Job Description

Court of Protection Paralegal opportunities with one of the UK's leading Court of Protection Departments.
The Opportunity
Our client is seeking two dedicated Court of Protection Paralegals to join their market-leading Department. One based in central London, and one based in South London.
The department is Legal 500 ranked and highly respected. They handle welfare and financial litigation in the Court of Protection, as well as deputyships arising from complex personal injury and clinical negligence cases. The work is complex and compensation claims are often in the multi-millions.
The Department's clients include those with brain injury, severe physical disability, and mental illness.
Duties
As a Court of Protection Paralegal, your duties will include:
  • Supporting Solicitors and Partners on Court of Protection cases that are referred to the department following an often complex personal injury settlement
  • Assisting in the provision of administrative and legal services for vulnerable clients
  • Attending clients at their home, in hospital, and in care homes
  • Making regular payments on behalf of clients, keeping accurate schedules and forecasting future spend/budget
  • Managing written and telephone correspondence with clients professionally
  • Producing letters, witness statements, court applications and other documents as required
  • Maintaining client care standards as set out in the firm's terms of business
Both opportunities require full-time office working during probation. Thereafter, the role in central London will be hybrid and the role in South London will be fully office based (bar occasional remote working when needed).
Benefits
The firm offer a comprehensive benefits package, to include:
  • £31,000 - £32,000 starting salary
  • Private healthcare
  • Life insurance
  • Income protection
  • Annual staff bonus
  • Contribution to gym membership
  • 25 days annual leave
  • Hybrid working (central London role)
Both roles offer excellent progression prospects. Successful applicants can apply for a training contract in the future, and SQE funding is offered. Those not seeking to qualify in the future are still encouraged to apply.
Required Experience
  • Minimum 6 months' experience working as a Court of Protection, Medical Negligence or Personal Injury Paralegal is essential *applicants without this experience will not be considered
  • Exceptional attention to detail
  • An interest in working with and supporting vulnerable clients
  • Willingness to work in an office
