Latimer Hinks is an independent niche law firm based in Darlington, in the North East of England.
 
The firm has an excellent reputation as a leader in the private client arena, and is looking to recruit a talented lawyer to complement their existing team of 14 fee earners.
 
You should have a solid academic background and be able to work, manage and prioritise your own caseload.  A proactive and enthusiastic attitude with a team-working ethos is desired.  
 
Our core work focuses on private client law and has an extensive client base in the North East, North Yorkshire and beyond.  We feel that each client is individual and that looking after their legal affairs requires a bespoke approach.  The firm’s breadth of expertise is recognised by recommendations for both the firm and individuals within the team, in Chambers HNW and The Legal 500.
 
The successful applicant will be STEP qualified, ready to ‘hit the ground running’ and have a strong commercial background.  The candidate will play an important role in the team.  The department is fast-paced and the ideal candidate will need to be able to manage their own client and professional relationships; work to deadlines, often by their own initiative, but with support and supervision from experienced colleagues. 
 
As a fee earner in the department you will be encouraged to develop your own specialisms within the areas of work such as inheritance tax planning, Court of Protection and trust and estate administration and contentious private client matters.
