About the Role

Through organic growth and mergers, Royds Withy King is an established law firm in the Oxfordshire region.

 

Key areas of work for the firm’s Oxford Corporate team include a variety of complex mid-market M&A and private equity transactions (with deal values between £3m to £30m), early stage equity investments together with a full range of general corporate work including shareholder agreements, joint ventures and reorganisations.

 

The team is known for its experience advising academics, entrepreneurs, founders and management teams and is rapidly becoming a key player in the Thames Valley market since Iain Butler, who is head of the Oxford Corporate team, joined the firm in 2018. Clients range from start-ups to large established corporations. We also have particular expertise supporting businesses in the technology and life sciences sectors.

 

We are looking to recruit a corporate lawyer to join this small but ambitious team, working for clients in both Oxford and across the wider Thames Valley.

 

There is also opportunity to work closely with colleagues in our wider Corporate team along the M4 corridor from London to Bristol on a full range of corporate work and for the successful applicant to build and develop their own career as the team continues to expand and grow.
