As a result of the legal market stabilising, we now have a variety of Sussex law firms who are looking to recruit senior associates / partners that are specialists in their field of expertise. Client following preferred, but not always essential if a strong track record of business development, and billing can be evidenced.

Client Details

Opportunities across Sussex - from smaller practices, with no more than 10 fee earners, to a Legal 500 firm.

Description

Key responsibilities will depend largely on your field of expertise but will generally include:

  • active business development / networking to ensure the growth and sustainability of your department
  • management of your team including support staff, training solicitors, and more junior lawyers
  • commercial awareness of your team, and team targets, to report on performance
  • participation with senior meetings, and engagement with the other senior associates / partners

Profile

The successful candidate will be looking to take on a managerial role in a Sussex firm. They'll be particularly driven by an enhanced work-life balance that a local role can bring, and may be looking to cut their London commute post-Covid.

Job Offer

Career progression and autonomy growing and sustaining your department.
