Harper Macleod LLP


Solicitor for unique Shetland opportunity, Harper Macleod LLP


Are you interested in a fantastic opportunity to join our team in Shetland as we take our Lerwick-based practice to the next level?

You will be an experienced solicitor, but your most important qualification will be the qualities and skills you possess, rather than experience in a specific legal discipline.

At Harper Macleod you’ll be part of a collective effort that is never satisfied: sharing the stresses, celebrating the successes and inspiring one another to always improve. You want to deliver extraordinary results for your clients. We want to deliver extraordinary opportunities for you, and encourage you to make a difference.


Your role

Harper Macleod has a renowned legal services and estate agency practice in Shetland which carries out a wide range of work, backed up by specialist support from across the firm. You will have significant opportunities to extend our services on island and develop your career in a unique environment while playing a central role in shaping our business.

You will have an enthusiasm for business development and a desire to become an active member of the wider business community in Shetland. You will be a brand ambassador for Harper Macleod in Shetland. You will have the full support of the firm at all levels, with our resident lawyers on hand, and our colleagues who are regularly on island, all supported by the full team in Lerwick.


Let your ambitions and ours go hand in hand

Harper Macleod’s culture is the sum of the actions of the people who make up our business – it’s built around taking calculated risks and pushing for innovative solutions. You know the law, but you also know that there’s much more to being a lawyer than that.

You know that doing things the right way is always the best way – the right things for clients, colleagues and our communities. We will never compromise on this.

We also embrace flexibility – including when and where our people work.

We are a business that has been named Law Firm of the Year eight times and ranked in The Times Scotland Best Law Firms 2020. We also supported Team Shetland at the 2019 International Island Games in Gibraltar. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, an active colleague engagement & CSR programme and the opportunity to develop your career.

We believe the best is yet to come for Harper Macleod in Shetland. If this sounds like the type of firm you’d like to be part of, maybe the best is yet to come for you?
