Corporate Solicitor

This organisation is a major UK and global brand. With the development of a new corporate legal team in Manchester and further expansion on the agenda, they are now looking for a mid level corporate lawyer to complete the team.

This corporate legal team has the benefit of a fantastic national brand and a loyal client base providing excellent quality work from substantial share and corporate re-organisations to mainstream M&A. As a solicitor in the team you will work with a partner with an excellent reputation in the market, and two senior lawyers with heavyweight M&A backgrounds in private practice, handling complex corporate legal matters. You will play a key role in the team, advising large corporate clients and providing commercial legal advice to management teams and senior director level figures.

This is a small team, which will mean the role will be hands on but hugely varied offering real potential for an ambitious corporate solicitor to push their expertise and progress quickly. Given the quality and size of anticipated transactions, you will need to have a strong corporate background, having ideally handled M&A work from within a national law firm previously. Whilst mainstream M&A will have ideally formed the focus of your experience, additional experience of private equity, reorganisations and capital markets work would be advantageous but not essential. You will have a strong technical ability and most likely will have trained at a leading national, international or regional firm.

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 join a corporate team in-house offering a difference in terms of culture and a unique platform to enhance your career. The national team is investing hugely in Manchester and with further planned growth this is a very exciting time to join. A competitive salary and benefits package is available to the right candidate.

Please only apply for this opportunity if you have the requisite skills and experience. If you would like any further information please contact BCL Legal.
