    Private client solicitors are people who deal with wills, probate and other matters eg powers of attorney, it's just a description of the department and the type of work they do.

    Thank you. Just thought it was a fancy name for a solicitor. Had not heard of that before.

    Its the opposite of a "Corporate Client", i.e. a client that is a business.
    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    No, it's a word which describes the kind of clients the solicitor usually works with.

    Which matters, because you do not want a corporate solicitor, who specialises in company law, acting for you in a divorce; or a solicitor who usually deals with private clients reading a contract relating to your company.
