Corporate Solicitor - In-House
This is a rare and new opportunity for a transactional solicitor to join the corporate legal team of a major UK and international brand. If you are at the 1-4 PQE level and looking for excellent quality transactional work but outside the politics and confines of private practice, this is is a unique role to consider.
This legal team has the benefit of a fantastic brand and a loyal client base providing excellent quality work, including mainstream corporate M&A, restructuring and finance work. As a solicitor in the team you will work in a team with an excellent reputation in the market, handling a huge breadth of transactional legal matters - particularly corporate M&A and restructuring. You will play a key role in the team, advising large corporate clients and providing commercial legal advice to management teams and senior director level figures.
This is a small team, which will mean the role will be hands on but hugely varied offering real potential for an ambitious solicitor to push their expertise and progress quickly. Given the quality and size of anticipated transactions, you will have ideally handled M&A work from within a national law firm previously, but individuals from a restructuring or finance background looking for greater breadth in their role will also be considered. You will have a strong technical ability and have the ability to be versatile and work with high profile global clients.
If you are frustrated at working in a large team with a lack of direction or career progression, this is a rare opportunity to join a team in-house offering a difference in terms of culture and a unique platform to enhance your career. The national team is investing in Manchester and with further planned growth this is a very exciting time to join. A competitive salary and benefits package is available to the right candidate.
