About Widdows Pilling & Co.
Widdows Pilling & Co. is a small, friendly and local firm with 5 partners and 2 other fee earners. They provide comprehensive legal services to a diverse client base who want a traditional personal service by people they can relate to.
Widdows Pilling & Co. prides themselves on the high quality of their work and the efficiency of their service, putting their clients’ needs to the forefront. They’ve established a range of legal services to meet the needs of the local community and provide them through a team of highly qualified and experienced staff using up to date technology.
They operate from a single High Street location in West Manchester with a core client catchment area down the East Lancashire corridor.
Who are they looking for?
They are looking for legal professionals who will accept that the future lies in building and maintaining relationships, and who will deliver exceptional client service.
They are flexible as to the background and experience that you bring:
- You may have relevant experience to join their property, private client or personal injury departments.
- Or you may come with a background in commercial property, business sales, share agreements and would relish the potential to build on their existing commercial base expanding the role.
- Alternatively, you might join them to work with their personal injury, dispute resolution or family law fee earners and point to ways in which the work could be expanded and departments developed.
What are they offering?
Widdows Pilling & Co. has no preset ideas other than a need to find the right people to take them forward. They are willing to talk flexible working. They do not do 12-hour days and there is no culture of proving your worth by being first in last out.
They are keen to provide a permanent opportunity for the right person. If this works for you and them, they will want to retain you and provide the opportunity to join the LLP on an equity sharing basis within a matter of 2/3 years. The good news is that you will not have to mortgage your house to buy in!
As part of the Law Returners Programme you will be fully supported in your transition back into work. You will benefit from the Career Returners Coaching Programme by Women Returners, as well as peer group support with other returners on the journey back to the legal profession.
