Reporting to one of our Lawyer Team Managers you will provide a professional and prompt legal service to our members over the telephone.

The calls we receive are very diverse from a tenant who is unhappy with his landlord to providing advice to a member on a rogue trader no two days are the same.

  • Providing expert legal advice to customers based on a thorough understanding of relevant law.
  • Researching & responding to legal problems referred on the telephone or by email to W?L (and undertake case work if and when appropriate).
