A long established multi-office regional practice wishes to appoint a Corporate Solicitor to its well regarded Corporate & Commercial Team and be based at the firms' Dudley office.
The practice is a full service Legal 500 listed firm which has offices across the West Midlands, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and is renowned for offering the complete range of legal services to both individuals and commercial entities within its geographic reach.
Working within a small specialist team which comprises 3 partners and 3 solicitors, you will be a solicitor with anything from 1 to 5 years' PQE and will have experience of dealing with a varied portfolio of corporate matters to include dealing with mergers and acquisitions, shareholder agreements, management buy ins and buy outs and restructuring.
You will work directly alongside experienced partners who will be able to enhance your skills and expose you to more complex matters to ensure that you become a more well rounded lawyer. You will also have the opportunity to become involved in business development and marketing the department so there is massive scope for progression for someone with an appetite for growing the firm's offering.
This is not limited to being an office based role and there will be an abundance of opportunities for face to face client engagement both within and out of the office. You will also work alongside commercial and company lawyers so there is potential for collaboration as well as the opportunity to experience other areas of practice if you so wish.
Whilst the firm is very keen to promote progression, it strives to maintain a relaxed and friendly environment so this is a great opportunity for those who might feel that progression opportunities are limited in their current role, particularly as there will be significant opportunities to grow the department by undertaking a variety of business development initiatives.
The firm prides itself on promoting a positive work/life balance so you will still be able to deal with good quality matters at a firm that takes a much more pragmatic approach to caseload numbers and one where working unrealistic hours if frowned upon.
The firm is offering a very competitive salary and benefits package which includes 23 days a year holiday. In addition, the firm also closes over the Christmas and New Year so you are guaranteed to have the whole festive season off. You will also be able to take advantage of the firms' bonus scheme and have the benefit of a support team.
