Job description

About the role

An exciting opportunity has come up for an junior level lawyer to strengthen our clients family law practice. The firm has an established client base that provides a steady flow of files to work on a range of matters. The partners encourage a culture that is welcoming, approachable, supportive and flexible, allowing you to develop your skills and progress internally at the firm.

This role works across the full gamut of family law work which includes helping individuals protect their assets in a relationship as well as navigating through complex separations and dealing with relationship disputes (care of children, family violence etc.). You'll have the opportunity to get involved in other dispute resolution files for example in the civil litigation and property disputes area too if that was of interest.  

Being a general practice led by experienced partners, you will have all the support you need to develop your practice in the local community, allowing you the freedom to promote your personal brand to attract new clients to the firm. Since there is a good balance of being able to work autonomously on files while having the support of the team, this would be an excellent role to consider if you are thinking of a change.
 
About you
  • 1-3 years PQE experience in family law gained in either a specialist family law practice or within a family law team at a general practice. You may have a broader litigation skillset e.g. in employment law or civil litigation which would be useful too;
  • A relatable personality and able to exude empathy to clients in tricky situations; and
  • An interest to develop your skills further in the family law field.
