Job Title Private Client Partner / Senior Associate
Job Location Bristol
The role – We are seeking to recruit a confident and business development focussed Partner or Senior Associate to support the growth of our client’s ambitious Trust & Estates team. Based in our Bristol office, you will work directly with the Head of Department to build a new Private Client team in that location. Potentially either bringing a following or a book of contacts with you, you will be handling a range of matters including:

• Non-contentious private client/wealth, with an entrepreneur and family office focus, working alongside corporate, tax and commercial property teams
• Advising in relation to IHT planning, will, LPA and Trust drafting
• Advising individuals on lifetime giving and the protection of wealth
• Providing pre-sale tax planning advice for shareholders in private limited companies
• Owner-managed business succession
• Advising institutional trustees and executors (including private banks/family offices), on all aspects of trusteeship and estate administration
• Administering taxable estates (with business assets, agricultural assets and trust interests, etc).


You will have already gained considerable experience in these types of matters, and have developed a strong reputation locally with a variety of clients and business networks. We will expect you to take a key role in growing the new Bristol team, increasing our presence within the market through your positive and proactive approach to business development.


About You – With an exemplary reputation for high-quality private client work in Bristol, you will have already demonstrated your ability to build lasting relationships, whilst developing new business networks and connections in the local market. With an established client following or contacts, you’re an excellent communicator who readily gains the confidence of clients you are working with, and business development activity is something you naturally gravitate towards, and relish taking on. Dynamic and highly motivated, you’re keen to get out and about to make the most of new business opportunities, and by doing so, will create your own following over time if you don’t already have one. In all aspects of your work with us, we’ll be looking to you to help us increase our reputation and reach in the Bristol market. Naturally resilient, you already show your ability to cope with stressful and demanding situations, and are accustomed to working under pressure to meet challenging deadlines. Tenacious and thorough with good commercial judgement, you work hard to find the best possible solutions, and are meticulous in your work. This is a great opportunity if you’re ambitious and keen to stand out, as we’ll seek to invest in you, and support your learning and development goals, in order for you to achieve career progression, and realise your long term ambitions.


About Us – Our national law firm client is proud of being a professional yet friendly, non-hierarchical firm, where our client wants their people to enjoy working together to achieve great results.

In addition, our spacious modern offices at EC4 are perfectly appointed to support your business development work.
