Private Client Solicitor – Ready for a life changing role? – 18665 Ref: 18665

£65,000 Plus Extensive Benefits

We do things a bit differently at Hedges…

We may have a 235-year heritage as a Private Client Law Practice, but that doesn’t mean we’re a stale, dull & suppressive legal firm, like so many. No chance.

And for this reason we’re not for everyone

If you’re happy to soldier on in the corner with little to no ‘voice’ and are happy for your career progress and earning potential to be stuck in a holding pattern then we’re not for you.

// We’re categorically different and boldly embrace this – Are you a “Legal Maverick” who is bored and wants MORE now?

Whilst we ‘doff our hats’ to past custodians, as current incumbents it’s our job to innovate, excite, and ensure that when future generations look at our pictures lining the wall, not only can they see what a nice and friendly bunch we are, BUT also that we were the ‘dream team’, the mavericks, the leaders in the field, the game-changers that make Hedges one of the most beautifully different law firms of its time.

Word on the street: “City Firm Quality exported to Oxfordshire”.

// One of only 5 employee-owned law firms in the UK

In short – you will own part of the company. (We’ll just let that sink in). We are the fifth employee-owned law firm in the UK, meaning you will have a share in the business’ success from day one. There’s no ‘buy-in’ and no liability with our innovative trust shareholder structure. It's really special.

Last year was our biggest revenue year yet and we have ambitious and exciting plans for the future – there’s still so much to do and achieve and we’re not happy unless we’re pushing boundaries… And we want you to be part of that.
