Burges Salmon

The market leading family team at Burges Salmon is recruiting. We are looking for a junior solicitor, ideally newly qualified or 1 year PQE.

The role

We are looking for somebody with excellent academics and evidence of appropriate experience and enthusiasm, who has focused on financial remedy cases and marital agreements. Some private law children experience would also be useful. You should be able to work with and adapt to a wide range of clients. We need a strong team player with good organisation and communication skills. Burges Salmon is committed to development so you can expect a wide range of training opportunities. You will be able to work effectively under supervision on a complex and varied workload and be enthusiastic to learn and gain experience.

The team

Burges Salmon's family team is one of the largest specialist financial teams in the region. It is headed by Partner Sarah Hoskinson who is a member of the International Academy of Family Lawyers and who has a busy international practice, working between Bristol and London. Consultant Alison Hawes also specialises in financial remedy cases, particularly those with a business element and complex assets. We work as part of Burges Salmon's award-winning private client and wealth structuring team of over 30 lawyers and there is strength in depth across the firm's expertise which compliments the unrivalled client service that we offer.


The team undertakes a challenging and varied range of family work in a collegiate and friendly structure. This is a superb opportunity to act for HNW private clients often with complex assets and international issues. You will work closely with senior members of the team, and will have the opportunity to work on financial remedy cases, marital agreements and private law children.

Burges Salmon is head quartered in Bristol and the role is Bristol based, but our lawyers also routinely work out of our London Office, particularly given our standing in the London markets and the international jurisdiction issues we handle.
