Job Title: Senior Solicitor/Conveyancer
Position: Full Time – Permanent 
Location: Paignton, Devon

Fortress Law Solicitors is a niche private practise advising high net worth individuals and corporate clients in the area of tax and estate planning. We work closely with a large number of professional intermediaries across the UK and overseas to devise and implement tax and estate planning strategies designed to meet the specific needs of our clients. Our clients are local, national and international.

Due to our strong professional connections, client base and estate agency contacts, combined with the increasing requests we receive to provide property services to our clients, we believe that now is the perfect time to launch our new property department.

We therefore have an exciting opportunity for an experienced solicitor/conveyancer to launch Fortress Law’s conveyancing department. This is a fantastic platform for an enthusiastic and hardworking individual to create their own department.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of keen marketing ability and be able to manage their own caseload of residential and commercial property transactions. The successful candidate will receive full support to establish and build the department. This is a unique opportunity for someone who is seeking a new challenge and the chance to lead their own department and to build a highly ambitious, skilled and experienced team around them.

Perhaps, in your current position, you are unable to identify a clear career path for yourself and feel that to progress your own career, now is the time to make that next important step to a position where you can lead your own department and put into practise your own ideas.

Maybe you feel undervalued and want to join a firm that is progressive, pro-active and which supports a person’s career development and rewards hard work.

You might be a property solicitor or conveyancer with your own professional connections and high net worth clients and believe that joining our niche practise will add significant value to those relationships.

If you fit any of the above situations and want an exciting and challenging opportunity, please contact us.
