National Regional offices
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 National Commercial Group is going from strength to strength and we have exciting plans for accelerated growth over the next five years.
Our bold and ambitious plan is to be recognised as the pre-eminent Commercial Practice in the UK within the next 5 years.
We’re already well on that journey, currently having an excellent team of over 70 lawyers focused on six key service lines:
* Commercial Contracts
* Technology, Media & Telecoms
* Intellectual Property
* Financial Services
* Privacy & Data
* Capital Projects & Infrastructure
We are ranked in the top tier of Legal 500 and Chambers for most of our practice areas, although our intention is to have top rankings across the board.
Our commercial practice team is enjoying an exciting period of growth. With a loyal and ever increasing client base we are looking to recruit a further technology / general commercial solicitor who will have the opportunity to develop within an exceptional and innovative team which is highly supportive on a day to day basis, and which values each individual’s career progression and provides an enjoyable team experience for everyone.
On offer is the full spectrum of high quality work - from advising on large multinational outsourcing arrangements and complex IT projects to more routine supply arrangements and distribution and agency contracts.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate first-rate commercial experience, outstanding client service, the ability to take responsibility and a track record of being involved in business development initiatives.
We will consider candidates offering private practice and/or in-house backgrounds.
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.
