Full Time
Opportunity to join one of Lancashire's leading law firms and work as part of a Legal 500 firm that have success across the board in both their commercial and personal service sectors. This role in particular will be to take on a senior role as a Partner within their highly successful Family Law team. This role can offer you:

- Immediate Partnership
- Salary up to £100,000
- Full Autonomy
- True Flexibility 

You will be joining a small team but with scope to increase headcount and add to the existing client base. This position can be based at any of their offices, so regardless of where you are based in Lancashire they will be happy to accommodate with an extremely flexible & generous hybrid working policy.

Ideally you will be a Senior Solicitor with a minimum of 8 years' PQE and will either be at Partner level already or Senior Associate. You will however need to be experienced dealing with private family law matters as this practice only specialise in dealing with private family law and HNW individuals. 

This position will primarily focus on management and helping the department grow, whilst also working with your existing colleagues & client base to improve processes. The business is going through a highly successful period with all departments busier than ever, leading to a consistent increase in turnover & profit so this is an opportune time to join and be part of the growth. 

There will be less of an emphasis placed on fee earning but there is a good mix of work in place to include private children work, civil partnerships, co-habitation agreements, divorce & ancillary relief, pre-nuptial agreements and much more....Your client base will also be varied and see you deal with local clients as well as more affluent clients on a regional scale. Whilst a following isn't a prerequisite for this role, if you were to have a core client base that would 'follow' you then that would be a substantial positive.

As a Partner you will be working with the existing management team and ensuring that team KPI's are achieved, new processes are implemented, recruitment is dealt with and client targets are achieved. 

Salary will be based on PQE but will likely be starting at £70,000 + a great Partner Benefits Scheme. For further information, please speak with Nick Skelly at QED Legal.
