Corporate Sports Solicitor

An unusual job title to say the least but at its most base level, an accurate overview of things.

First and foremost this is a corporate role - M&A, Re-organisations and general corporate advice. The sports element is driven principally by the firm's particular focus in this arena. 

The background to the role may help with understanding both the needs of the firm as well as the kind of individual it might suit. The firm have a really strong reputation across commercial, regulatory and litigation aspects with a sports specific focus. In Manchester they are one of the most prolific teams across a range of sporting disciplines. 

The firm also carries a strong commercial and client centric ethic and maintains that "entrepreneurial" flare. 

Their clients include sports players, clubs and other high net worth individuals that have broader investment requirements and which fuels much more corporate than commercial activity. Currently this is outsourced but represents a foundation for growth for someone coming in.

That last part is what it is all about - they are looking for someone to develop the corporate side of the business, someone who has the desire to take ownership of that and the capacity to either bring work or confident in their capacity to develop their network.

As well as being afforded a very unique proposition from a personal development perspective it is also a chance to combine one passion (corporate) with another (sports) via a sporting centric clientele.

It is the nature of the firm that there is genuinely nothing quite like this out there. You will need to have the confidence to work independently on deals so it is likely that you will be upwards of 5 years PQE. Whether this is a senior associate, legal director or partner role is really dependant on a number of factors (not least experience) but the firm is open.

If you feel that the run of the mill corporate roles just aren't enough to excite or that everywhere else is just the same thing but with a different postcode then this role could be the one that affords something truly unique.

If you are a corporate lawyer considering the meaning of life and whether anything else could be out there, drop us a line for a confidential discussion -
