Corporate & Commercial Solicitor - Exceptional Salary & Balanced Hours

Surely you've been in the position of wondering why you are still stuck in the office working on a deal when all else around you seem to have finished for the day. Was the 2am completion truly necessary? How can I plan my life when I am beholden to a transaction?

You like the challenge and the thrust of a deal - the complexity and size and scale keep you coming back but in the back of your mind maybe you wonder whether it is worth it - is there a better option out there?

As ever its a deeply personal question. It really depends on where you place the value.

There is certainly an alternative but invariable there are compromises that come with that. What are they? Well, in essence you are taking a step away from the top level deal side - by that I mean you will be working on a discrete element of the transaction - namely DD. The deals themselves will be top level often multi-jurisdictional multi-billion pound deals. Certainly not to be sniffed at and not for the faint hearted.

That's the central compromise but the off-set is a top line salary that exceeds even the largest of the corporate teams in Manchester with a commensurate benefits package. Flexibility, agility and all the technology at your fingers tips alongside regular and detailed training will allow to be efficient. The last part will be incredibly helpful as your working hours will also be fixed. With exception of being on call once a month - that will be it. No late nights and no all-nighters.

In terms of what the firm is looking for - all levels and all commercial experience. Whether that be experience gained in corporate, commercial, real estate or banking and finance - if you have exposure to a good level of quality in those disciplines then we are interested in speaking with you.

A lot of people have dismissed the idea without having a true sense of the work, the people and the scope for progression and yet it rarely fails to gain approval when you have the chance to talk about what it is. That doesn't mean it is for everyone but if you are somewhere on the fence then get in contact. Maybe it isn't for you but you just never know.

If you are considering your next move and wider options. Contact us for a confidential discussion.
