Join an innovative, forward-thinking law firm that places its employees at the forefront of everything they do. You will find unrivalled progression prospects, an interesting client base, and a flexible, inclusive culture that is rewarding and exciting to be a part of.

The Firm:

Due to consistent, organic growth, this firm has doubled in size over the past 5 years and has exciting plans to build on this nationally. They currently have more than five offices across the North West, servicing an interesting client base of national corporations, SMEs, and HNW individuals.

The firm is well-known for the number of homegrown partners that they house, and you can expect a high level of investment into your career development and progression. Over 85% of their Partners came in at trainee/junior level and have worked their way up to Partnership in a short period.

One of the best things about the firm is the culture, evidenced by their extremely high staff retention rate. Whilst the firm is now well over 100 Lawyers strong, they have retained a family feel, and office politics are non-existent. Once we are back to normal, there will be regular social events, including nights out and days away, that allow you to build close relationships with your colleagues within your team and the wider firm.

The Role:

This is an excellent opportunity for an NQ Family Solicitor to join a close-knit Family team in Chester.
The Family team is the firm's beating heart and will play a pivotal role in its long-term growth plans.

You will undertake a varied caseload of care/public law matters, but the firm will consider individuals who have experience handling a mix of private & public family law.

You will work side by side with the Family department's respected Partners, giving you a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from. This will provide you with a level of exposure that will put you years ahead of your PQE.

The salary is highly competitive, and you will receive an attractive benefits package that includes 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), additional pension contributions, and bonus.


  • You will be NQ - 2 years PQE with strong experience in Public Family Law
  • Able to confidently handle your own caseload
  • Experience of care/public law matters, although applications will be considered from individuals with experience handling a mix of public and private law matters
  • Have a passion for providing exceptional client service
  • Able to work as part of a close-knit team and independently

This is a standout opportunity for a Family Solicitor to join a growing, regional law firm at an exciting time as they look to expand nationally and continue to grow their reputation.
