Corporate & Commercial Solicitor - Cambridge

2 years PQE upwards.

Excellent quality work and the chance to be a key figure in the growth of the corporate & Commercial department within one of Cambridgeshires leading commercial firms.

The successful candidate will be joining a Corporate & Commercial team dealing with matters including mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, shareholder agreements and a broad range of commercial contracts. The firm works on behalf of a varied range of clients including PLCs, listed companies, owner managed business and start up companies across a broad range of sectors including tech, bio, media, construction and engineering.

You will be working alongside a partner based in Cambridge and will be instrumental in the growth of the Corporate & Commercial department in this office. As well as the fee earning side of things you will be encouraged and have the opportunity to get involved in the networking and business development activities of the department and the firm. You will have lots of direct client contact and the chance to develop a name for yourself in the market and establish yourself as a leading Cambridgeshire commercial lawyer. Due to the size of the team you will be an integral part of the team right from day 1 and have real influence on the future of the team and the office, rather than just being one of a number of lawyers in a larger team.

The firm looks to reward their staff for their work and will offer a good salary and excellent benefits package including a very generous pension scheme (up to 5%) and bonus scheme (up to 10% of salary) and much more as part of a good overall package.

The culture of the firm is one whereby high standards are expected in order to maintain their reputation but they also promote a healthy work life balance. Excessively long hours are not the norm within the firm which is a far cry from many other corporate teams at larger commercial firms.

Genuine progression opportunities will be available within a firm that looks to offer a structured career path and who take their responsibility to staff development seriously. Having placed people within roles at this firm previously i have seen first hand the progression opportunities and opportunities available to lawyers within the firm and it is a firm lawyers can reach their potential and fulfill their career ambitions
