A leading law firm based in London are looking for an experienced Court of Protection paralegal to join them on a 2 -year FTC basis.
The role will entail providing an outstanding administrative and legal service for colleagues and clients under supervision. The role will involve day to day contact with clients, some of which will be vulnerable. The successful candidate will be producing witness statements, court applications and other documentation when required. The role will also involve making payments, forecasting spending and creating budgets.
The Court of Protection team take a lot of their work from the Injury and Medical claims department when they become new clients. This is because a lot of their clients have brain injuries, receive interim awards and therefore need the support of setting up houses, setting up care etc. Therefore, an understanding of the personal injury litigation process would be advantageous.
Our client is looking for a candidate with a law degree, the LPC (or near completion), and crucially a proven track record in dealing with Court of Protection issues at a well-known law firm(s). Exemplary IT and organisational skills are essential.
Our client is looking for candidates who can fully commit to a 2-year FTC. However, a training contract is not possible.
