The Executive Solicitor is assigned to a team of solicitors allocated to a specific body of work under the management of the Acting Law Agent. Each Executive Solicitor is responsible for the conduct and management of the legal files allocated to them. Responsibilities include securing instructions, advising client departments on legal issues arising, instructing counsel, conducting legal proceedings and managing legal transactions. Duties also include participation in team meetings, routine administration of allocated legal files and compliance with office policies and procedures and other such duties as may be assigned from time to time. The Executive Solicitor will also assist client departments with developing policies and procedures to ensure that they are legally robust. It is expected that Executive Solicitors will work on their own initiative, proactively progress and manage their files, and deliver results and value for money to the Council in the delivery of legal services.
