Career opportunities in Private Client

Our Private Client department is one of the largest in our region and offers fantastic opportunities for those looking to develop their technical expertise in a supportive environment and work with clients who value excellent service.

Our expertise in Private Client advisory work has been key to the long term growth and success of our practice. Around 80% of our business is drawn from York and across rural North and East Yorkshire, an area of relative affluence and dominated by successful, family-owned businesses. As a result, demand for technically sophisticated Private Client advice is high and our Private Client solicitors, legal executives and paralegals often work very closely with colleagues in other departments, including Commercial; Family; Agricultural, Commercial and Residential Property; and Personal Injury.

We are very fortunate that our clients value and appreciate good service and we do our very best, both within the Private Client Department and across the firm as a whole, to ensure we always deliver excellent standards of advice and service.

We also recognise that, throughout their careers, those specialising in Private Client benefit from being able to call on colleagues as sounding boards for technical issues and how best to steer a course in specific situations. We always encourage a collaborative approach to our work within Private Client and further support this with structured sessions to share best practice and to build up technical skills within the department.

We are very happy to have informal and confidential discussions with you if you are thinking about the next steps in your career within Private Client or are considering this practice area for the first time and want to understand how our approach and opportunities might work for you.
