Banking Lawyer - Leeds

Top 60 firm are looking for a banking lawyer to join their team in Leeds.

This is probably the largest banking team in the city and is continuing to grow, due to their continued success.

The team act for a number of international banks, plcs and commercial clients on £multi-million transactions, often competing against magic circle firms in London. Hence, you will be working on some of the best quality banking work outside the capital.

You will be working for a company and partner who prioritise your personal career development over chargeable hour targets, so individuals are not expected to record and report billable hours. This makes achieving targets much easier and employees aren't encouraged to stay behind after work.

To be considered for the role, you should have at least 3 years PQE. Ideally, you will have had exposure to banking work, however, the partner has hired candidates from corporate/ commercial contracts backgrounds in the past. Therefore, those with comparable experience are encouraged to apply.

An excellent opportunity for a lawyer looking to access top quality banking law without the pressures of the 'big 6' corporate firms. A work/life balance is a real opportunity at this firm.



Brooke Thornham Consulting 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.
