Community Care/Court of Protection Solicitor

We are seeking a solicitor to join our growing community care team in East London. This is an exciting opportunity for a newly-qualified to 3 years’ PQE lawyer to contribute to a department dedicated to providing good quality legal advice and representation in a range of community care issues, including representation in the Court of Protection. We are committed to the legal aid scheme and the majority of our clients are funded this way.

You will be experienced in all aspects of community care and Court of Protection work. You will need to share our passion for access to justice and have good knowledge of the legal aid scheme.

You will be working with colleagues specialising in housing and public law. We have been recognised by Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 as providing good quality advice and representation. Currently we are unable to meet demand for our community care and Court of Protection services and you will be given the opportunity to grow and develop this area of work.

Our staff are without doubt our best asset and we reward performance, provide flexible working practices and positively encourage every individual’s contribution as to how we deliver services. We are market leaders in legal sector IT infrastructure systems and billing. As acknowledged in our Lexcel accreditation, we offer excellent support and training opportunities.
