Thrings is a vibrant expanding law firm with a diverse client base offering excellent career prospects to talented and driven individuals.  We operate in offices in Bristol, Bath, London, Swindon and Romsey, serving clients within the UK, but increasingly with an international presence.

We’re a client focussed firm who has award winning lawyers working for us.  We’re noted by Chambers & Partners for the relationships we’ve built with our clients, and the increasing presence we’re building in the markets and clients we serve.  We provide a range of services to different clients in areas such as Agriculture, Private Client, Corporate & Commercial and Commercial Property and are noted for having specialists that practice in each of these areas.  We work across offices, with different practice areas to best serve the needs of our clients.

Our highly regarded Agricultural team based in Bristol are looking for a Solicitor/Legal Executive to join them to provide support to our clients who face litigious disputes; you will be acting for famers, landowners and agri-businesses.   Working directly with Partners and Associates, you will support them with progressing matters on high profile, bigger cases, but you will be expected to run your own caseload.  The type of work you will be exposed to includes farm partnership disputes, inheritance disputes, contractual disputes, negligence and nuisance claims.  You will ensure that everything is dealt with in a timely and efficient way with the client focus that is synonymous with Thrings’ ethos.

Ideally you will already have agricultural or rural experience, but this isn’t essential; what you will need is litigious experience gained through your training contract or post qualification, a can do, proactive attitude, the ability to use your own initiative but also be a great team player. 

At Thrings we like to pride ourselves on being seen as the trusted legal partner to the clients we advise, and as such we’re looking for someone who can build that rapport and relationship with the clients they will be supporting.  We’re acting in the best interests of our clients that engage with us so we need someone on board who is able to excel in relationship building.  If you’re able to turn a problem into a solution then you’re just the person we’re looking to hear from!

The role with Thrings would suit someone who is keen to develop their career at a top 100 Law Firm. Our Agricultural team is ranked number 1 in Chambers and Legal 500, so you will be working with well regarded peers who are keen for someone who is ambitious to join them in the work they do.  In return you can expect to receive a competitive package including the opportunity to take Private Medical Insurance, the ability to buy and sell annual leave, a generous pension scheme and whole host more.
