Commercial Solicitor - Junior & Mid Levels
Our client is a leading Manchester based corporate commercial practice with a reputation for the quality of its work but also for its user friendly service. What does that mean? Well, put simply they work closely with clients and provide clear commercial advice - not the sit on the fence kind, the real on the ground business advice.
The commercial team supports a large corporate offering and provides exposure to a broad range of work from corporate support through to larger outsourcing and IT projects for clients. The work is good but the size of the team means there is much greater scope for growth but also to develop into a more free standing offering within the firm and the partners are committed to investing in growing the commercial department.
Currently the commercial team is headed up by a single partner with a junior lawyer but the appetite is to add additional resource at the junior end to allow more time for the partner to attract new work.
As the team is still small (but with significant wider support from the corporate team) it is really great time to join as there is lots of headroom to achieve career progression.
It will almost certainly be hands on in terms of doing the work but also in terms of access to clients and the firm has a long history of its lawyer creating their own clients and making their own business cases for partnership (often far sooner than could be achieved elsewhere).
In being honest with themselves around the level of supervision they can provide, the need someone with, at the least, a strong grasp of the basics of commercial work so ideally those with in excess of 6 months experience acting on commercial work whether that be corporate, terms and conditions, outsourcing or supply agreements.
If you are lawyer with a level of commercial work then we are keen to speak to you. Please send your CV to Paul Warburton or alternatively contact us for confidential discussion.
