The expertise and breadth of experience of Tanfield's Private Client Group complements Tanfield's reputation as a leading property set. The group's work encompasses matrimonial finance, trusts of land, inheritance, probate, trusts, Court of Protection and private children work.

Applications are invited for a third-six pupillage from intellectually able applicants, preferably with a first or upper second-class degree.

Pallant Chambers is looking for a Third 6 pupil to join its Civil (chancery) team, with a view to becoming a long-term part of our development for the future. 

Chambers offers the chance to maintain and develop a successful practice while living in the beautiful surroundings of a Cathedral city and the West Sussex countryside.  Chambers is consistently top ranked in the South-Eastern section of the Legal 500, with 17 individual nominations for its barristers in the last edition; we pride ourselves on providing high quality specialist advice and advocacy, and look to recruit like-minded individuals to continue to take Chambers forward.

The successful candidate will be carefully supported by his or her own pupil supervisor and be given the chance to learn from other senior and junior members of the team, but will also be able to develop his or her own practice.  We are particularly interested in pupils wishing to specialise in property, commercial and/or inheritance disputes, though pupils should naturally expect to be exposed to a range of different cases as they begin their career.

Applications should be made by CV and covering letter to the senior clerk, Alister Williams
