Solent, Milton Keynes, London
A leading UK law firm with a network of offices from the South Coast to Scotland, working together as one national team. An innovative practice and the first top 100 law firm to achieve “Gold Standard” Investors in People, our values and culture are not just words on our website but are the heartbeat of the firm. The lack of barriers between departments, a real lack of hierarchy, zero tolerance for arrogance and pomposity makes Shoosmiths a fantastic place to work.
Our award winning national Corporate team, which in 2016 topped the Experian MarketIQ (Corpfin) UK & Ireland M&A league table as the UK’s leading legal adviser by deal volume, is led by a team of partners widely regarded as leaders in their field and who are regularly recommended by clients for their reputation, personalities and outstanding expertise.
We advise companies, management teams, investors and debt providers through the business life cycle, from start-up and first round finance through M&A, management transactions, venture and development funding, restructuring, capital reductions, private equity funding and exits.
With an increasing network of clients our South corporate team is looking to appoint additional associates. This is an ideal platform for ambitious corporate lawyers to be involved in complex and often high-profile matters. The team deals with a broad range of transactions covering all aspects of corporate finance including M&A, joint ventures, re-organisations, venture capital, private equity and capital markets.
To be up for the challenge you will have an enthusiastic “can-do” attitude, a good grounding in quality corporate transactional work and be keen to be involved in business development. The successful candidate will be looking for that next step in their career progression and be eager to make their mark in a friendly, collegiate and award winning team.
Shoosmiths is a committed Equal Opportunities employer promoting equality of opportunity. This means that everyone who either applies to or works for the firm is treated equally, whatever their gender, age, ethnic origin, nationality, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
