Purpose of role

An opportunity has arisen for an Associate in our Glasgow/Edinburgh office, although Glasgow would be the preferred location.

The successful candidate will enjoy working in a highly productive environment where individuals gain exposure to high quality work and opportunities to develop. The role will involve carrying out a wide range of core private client work, including Wills, Powers of Attorney, Executry Administration, Trust Administration, charity law and estate planning.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a first class team within a progressive firm where individuals can grow and develop their careers.

We are a truly global law firm and as such, always welcome hearing from those with foreign language capabilities. In light of our recent combination, Mandarin language fluency would be particularly advantageous given that China is now core to our strategy.
