Are you a Company/Commercial Lawyer looking for a real hands-on client facing role with genuine partnership prospects and an existing caseload of work waiting for you? This opportunity will certainly tick all those boxes!
My client is a well-established regional law firm which has always had a strong reputation for its advice in Corporate and Commercial law. With a strong portfolio of clients in its local area and beyond, the firm is growing and has a plan to sustain this growth.
With a strong batch of younger partners coming through, this firm is well set up and financially strong and the missing piece of the jigsaw is the recruitment of an ambitious and entrepreneurial Company Commercial lawyer to share in this success. Due to succession and other strategic plans, there is the opportunity to take on a caseload of good quality corporate and commercial work with clients who are looking for a trusted advisor, almost an in-house lawyer.
The role would suit a solicitor with at least three years post qualification looking for a role where they can have more exposure to clients’ businesses, using their commercial flair rather than just their technical legal skills.
You may be at a larger national firm and be looking to have more involvement with your clients as well as playing a pivotal role in growing your team/firm. Or equally you may be finding that your path to partnership is taking longer than you thought.
This role can offer genuine partnership prospects in the short term and may even for the right person, recruit straight in at salaried partner from day one.
There is a very competitive salary package on offer as well as an attractive range of benefits including hybrid working and free parking.
For more information on this exceptional opportunity or for general career advice in the strictest of confidence, please contact me, Jane Marshall at VG CHARLES &CO.
