Solicitors are the backbone of the legal profession. There are countless different aspects of the law a solicitor can practice and specialise in throughout their career.

As specialists in the legal sector, Heat recruitment are perfectly placed to find solicitors within every discipline.

Legal Executives

Similar to a solicitor, Legal executives require excellent interpersonal skills, and a deep technical understanding of their chosen discipline.
