Full time
Contract type

Our client is a thriving mid-tier Leeds firm with an impressive growth record in the last couple of years and which enjoys good profile in Leeds.

Already possessing a strong Corporate team the firm is presently looking for a key appointment of a junior NQ Corporate Solicitor to work directly in support of partners. Consequently your workload will be varied and will span a range of client sectors, but you will benefit from learning from a number of more experienced practitioners. For a relatively junior corporate lawyer this represents a uniquely stimulating and challenging opportunity if you are wanting plenty of client contact.

The firm contains a good number of lawyers who've been with national firms, so candidates looking to move away from the pressures of PLC work and into more of an SME/OMB client base should be interested. Remuneration will be competitive to attract candidates from reputable firms. They look for a minimum 2:1, and ideally experience acting for quality clients in a well respected team. Minimum 6 months Corporate exposure as a Trainee is not essential as this is a role where the firm will fully re-train a candidate who has no UK corporate transactional experience.

Given the level of the position the firm is quite prepared to consider relocating candidates who meet the description above, so candidates who've been practicing elsewhere in the UK (including in London) will be of interest if they have a demonstrable connection to Leeds.

In our experience candidates who meet the firm come away impressed by the quality of the offering and also with the collective management dynamism and collegiate mentality which together have allowed this firm to recover from the recession significantly quicker than some of its competitors. A great choice for a Corporate lawyer from a big firm who wants to be in a mid-tier environment.
Florit Brooke advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
