My client is a leading multi-service law firm with a well respected Private Client and Court of Protection team. They are seeking to grow further and looking for a Solicitor or Legal Executive level fee earner to administer a caseload of Court of Protection and Attorneyship matters.

Role:
You will personally manage your own caseload of Court of Protection matters concerning professional deputyships and trusts and Health & Welfare matters. You will work closely with clients who may come to the firm through a number of different channels including clients who have been awarded large compensation settlements following serious injury or accident, elderly clients or young or adult clients who have issues managing their personal finances due to mental capacity.
