PRIVATE CLIENT SOLICITOR
Legal Works Client is recognised as being one of the leading Private Client firms in the country and are seeking an experienced associate (2-5PQE) to be based in the London office.
The FIRM has a long history of advising private clients and this continues to be a core part of the business. The Private Client and Tax Group advises clients from both the UK and overseas, who own assets that range from busy international businesses to traditional landed estates. The FIRM specialises in giving proactive tax, trusts and commercial advice that helps those clients to preserve and enhance their wealth. The focus is on providing a very personal service to clients with complex needs.
The Private Client & Tax TEAM is based in both London and Thames Valley/Oxon and consists of a supportive and professional group of lawyers, ranging from junior assistant solicitors to highly experienced and renowned Partners. There is no distinction between the types of work handled in the different locations and client teams are often cross-locational.
Our Client is looking for a bright, motivated & enthusiastic solicitor and are seeking YOU if you have trained at reputable City or West End Firms. YOU will have gained mainstream private client experience during their training contract and beyond. Your experience will ideally include UK tax planning and preferably (but not essentially) exposure to complex UK/non-UK trust structures and offshore experience.
When successful YOU will advise on the full spectrum of tax planning for high net worth individuals and trustees, landed estates, entrepreneurs and resident/non-resident and domiciled/non-domiciled clients. This is a rare opportunity to do London-type private client work outside the Capitol in a much sought after location, as part of a friendly, busy and highly motivated team.
