Legal Southwest

Our Client is an independent law firm with recognised expertise in specialist market sectors. They have an extensive client base, many of whom are high profile, and they cover a broad range of industry sectors within the UK and internationally.

On behalf of our client and as a consequence of the continuing volume of high-quality work, an opportunity has arisen for an ambitious, experienced, full time fee earner to join their friendly, hard-working, dynamic team in Exeter.

The role will include developing your own caseload, whilst assisting on larger, more complex cases conducted by the Senior Associate or the Partner in the team.

A guideline for experience is 5 Years PQE or equivalent.

A proven track record in developing an area of work would be useful, together with a willingness to be involved in the firm’s marketing and business development plan. Local knowledge is also important, as many of our clients come from the local community and choose to use this team because they offer a personalised bespoke service.

A full Driving Licence is essential as you will be expected to see clients at any or all of our offices, attend mediations, site visits, court, and conferences with Counsel.

The successful candidate will have a robust attitude, the ability to think strategically, with good attention to detail, strong interpersonal skills, be willing to take the initiative, and drive ideas forward.
