He is also a former member of the Law Society Family Law Committee, and a past trustee of the Family Mediators Association.

We believe that being a dynamic niche practice gives us a long-term competitive advantage. How clients choose solicitors and utilise our services has changed considerably in the last 10 years and these changes are likely to continue. Being committed to sensible dispute resolution and being engaged in conversations about the development of the practice of family law will assist us to continue to attract good quality work.

This is a fantastic opportunity with long-term prospects.

Person specification

the successful candidate:

A bit more about the job

Everyone in our team is theoretically based in Honiton office – which is the central location in our office network. This means they need to come into the office at least once a week so that they are fully part of the team (no competing and divisive branch cultures for us). However, there is very ample scope for flexible working.

Being based in Honiton has advantages. Our office is next to the A30 and has ample free parking. It is a 30 minute drive to central Taunton and to central Exeter. It is 45 minutes to Yeovil and under an hour to Plymouth. This means our office is centrally located between the courts that we cover. Coming into the office means avoiding commuter traffic.

Ideally the successful candidate will help develop our Devon work and in particular Exeter and East Devon – but we are happy to consider applicants who are located elsewhere – our practice is very much built around its team.
