THE ROLE:
A thriving legal aid practice has an exceptional opportunity available for an ambitious Solicitor to join their growing Court of Protection team. As a highly valued member of the team, you will be tasked with handling your own caseload of Court of Protection matters, offering advice to patients and families of patients who lack capacity to make decisions on such as their general care, residence and medical treatment. Your workload will consist of (but will not be limited to) providing advice concerning the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards framework and applications for Deputyship and Lasting Power of Attorney. The appointed Court of Protection Solicitor will be working within a highly specialised team fully committed to being leaders in their field, alongside delivering a compassionate service to clients. The successful individual will be working under the supervision of long-serving and established senior solicitors, offering an unrivalled development opportunity.

Candidates seeking to retrain should be able to demonstrate their specific interest in this area of law and their motivations to do so.
The ability to develop strong relationships with a broad range of clients, often under difficult circumstances, is a key skill for this role.
