Court of Protection Department
We are looking for an experienced Court of Protection solicitor to join our expanding and dynamic Court of Protection team. Our team currently consists of four solicitors and two (soon to be three) trainee solicitors.
We primarily represent P in welfare cases, most frequently instructed on P’s behalf by the Official Solicitor, and we also represent family members. Experience of mental capacity matters, best interests and welfare issues in the Court of Protection is essential.
We are looking for someone who has particular experience in representing P, by his/her litigation friend the Official Solicitor, and preferably with experience of supervising other fee earners. They need to be conscientious, driven, organised, and work well in a team.
The ideal candidate will be an ambitious practitioner experienced in COP work. We are looking for someone with the potential to progress to associate status within the firm, a role which involves supervisory responsibility.
Salary up to £42,000, dependent on experience. We also provide health insurance.
