Associate/Senior Associate private client solicitor

Due to our continued growth we are looking to recruit a private client solicitor with significant post qualification experience likely to already be at Associate/Senior Associate level.  

The role will involve working within a multi-disciplinary team including tax specialists and solicitors to advise on the full range of private client work including estate planning, Wills, the administration of high-value and complex estates, trust administration and personal tax planning.

Meridian is one of the largest private client teams in the Midlands, and are recognised as one of the leading firms in this area. Much of our work involves technical advice on inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax. We also provide highly specialised advice to individuals and trustees on international tax issues and cross border succession. Experience in these areas would be an advantage but not a necessity as full training and support would be given.

The successful candidate is likely to have over 4 years post qualification experience and be STEP qualified. However, we will consider applications from strong candidates with less experience, but with a desire to specialise.  We would expect candidates to have an interest in dealing with complex matters and experience in the following:

  • Preparation of Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney for HNW clients;
  • Lifetime estate planning to include advising on inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax;
  • Trust advice including establishing lifetime trusts, bringing trusts to an end, and providing advice to trustees and beneficiaries on the ongoing taxation, administration and management of trusts (alongside our trust management team); and
  • Administering complex estates, often with cross-border issues or business assets, and advising on post-death tax planning.

We offer a competitive package with potential for career progression and flexible working arrangements.
