Edwards Duthie Solicitors

Housing Solicitors/Caseworker

Edwards Duthie is a large and long established firm with a number of offices in East London and Essex.  Named in the Legal 500, we have a diverse range of both privately and publicly funded work.  The New Year heralds an exciting period for Edwards Duthie with the opening of a new office in Wanstead and plans to relocate our East Ham office to brand new premises in Canning Town.

Our Community Law Team has expertise in housing & debt, community care and mental health.  The team has a particularly strong reputation for housing law and has brought a number of significant cases in recent years.  The team is proud to hold Housing Possession Court Duty Scheme contracts with the Legal Aid Agency at the Bow, Edmonton and Romford County Courts.

We now wish to recruit an experienced caseworker or solicitor to join our Community Law Team for a period of 12 months from March 2017 to cover the maternity leave of one of our Partners.   Successful applicants will have a sound knowledge of housing law and litigation and ideally will have experience of acting as a duty advisor under the LAA’s Housing Possession Court Duty Schemes.   Experience of Community Care law is also desirable.

We have dedicated Human Resources, IT and Facilities Teams to develop and support all our legal teams.

Salary according to experience.
