Legal Assistant

Salary: Competitive
Location: Farnham/Guildford area

Keystone Law is one of the most respected law firms in the UK and its fast rise is reshaping the UK legal market. It is a multi-award-winning Top 100 law firm that is continuing to make waves. In 2017 it listed on the London Stock Exchange and it continues to go from strength to strength with investors and clients alike. The firm is ranked by Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 and in November 2020, it was named Law Firm of the Year at the prestigious The Lawyer Awards, the ultimate accolade in the legal industry. In January 2021, Keystone was also crowned Firm of the Year by RollOnFriday after achieving a 94% employee satisfaction score in the publication’s annual survey. As the UK’s happiest law firm, its lawyers are some of the most satisfied in the industry. 

Keystone’s lawyers are drawn from the partnerships of the top 50 firms and some high-quality boutique firms, who bring their client base with them. Clients include Nationwide, Neal’s Yard, RBS, Cancer Research, Virgin Atlantic and Siemens.

To support its ongoing growth, the firm seeks to recruit a Legal Assistant to be based in the Farnham/Guildford area working with one of our Property Team Consultant Solicitors.

The role would suit an applicant with a strong academic background and preferably a minimum of six months’ experience at a top-ranked law firm. The role involves a mix of non-contentious property work, predominantly commercial in nature but with a proportion of higher-value residential property work. The role will be varied and initially will involve preparing correspondence and documents, arranging appropriate searches, and administrative tasks such as cataloguing documents. The ideal candidate will be comfortable with opening and closing files and, under supervision, carrying out post-completion work to include preparation and submission of Stamp Duty Land Tax forms and applications to the Land Registry for registrations of transactions. 

If you feel you have the skills and experience we are looking for and would enjoy working for an expanding and forward-thinking law firm, please get in touch today.

We invite direct applications from candidates only. No agencies please.
