Job Details


Our client is a boutique firm focused entirely on an interesting and high profile client sector which they service across Leeds, London and internationally - they might be compact in size but they've got a big profile. One thing that stands out about this firm is how much their personnel enjoy what they do - it is a fun and relaxed environment and that culture is something they are very committed to retaining.

They want to appoint a Solicitor at cNQ-6yrsPQE to handle a mix of Commercial work, predominantly negotiation and drafting of contracts, overhauling clients legal documentation, terms and conditions, and occasional data protection and privacy advice. Any lawyer here will be working with interesting clients on matters which are frequently of high profile and occasionally of media interest, and there will likely be some UK travel with the role.

Suitable candidates could be coming from a commercial firm or in-house legal background, the key trait is having the technical skills on mixed Commercial work. The firm will introduce you to their clients and their sector and you'll be encouraged to establish your client relationships but they're not expecting you to break new ground.

Vital for this appointment to work is that you will be enthusiastic about your career, you will enjoy client contact, and you must be keen to be part of a smaller operation for all the benefits that come with that. This firm have a genuine work-life balance - late hours are not a regular expectation. They enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, casual dress code, and make sure that staff welfare, holidays and time away from the office are high on their agenda.

This is a sociable sector with some good fun networking to be part of, and there might be scope for occasional overseas travel as well as attending clients around the UK. This firm is a market leader in its sector but if you are a candidate who wants a big brand then this is not the opportunity for you. Rather it'll appeal to someone who see's the negatives of big brands and would rather be more involved in a smaller set up.

A great opportunity for any lawyer tired of life in a larger commercial firm or in-house team, and who wants to try somewhere different, somewhere enjoyable and with realistic expectations of its staff, but who wants to be confident that expertise is still at a high level.

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.
