The role

Edward Cooke Family Law, a specialist Sussex family law practice is looking for a bright and forward-thinking family lawyer of 1-5 years PQE. This role is an exciting opportunity to join one of the leading specialist family law firms on the South Coast. The practice was founded in 2018 by Resolution National Committee member Edward Cooke.

The role comes with excellent prospects for career progression. The candidate will ideally have 1-5 years PQE, however we would also welcome applications from other candidates who may be interested in joining our friendly and fast growing team at our two offices near Chichester and in Brighton (including those looking to relocate from London or elsewhere).

The candidate will be based primarily at our head office in idyllic surroundings at Chilgrove, near Chichester, in the heart of the South Downs. We are family friendly employers, support flexible working and provide excellent support in terms of wellbeing including monthly therapeutic support and a weekly (non-compulsory!) team exercise class in a beautiful location.

Candidate specification

We are looking for a principled and people-focused family lawyer fully committed to the Resolution ethos who currently undertakes a mixed caseload of financial and children work. The candidate should be a Resolution member. Collaborative training is a plus, however if the candidate has not yet undertaken collaborative training then collaborative training may be offered to the successful applicant, as the practice has a strong focus on dispute resolution and is fully committed to supporting the professional development of all its lawyers.

The individual should be a committed team player, have a strong interest in marketing and networking, and be enthusiastic and excited about participating in the continuing development of the practice.
