Children Panel Solicitor and Family Lawyer wanted - Central London

McCormacks Law

Children Panel Solicitor and Family Lawyer

We have two positions available.

Panel Solicitor to join our specialist team in a lively environment. Flexible working hours available and can be full time or part time to suit personal arrangements. We are results-based and not hours obsessed. Central London Location in prestigious offices.

It is not essential but applicants with prior experience of using TiKit case management system will find transition easy. 

You will be joining a team of experienced advocates.  This is a high profile firm, with active advocates and a good reputation. We are an unfussy, supportive firm where you will be encouraged to find your own niche within the team.  We encourage a congenial working environment, where solicitors are encouraged to determine their own caseloads and develop their own careers. There will be some privately funded Children Act work. 

There is a good support structure in terms of professional development and if you are ambitious, you will be backed by the firm to build your career and take it as far as you can.

Those who like to work collaboratively with experienced colleagues, undertaking all court hearings, including fact finding hearing and final hearings, some of which are complex and challenging will enjoy the position.

Staff tend to stay with us a long time and the position arises from staff relocating to other parts of the country with their families from London after many years.  

"McCormacks trained me and I have been working here for 16 years.  I enjoyed the independence to develop my own career, at my pace, starting as a junior solicitor. I now represent clients in lengthy hearings and act for children as a panel member.  My senior partner has shown himself to be loyal and supportive over the years, artfully keeping the firm solvent through turbulent times for legal aid.  Colleagues have a vast amount of experience to call on and I will really miss them all."
