Contract type

Up and coming law firm in the East Yorkshire market requires a Corporate Defence and Regulatory Solicitor to join their growing department. This firm has grown at an impressive yet sensible rate in recent years and continues to grow further. It's an exciting time to join this firm which whilst still only a small to medium sized firm can offer work on a par with leading and long established national firms.

The Role:

To join a team of leading Corporate Defence/Regulatory Solicitors some of which have come from leading national/international firms.

The variety of the work on offer is exceptional and includes defending businesses and corporate individuals from accusations investigated by a number of regulators such as the health & safety executive, environment agency, FCA, HMRC, local authorities to name just a few. Lots of investigation work on offer.

The work can include representing a sole trader who hasn't paid their tax and is being investigated to representing a company under investigation by the police for corporate manslaughter.

Some of the work is extremely high profile.

The Candidate:

A solicitor between 1-6 years PQE with Corporate Defence and Regulatory experience would be extremely attractive to this firm, however, they are also happy to consider solicitors from a general criminal law background even of the legal aid kind who is looking for a move into a corporate crime role.

Those applying for the role without Corporate Defence and Regulatory experience MUST have a commercial edge to them. You must be the type of individual who in time (depending on level of PQE) could comfortably sit in a boardroom of directors and advise them on corporate crime matters.

Plenty of support and supervision is on offer for the successful candidate who will have an excellent career ahead of them if the hard work and commitment is put into the role.


This is a fantastic opportunity, particularly for a solicitor currently handling general criminal matters and especially those of a legal aid nature who are looking for that golden opportunity to take their career down the corporate crime route.

Onsite parking available.
