Push your career forward in a market-leading, international law firm in Manchester. You will be supported to take your career to the next level, through award-winning training & development (both soft skills & technical) and mentoring from renowned Partners.

The Firm:

You will join a global, Top 20 law firm consistently recognised for its innovative and forward-thinking approach. The firm has a strong focus on developed and emerging markets and boasts an impressive track record in many sectors, including transport, energy, and finance.

The Role:

This nationally recognised Commercial team is growing at Associate and Senior Associate levels in Manchester.

The Commercial team acts for a broad client base across sectors such as technology, retail/e-commerce, and financial services. You can expect to gain exposure to truly high-quality work, including commercial contracts and IT, with the opportunity to get involved in IP and data protection - the opportunity moulds around the individual, with the flexibility to specialise in areas of work and sectors of interest.

The team is seen as a valued extension to their clients' in-house teams, meaning you will play a vital role in their growth, brands and journey.

As you carve out a path to partnership in this growing team, you will receive 1:1 support from Partners to develop your technical, commercial and leadership abilities, whilst building a business case from day one.

This opportunity comes with realistic and transparent partnership prospects, an attractive remuneration package, and plenty of flexibility.


  • As a guide, this role would suit a Commercial Lawyer with 2+ years PQE
  • Experience across a broad range of commercial contracts is essential
  • IP and data protection experience would be advantageous, but not essential
  • Experience gained with a large regional or city law firm, or comparable in-house legal team
