This organisation is a major global brand. With huge investment into the legal team and planned growth in Manchester, they are now looking to appoint a corporate associate. You will join a dynamic legal team and play a key role in the shape and growth of the team for the future.
This legal team has the benefit of a fantastic brand. Led by heavyweight partners with exceptional track records in their markets, this is a rare opportunity to take on a diverse role as a corporate lawyer - not only will you be handling complex transactions, you will be speaking to large PLC clients advising on business strategy and assisting with commercial decisions. The team is already handling substantial M&A deals, and with a sizable pipeline they are incredibly confident about future growth. The difference with this opportunity is the breadth of role available, instead of bouncing from deal to deal you will take on much more of an advisory role whilst still retaining your corporate background and expertise.
If you are frustrated at working in a very large team with a lack of direction or career progression, this is a rare opportunity to not only diversify your skill-set but join a team where you can see your career develop. This is a small team with big ambitions, and are looking for stars of the future. Given the quality and size of anticipated transactions and clients you will be advising, you will need to have a strong corporate background, having ideally handled M&A work from within a national law firm previously. However, candidates from smaller firms will also be considered. You will have a strong technical ability, but just as importantly it is key you are confident dealing with clients and eager to take on a broader role.
This is an exceptional opportunity with a market leading remuneration package to match. The lead partners are keen to enter into a discussion with interested candidates, even on an informal basis.
