Clare Young  featured in a great article in the Yorkshire Post by Ismail Mulla about the reasons behind her move to Legal Studio Solicitors and the trend of lawyers becoming Consultant Solicitors during the Pandemic. 

Clare says: “It has brought into focus what you think is important in your life”.

Clare specialises in Private Client Services and can assist you with:
  • Making a Will;
  • Making a Lasting Power of Attorney;
  • Creating a lifetime trust to protect property and other assets for children;
  • Inheritance Tax and ways in which you might reduce your tax bill;
  • Declarations of Trust to protect unequal contributions when buying property;
  • Probate to sort out the estate of a loved one who has died.
Clare says:

The peace of mind brought about by knowing that have put your affairs in order is immeasurable.  By ensuring that you have a valid Will in place in the event of your death and that you have appointed trusted people to act on your behalf if you become physically or mentally incapacitated, you can rest assured that your loved ones will not be left with any difficulties later on in life.  If you have accumulated some wealth during your lifetime, you are likely to want to preserve that wealth for the benefit of the next generation and our expert advice can assist you to achieve this.

Are you, looking for a Paralegal position with the genuine prospect of securing a Training Contract? Well, we’re hiring at Legal Studio.
 
There will be admin work. You’ll be expected to help out with a variety of tasks for Ian, Matt, Louise and the wider team. Some of them will be boring. But we can promise you that the job won’t be. As a business focussed on our team enjoying work, you’ll be integral to making sure that they get what they need, when they need it. And they can be pretty demanding. So you’ll need to be organised, methodical and efficient. But by doing so, you’ll get to learn the ropes from experienced, characterful and genuinely nice lawyers. Plus, as you grow into the role, we’d like to think you’ll develop you own case load too, whilst always having access to supervision (be that virtual or physical).
 
You’ll start on a salary of £18,000, with 28 days annual leave (plus Bank Holidays) and genuine flexible working as standard. And, if you progress as we hope and expect you will, once you’ve been in the role for a year we’d expect to offer you a Training Contract to continue your development. Finally, whilst no one truly knows what’s going to be happening this year with offices etc. this role will be a hybrid one, split between the office and working from home.
 
So, if you’re interested, please send your C.V to ian.mccann@legalstudio.co.uk along with the answer to these two questions:
  1. Why do you want to work for Legal Studio; and
  2. Would you rather have sausages for fingers or fishfingers for toes and why? (thank you John James for that one).
 
Closing Date for Applications: 6 April 2021

Legal Studio featured in Legal Futures on 9 March 2021 following the recent study by Arden Partners predicting that in five years’ time, a third of solicitors would be working as consultants.

Whilst that number is high, even half that level of growth would see a massive expansion.

Legal Studio Consultant numbers have grown from 10 to 16 in the past year and the stated aim is to move that to  “a consultant a month” from now on.

Chief executive Ian McCann said the only limit was the firm’s “culture and character”, which he wanted to maintain.

“We treat our consultants as our clients. We are genuinely interested in what their aims and ideas are, and we listen to them.”

Mr McCann said that to celebrate relaxation of the lockdown and the ability to meet a single person outside for a chat, every consultant had been sent a recyclable coffee cup this weekend, with a bag of locally hand-roasted coffee, branded as Legal Studio Catch-up Coffee.
