Established in 2003 and specialising in the acquisition and performance improvement of underperforming businesses, our client is a FTSE100 company. With a strong track record in the successful implementation of a disciplined strategy of ‘Buy, Improve, Sell’, which has seen the company’s market capitalisation grow from £13 million since listing on the London Stock Exchange in 2003 to around £3bn today. Businesses in the portfolio benefit from substantial investment and changed management focus in order to improve performance and drive growth.

As the company continues to grow, our client is now seeking an experienced lawyer to support and deliver an excellent company secretarial and legal service to the Group and its business from its Birmingham office. With a dual reporting line to the Company Secretary and General Counsel, your remit will be as diverse as it is challenging and you will advise on all corporate and commercial issues including assisting the Company Secretary on all compliance and company secretarial matters such as the implementation and management of the company’s compliance framework and the delivery of the company’s annual and half-yearly reporting process. Given the company’s dynamic strategy, you will fulfil a key role in supporting the Group’s frequent corporate actions which include M&A, capital reorganisations and capital raising activities. In addition, you will be required to deal with the legal and commercial issues arising from the company’s property portfolio, assist in the conduct and resolution of any disputes and litigation and the management of external counsel.

This is an exciting opportunity for a lawyer with a strong corporate/commercial background with at least 3 years’ PQE gained either in-house or from a City, regional or West End firm. Our client is looking for a bright, talented and commercially driven lawyer who is looking to take the next step in their career to join a small team, assume significant responsibility and to work closely with the business in a challenging and dynamic environment which will be both demanding and rewarding. Due to the nature of the business, some national and international travel will be required, sometimes at short notice.
