Excellent opportunity for commercially minded Corporate Lawyers
About the role
We’re looking to recruit an ambitious Corporate Lawyer to join our highly successful team. The company commercial department consists of Commercial, Corporate, Finance, Intellectual Property, Public Sector and Tax. Solicitors are able to rotate between specialisms, ensuring they work with all partners and associates on a variety of deals. Our team has a wealth of experience and ambition, with our pure Corporate team currently consisting of 5 partners and 13 solicitors.
In addition to an impressive client list and high quality work, our solicitors have early responsibility for their own clients and deals, safe in the knowledge that support is there if needed. We offer excellent training programmes, through a combination of weekly in-house training sessions and structured programmes delivered through external providers.
