jobs description

Moore Barlow is currently seeking an Associate (Solicitor or Legal Executive) to join our Private Wealth Disputes Team based in Guildford.

More about us:

Formed via a merger in 2020, Moore Barlow is a leading law firm and we aim to be the best law firm to work for regionally. We are a career firm, providing access to high-quality work, long-term career opportunities and an environment built on the premise of being ‘human first’. In this instance, support and progression to Partnership is available for applicants keen to progress. Put simply, we care as much about your career as you do.

We are featured in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2024 list, and consistently achieve recognition for the quality of our services in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

We are now 450 people, including 280 lawyers and 58 Partners, with offices across the South-East and London.

More about the Private Wealth Disputes Team:

Led by Scott Taylor (Partner), our specialist Private Wealth Disputes Team has... received recognition in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for the quality of the service they provide their clients. Our team provides tailored support to individuals and families involved in disputes arising over wills, trusts, and estates, striving at all times to achieve the very best outcomes, be this through dispute resolution or litigation.

The loss of a loved one is difficult enough, without the added stress and emotion of a dispute arising over their will or estate; our team are experts at what they do, and part of this involves ensuring clients are guided through the dispute process with care, sensitivity, and all the support they require.

Day to day:

As an Associate, you will manage your own caseload of mixed private wealth dispute matters, as well as assist the Partner and Senior Associates on the more complex and involved instructions coming through the department. There will also be plenty of scope for you to assume the day-to-day responsibility for such matters, under the supervision of one of the senior lawyers. Additionally, our Associates play a vital role in the support and development of the less-experienced members of the department, including Trainee and Newly Qualified Solicitors.

Given the breadth of our expertise in this niche area of law, this position will provide the successful candidate with an excellent opportunity for further professional development and growth. They will be encouraged to play an active role in the marketing and business development activities of the team, as well as having a say in the longer-term strategic aims of the department.

What we look for:
• A qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive with prior experience in the field of Private Wealth Disputes. As this area of law is relatively niche, we are open to hearing from lawyers who currently have a mixed caseload that involves some private wealth disputes, and who are keen to specialise in this field.
• We do not tend to use PQE as the sole measure of experience, but we estimate this position would suit somebody with between 2-4 PQE. Ultimately, we are keen to hear from individuals who are currently at or feel ready to step into an Associate role, and who are keen to develop further as part of our specialist team.
• You will have experience in, or a keen interest to be involved in, marketing and business development activities.
• We are human-first in everything we do and seek people who share this trait. You will therefore have great communication skills, a passion for helping clients achieve their goals and the ability to think creatively.
• Whilst this position is offered full-time, we offer a split of working from home and in the office, we are a flexible team and are open to considering alternative working patterns.

If you have the required skills and experience and are keen to advance your career as part of our leading Private Wealth Disputes Team, then we strongly encourage you to apply.
