Senior Associate - Contentious Probate


London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Ref#: 144242

At Greenwoods it’s all about growth and we see contentious probate practice as a key part of our firm’s future.

We want to hear from experienced contentious probate lawyers who share the same passion for client service, the drive to win work and who are looking to develop their career in a dynamic and progressive business. This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious senior solicitor who is seeking a path to Partnership.

We have a hugely successful and growing Disputes and Wealth Preservation team which has recently been bolstered by a nine strong Private Client team move from Ince & Co, headed up by Matthew Biles. This role will work closely with our Disputes and Wealth Preservation Teams.

About you

Our ideal candidate is likely to have at least 8 + PQE and have significant experience in contentious probate work, with a good understanding of the challenges in relation to the validity or construction of wills.

This will include all types of inheritance disputes including applications contesting the validity of wills, applications to remove executors and/or trustees, claims for reasonable financial provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, rectification of Wills and breach of trust claims, and contentious Court of Protection applications.

You may have experience with professional negligence claims relating to wills, trusts or tax advice, multi-jurisdictional estates including domicile disputes, and/or experience with property beneficial ownership / TLATA disputes.

This is an exceptional opportunity for the right candidate who is seeking a path to Partnership.  In the short term, a key part of this role will be taking on existing work generated by the Wealth Preservation Team. In the long term, the role will focus on creating and delivering new work.

The successful candidate will possess great technical expertise, along with a desire to develop and implement a business development strategy, and demonstrable experience in forming long-standing client and referrer relationships.

We invest in the stories of our clients. We work with real people, doing remarkable things across a variety of situations. As lawyers, we dedicate ourselves to providing tailored advice and support that makes a positive impact on the people who need us.

We have a strong belief in delivering excellent client service, taking the time to understand client requirements, objectives and concerns and provide bespoke solutions to complex situations; enjoy building relationships across our teams and locations and be able to do so quickly; possess strong communication skills and a flexible approach; be proactive in taking action and be innovative to realise the firm’s ambitions; and be self-motivated, able to prioritise workloads and meet deadlines whilst remaining resilient under pressure and competing demands.
