They are now ranked in the Legal 500 as a big plater in the UK across M&A, Capital Markets, Sport and Private Client work.
With a strong leadership team, their hands on Partners are supportive, but also give their teams the flexibility and space to manage their own caseloads. The firm is also encouraging of any Solicitors that want to grow and develop their skillset and being a smaller firm, there is real opportunity to climb the ranks, without the need to join a very long queue as you find with some of the larger City firms!

The team are looking to hire either, young lawyers who have Natural Resource (particularly Oil & Gas) sector experience who would like to move into Capital Markets work, or Capital Markets Lawyers who already have experience. They are a flexible, entrepreneurial team that are prepared to widen the net to find the right fit.
- 4-6 years PQE with a London based middle to large law firm
- Must be qualified in England & Wales as a Solicitor
- Strong academics, with a 2:1 or better from a leading University
- Capital Markets experience would be ideal, but the firm will also consider young lawyers with Energy sector experience that have an interest in Corporate/Capital Markets.

This is a rare opportunity with very good prospects for promotion in the future, to work for a high end specialist that offer a genuine alternative to the City heavyweights, whilst not compromising on the quality of work.
