An opportunity has arisen within the Gatwick office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell for an experienced solicitor to join our Private Wealth tax, trusts and estates team.
This role will involve working closely with the existing team to advise high net worth clients on the legal and tax aspects of succession planning, tax planning and asset protection. This involves giving clear and practical advice on and implementing trusts, complex wills, deeds of variations, probate, powers of attorney and Court of Protection applications.
Our clients come to us from our existing, extensive client base, introductions from external private wealth professionals and other Irwin Mitchell teams across the nationwide office network from teams within our Personal Legal Services and Business Legal Services Divisions. Clients are located across the country and there is sometimes the need to travel to other offices. They typically have complex requirements due to the value or type of assets owned, the applicable tax rules or their personal needs and circumstances.
The successful candidate will have primary responsibility for some matters with appropriate supervision and also support from junior assistants and support senior colleagues on other matters. They will be able to demonstrate strong financial disciplines, an aptitude for business development and the ability to work collaboratively with other teams. This role is ideal for a STEP qualified candidate who is keen to develop their technical knowledge and skills through the many opportunities offered within Irwin Mitchell.
If you are a qualified solicitor with experience in this field, a passion for supporting your clients, contributing to the growth and profitability of the team and developing the Private Wealth proposition in the region we would love to hear from you. For more information or confidential discussion, please get in touch.
In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.
