Solicitor – Corporate & Commercial Department

I am currently recruiting for a Solicitor to join my clients the Corporate & Commercial department. The Corporate & Commercial team is made up of 1 Partner, 4 Solicitors and 3 Secretaries. They are now looking to add another Solicitor to this extremely busy department. The ideal candidate will need to be happy with M&A’s up to the value of £10M (as part of a team). Some deals are much higher than this, £100M+, but these are more rare.

My client has seen a lot of change over the past few years and is now a forward-thinking dynamic and proactive legal firm. They welcome new initiatives and ideas and have recently brought in a Marketing Manager & assistant to help push the company’s presence forward. There is also a focus on business development, both existing and new to make sure that the firm is constantly moving forwards.
