Legal Hire

A legal career with Vardags is fast-paced and extremely rewarding, working on the most challenging cases in a supportive, energetic environment where courage and imagination are prized.

Vardags welcomes applications from ambitious lawyers with a view to becoming the leading solicitors in their field—be that family, civil litigation, or criminal defence. We also hire laterally for senior roles, taking on directors who have already made their mark in these disciplines.

We value talent, commitment, drive, and the capacity to inspire and to be inspired. We hire experienced lawyers with a compelling history of dynamic success in high-value and conceptually complex cases.

We have a reputation for rewarding excellence, giving our lawyers the opportunity to rise rapidly through the ranks.

We also hire and retrain talented lawyers wishing to cross into matrimonial law from corporate and commercial backgrounds, particularly from Magic Circle law firms, including Linklaters, Slaughter & May and Allen & Overy.

As our clients are high net worth individuals and companies, many of our cases involve complex financial and corporate structures, and as such we find that lawyers from these types of professional backgrounds are particularly suited to our firm. In turn they can get stuck into varied case work, knowing that they are making a real difference to individuals and their families.

Vardags is currently hiring for a range of positions for all our offices, based in London, Manchester, Winchester, and Cambridge. We recruit on a rolling basis and welcome applications throughout the year.

Recruitment agents, please read our Agency Policy before contacting us.

Vardags is an equal opportunities employer. Positions advertised are open to applicants with the right to work in the UK.

“Having trained and qualified as a family and private client solicitor in a general practice in the West End, I was keen to move on to a specialist family law firm to refine my craft as a family lawyer and learn from the very best in the business.

I moved to Vardags in January 2013 with just over 2 years PQE and immediately hit the ground running. I had spent the majority of the previous 4 years marketing my practice and trying hard to bring in work. Within weeks of starting at Vardags I had a catalogue of high to ultra high net worth clients that I could only dream of previously.

I soon found that I was not the only one to join the gold rush! Within weeks I felt part of the furniture and one of the old hands as many more young and talented lawyers followed.

Vardags is booming against the rest of the market. I have therefore found it to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with exceptional clients and an unbeatable team”.
