JOB TITLE: Corporate Solicitor
PQE REQUIRED: 1-4 years PQE
As a corporate solicitor you will be working on a busy caseload consisting of the full spectrum of corporate law work. The corporate department’s client base ranges from owner managed businesses to listed PLCs and includes companies from several different sectors. You can expect to be working on mergers and acquisitions, share transfers and private equity amongst other matters. There will also be some general commercial advisory work. You will be encouraged to carry out your own business development work and build and maintain a strong network of corporate clients.
This is an excellent opportunity for corporate solicitors with between 1 to 4 years PQE. Candidates will ideally have experience in both corporate and commercial work but we will consider candidates with experience in one of these disciplines given they can show a clear interest and understanding of corporate / commercial law. A strong academic background is a must as is the intuition to manage a busy caseload. We expect candidates to show a demonstrable flair for negotiation and commercial awareness and be apt at building strong working relationships with both clients and colleagues.
Steeped in heritage, yet fresh thinking and modern in their approach this firm is one of Yorkshire’s leading legal practices and boasts both a Legal 500 and Lexcel accreditation. As well as offering a market leading legal service, they also take corporate responsibility incredibly seriously with many of their solicitors undertaking pro bono work to support the local community both socially and economically. As an employer they strive to offer a working environment that is friendly, inclusive and supportive and one in which talented and hard working legal professionals can have the most successful career possible.
