Private Client Solicitor (NQ – 2Yrs)


Thorntons has one of the largest Private Client teams in Scotland. Our team are experts in every aspect of Private Client work and are recognised as leaders in their field. Our firm is growing and we are looking for another Solicitor to join this busy team. We are flexible on location for this role, although ideally it will be based in one of our Fife, Angus or Dundee offices. Our hybrid working approach allows for a blend of working at home as well as in the office.

Where every day is different

You will advise individuals and families on all aspects of planning for their future including Wills, Executries, Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Tax and Estate planning and Asset protection. The strength and breadth of experience in the team means that you will have a strong support network as you develop your experience and expertise in this field and we will fully support you to achieve your long term career goals.

About you

You will ideally have some previous experience in Wills, Trusts and Executries either during your Traineeship or as a Qualified Solicitor. You will be passionate about client service and committed to building and sustaining good client relationships. You will be comfortable working in a fast paced environment, have excellent attention to detail, and strong communication skills necessary to work in a multi-location team. You will also be keen to play a role in business development and networking activities and participate in the strategic growth of the firm.

About us

Thorntons has grown significantly in recent years following a number of strategic mergers and investments into one of Scotland’s top 5 independent law firms. Throughout its successful expansion, our focus has remained the same, to provide the highest quality legal advice and service, when and where clients need it.

We are progressive and ambitious. While we expect high standards from our people, we recognise and value the contribution they make to our business – and our success. We see the whole person, not just the person in the workplace – and we’re aware that our people have busy lives outside work. Our advanced technology allows many of our people to benefit from agile working. It’s simple common sense: do our best for our people and they’ll do their best for us.

At Thorntons we pride ourselves on doing what is right, and as two time winners of the Scottish Business Insider Employer of the Year Awards you can see why our People choose, and enjoy a career with Thorntons.
