The role

Family Law Partners are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and dedicated Family Lawyer of 1 to 5 years PQE to join our established and growing Brighton team. You will be hungry to develop your skills and knowledge to help you reach your full potential as part of a supportive and collaborative team, whose work primarily comes from Sussex, Surrey and London, but with some clients based overseas.

Family Law Partners’ team of specialist family lawyers are recognised as experts by Resolution, Chambers UK (the only Band 1 firm in Brighton and the Surrounds) and Legal 500 (Band 1: Kent, Surrey, Sussex). As a firm we were the Law Society’s Medium Law Firm of the Year in 2019. Our respected team are committed to all forms of dispute resolution, as you will need to be. Family Law Partners is a unique place to broaden your experience, and one where you will be supported and encouraged as you develop your career in family law.

We offer client-centric innovation and efficient frameworks; an unbeatable client experience; personal and professional development with unlimited progression opportunities; specialist support teams and systems to remove the admin that sucks you away from supporting your clients, and developing your reputation and career. Technology is at the heart of what we do. You will be encouraged to share your creative ideas on how we can improve what we do and to help shape our growth. Your working hours can be flexible, including the chance to work from home (when home working is no longer the norm and we go back to the office).

Candidate specification

You will be confident in who you are, enthusiastic and willing to work in a collaborative way. You will want to reach your full potential and achieve your ambitions without affecting your work-life balance. You will be committed to wanting to achieve a DR qualification, but you must also be confident in working on cases where the decision of a tribunal is required. You will work in an environment where trust in one another is a core value and you will be supported in what you do as part of your professional growth and to ensure you feel safe and secure in your work.

We offer a competitive salary package and a supportive working environment with sociable, knowledgeable and committed colleagues. You will be encouraged to join our reflective practice groups to help look after your wellbeing. You will be truly part of a team and one where your voice will be heard.
