We are looking for the right individual to join our Corporate & Commercial team. You will be playing a key role of the development of the department and dealing with a broad mix of work including mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, shareholders' agreements, LLP and partnership matters and commercial contracts including sale of goods and services, IT and IP, and data protection.  The department also provides insolvency services included sales and purchases from administrators and liquidators.  It is essential that you are a confident networker as well as technically excellent and that you enjoy supervising and developing more junior members of the team.
