Private Client Solicitor

We have a fantastic opportunity for a solicitor (NQ - 3 years PQE+) to join our growing Wealth Management and Taxation Team.  

Allan Janes have a strong speciality in Private Client work. The firm's client base is largely made up of SME business owners and high net worth individuals, often with complex estate planning issues. 

It is fair to say that we don't simply 'draft Wills' and the position would suit someone looking to take on varied and technical estate and tax planning matters. The role will cover the following:

  • Full estate planning advice both on a consultancy basis and as part of the preparation of Wills, Trusts and other wealth management vehicles; 

  • The preparation and administration of lifetime trusts including advice on compliance and taxation; 

  • The preparation of Powers of Attorney for personal, business and trust uses;

  • The administration of estates and trusts;

  • Business Development (blog writing, wining and dining professional contacts, preparing seminars etc)

We appreciate that you may not have had experience on more technical estate planning matters previously. However, the ideal candidate will show a good grounding in basic private client practice and a desire to experience this kind of work. They will also either be pursuing, or ready to pursue, their STEP qualification. The department is currently made up of 2 fully STEP qualified practitioners who will be able to offer in-depth training to the right person.

The firm itself also embraces a fun atmosphere. We're a relaxed, friendly and sociable bunch and the role would fit someone like-minded.
