Description

"Great quality in specialist areas..., which is hard to find
outside London" – Chambers UK

We are looking for a Senior Associate to join our highly regarded
Corporate team in the Thames Valley. This is a fantastic opportunity
to join a well-respected and expanding team with the prospect of a
varied and complex workload. You will have the opportunity to work on
both national and international deals whilst also becoming involved in
some of the region's most significant transactions.

The practice

Osborne Clarke’s corporate team is known as the leading firm in the
region, with a reputation that leads to us being instructed on the
most significant transactions. Providing City-quality, we are the only
firm in the Thames Valley covering each specialist area (Venture
Capital, Private Equity, M&A/corporate and Corporate Finance for
plcs) in depth. Our leading position is reflected in our work levels.

We act for a number of leading companies and deal doers in the Thames
Valley (for example: LDC, Conduent, Davies Group, Bridges, BGF,
Intersurgical and Xeretec). We have developed key sector-focuses, in
which areas we have achieved a nationwide reputation. These include
TMC, Financial Services and Real Estate & Infrastructure.

The team in Reading is fully integrated into a UK-wide network,
including a rapidly expanding London office, and a fast-growing
international network.


The team

"As lawyers I find them straightforward, pragmatic and
enjoyable to work with" – Chambers UK

The team is led by Sara Valentine, Partner, and also comprises of 3
further Partners, 3 Associate Directors, 1 Senior Associate, 4
Associates and 2 Trainee Solicitors. The team also works closely with
the Corporate teams in Osborne Clarke LLP's Bristol and London
offices, meaning that the department is made up of 70 lawyers overall.

The work

* Advised LDC, part of Lloyds Banking Group, on an £11 million
investment in James and James Fulfilment. The investment will be
used to further enhance its market-leading, software-enabled
e-fulfilment proposition.

* We advised Windsor Telecom on its refinancing with Thincats, and
simultaneous acquisition of Keen IT and Keen VoIP.

* Acted for Thames Valley based Xeretec Group Limited on a sale of
shares by the majority shareholders in Xeretec Group Limited to a
new management team shareholder.

* Advised Davies Group on the acquisition of law firm Keoghs. This
is one of the largest M&A transactions involving a law firm,
since the Legal Services Act 2017 permitted non-lawyers to own and
manage law firms.

* Advised Whitehelm Capital, one of the world’s largest independent
infrastructure managers, on its initial £80 million investment into
Smart City operator Connexin.

* Acted for Faac S.p.A on the acquisition of the UK Auto Pedestrian
Doors and Assa Abloy Entrance Systems business.

* We acted for the shareholders of Moortec Semiconductor Limited in
the sale of the company to Synopsys, Inc. (a US entity) following a
bid process to sell the business during the summer (OC supported in
preparing the Company at this stage).

* Advised Highland Europe on (1) its investment in Farewill, the
UK's largest will writing tech start-up; and (2) its investment in
Modulr, a payments as a service platform for digital business.

* Advising on-demand merchandise platform Moteefe on their $11m
Series C funding round.

* Advised Focus Group, a leading UK provider of communications and
IT solutions, and its shareholders and management team, on the sale
of a significant minority stake to Bowmark, the mid-market private
equity firm and the simultaneous refinancing by Blackrock.

Technical skills and experience

As a guide, due to the nature of the work and the structure of the
team, we are looking to appoint a Senior Associate lawyer, although we
will consider candidates with more or less experience. You will have
trained with a highly respected law firm, preferably a city or
national law firm and have a very strong academic background.

Your career development

Like all our lawyers, you will benefit from our multi-award winning
career development programme. At each stage of your career this
provides you with:

* clear expectations of your role and what it takes to progress;

* high quality clients and work, with early responsibility and
client exposure;

* thorough assessment and individual feedback from a range of
experienced colleagues;

* robust technical training with early skills based development,
increasingly tailored to you; and

* reward for your contribution, progression and potential, rather
than PQE or tenure.

Salary and benefits

We offer competitive salaries and generous benefits.

recognising that our people have lives and commitments outside of
work. We have invested in connected working for our people and,
where possible, we will accommodate flexible working for all our roles.
