Our client is a respected mid-tier firm which serves a range of SME/OMB clients and large regional businesses including some with international interests. To join a reasonably sized team, they are interested to recruit an additional Solicitor at c5yrsPQE+ level to be part of their Company Commercial Department. The level of PQE reflects their need for someone able to pick up work from the start rather than needing intense support day to day.

This department handles both transactional and non-transactional work and so there is scope for a candidate to specialise in one direction over the other, or to handle a mix if they prefer in due course. The corporate work of the department includes mergers and acquisitions, MBO's, share sales, company restructurings, joint ventures, franchising and asset sales, and this is where the pressure of work is primarily from at present.

Being Legal 500 rated this firm occupies a strong position in its local market place and is easily accessible from both Leeds and Manchester. This position will appeal to candidates from regional or national firms who want some work-life balance and client contact, and anyone with links to Kirklees and Calderdale will be particularly attractive as the firm hopes for a candidate who'll want to build their own links in the locality for the long term.

Partner level candidates (10+PQE) will be considered on merit as the firm could craft a business case for that level of appointment, but they would need to be sure of a candidates commitment to being Huddersfield based, and to their having 'added vaue' by way of client contacts and following.

A great mid-tier opportunity for a Corporate lawyer wanting an enjoyable role with a very reasonable practice.

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.

Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
