This is an exceptional opportunity to join a Top 20, International law firm renowned for their innovative, cutting edge approach to technology which has set them apart from the competition. This forward-thinking attitude has seen them receive numerous industry and employer awards, in addition to being ranked Tier 1 across a broad range of practise areas in the Legal 500.

The Firm:

You will join a global, Top 20 law firm that is continually evolving and growing. The firm has a strong focus on developed and emerging markets and boasts an impressive track record in many sectors, including transport, energy, and insurance.

The firm has a uniquely innovative and forward-thinking approach, being one of the first in the UK to adopt AI and technology throughout the firm. This has streamlined processes and ensures that their lawyers perform at the highest level. This has had a positive impact on client service, which has resulted in revenue growth of 15% year on year. This growth makes them one of the fastest-growing law firms in the world, and they have no plans to slow down.

Another key area of investment for the firm has been in its people. They are well-known throughout the industry to empower, nurture, and develop legal talent, which is demonstrated by the increasing number of home-grown Partners.

This firm offers all the benefits of working for an international law firm: a top tier, multi-jurisdictional client base, interesting first class work, and an accessible network of specialist, renowned lawyers worldwide.

The team handles a broad spectrum of transactional Real Estate matters, including acquisitions & disposals, development, investment, and asset management. Their client base is equally varied and includes international landowners, property development companies, investors, and international insurance companies.

This role will give you exposure to intricate, high-value matters. You will have responsibility for your own caseload whilst working closely alongside Partners across the firm on complex and large-scale projects. The Manchester team works hand in hand with their counterparts across their offices in London and around the world.

You will be given a high level of investment and support in this role, with an outlined Partnership route for particularly ambitious lawyers. As the firm continues to grow, there will be an abundance of opportunities to take this step up. You will also find that the firm offers an unrivalled remuneration package, with a market-leading base salary and lucrative bonus scheme that sees you earn a percentage of your billings, as well as on work cross-referred to other departments.
