This is an established West Sussex firm with good coverage across the region at several sites. They have a reputation for delivering high quality advice and have developed some long term relationships with some very key clients across the Sussex coast. The team are effectively restructuring which will see everyone working closer together across the business  in order to maximise the potential and further grow the commercial reach even further.

It is felt that with the right individual who has an appetite to engage and develop business that a significant increase in departmental business is there to capitalise upon.

The position therefore represents a great opportunity to develop your expertise under the guidance of a highly regarded solicitor and partner at a firm that take on some of the best work in the region. Your development will also benefit from a great deal of client contact as well as partnering and engaging with other solicitors at the firm who themselves have an excellent track record.
