The Family Team at Paris Smith is ranked number one in the region by both Chambers and the Legal 500 and we are now looking to recruit a 0-5 year PQE solicitor to join in and continue that success.

Family Solicitor – 0-5 years PQE – Southampton (no agencies please)

The Role

This role represents a fantastic opportunity to work closely with a partner with an established reputation in dealing with all aspects of family law; more particularly high net worth matrimonial finance.

The quality of the work enjoyed by this partner is second to none and requires exceptional levels of client care, case management, creativity and the ability to understand not only the detail; but also to stand back and take in the bigger picture.

This is a challenging role but one which offers the chance to enjoy a quality of work that some may never have the chance to experience their entire career. It also offers the chance to work with people who are not only fun to work with but who also excel in their field.

The Candidate

The ideal candidate will have specialised post qualification in family law with experience that will include advising clients on matters relating to:

  • divorce and separation
  • the sharing of high value or complex financial resources following divorce or separation
  • cohabitation
  • children (private law)

They will also have practical experience of drafting (including petitions, applications, forms E, questionnaires, court orders and briefs to counsel) and advocacy.

Accordingly, the successful candidate must be a team player and possess the following attributes:

  • strong technical ability
  • exceptional client care skills
  • the ability to communicate complex law, scenarios and solutions in a simple and clear way verbally and in writing
  • creativity
  • be organised and a good time manager
  • the ability to think strategically and focus on outcome rather than just process
  • confidence
  • a commercial mindset
