Job Details

Join a prestigious, internationally recognised Corporate team at this leading Top 20 law firm. You will find an extremely high level of work, dealing with some of the largest corporations in the world, right the way through to exciting start-ups.

If you are a Corporate Partner who is looking for a firm where you can have a real influence over key decisions, have the prospect of equity, and earn a lucrative remuneration package, whilst retaining a high quality of work, then read on.

The Firm:

With offices throughout every major UK City, and internationally, the firm is Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms. They have been repeatedly recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge. This Top 20 law firm boasts over 400 Partners, many of whom are homegrown and have established stellar individual reputations that give them and the firm real gravitas.

The firm has made significant investment throughout 2020, with the Manchester office being a key area of focus for the firm. This is evidenced by the investment they have made into the latest technology, continuously improving the office space, and the number of strategic heavyweight hires made in the last 12 months alone. They have a strong appetite for growth, and 2021 will be no different.

Investment in technology has always been an important part of who the firm is. They are constantly looking to remain ahead of the curve, provide a seamless client experience, and take away the monotonous administrative duties that will free up time to focus on what you do best; deliver top quality client service, build relationships, and generate revenue.

The client base reflects the firm's calibre, reputation, and expert knowledge. You will be representing international clients, household FTSE 250 names, and public sector bodies, making for a challenging, yet interesting and rewarding caseload.

What truly sets this firm apart is their culture. You may expect a firm of this size to have a stuffy, corporate environment, but that couldn't be further from reality. You will find a close-knit, collaborative team that will welcome you with open arms from day one, and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate and build strong relationships with the wider team. This makes for an enjoyable and stimulating work environment, allowing the firm to enjoy an unrivalled employee retention rate. You will also find that the firm nurtures and develops legal talent; the growing number of home-grown partners well demonstrates this.

The Role:

The firm is now looking for a commercially astute, entrepreneurial Partner to bolster their highly regarded, Legal 500 Corporate team, in the firm's recently renovated Manchester office.

The Corporate department deals with a broad client base from some of the world's largest corporations, to exciting start-ups. You will find that the work is international in scope, and the team regularly handle large-scale, multi-jurisdictional projects.

Your caseload will include mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, takeovers, private equity, venture capital, reorganisation, and corporate governance.

Their global Corporate team is vast and houses some of the world's most renowned Corporate lawyers. Their level of expertise and reputation cannot be overstated. You will be working side on side with respected Partners in their Manchester office, and you can expect a high level of exposure to some of the most interest and complex Corporate transactions that are happening in the world. You will have a high level of responsibility for your team's direction and growth, a level of autonomy unheard of at a firm of this size.


  • You will be a Corporate Partner with a minimum of 10 years' experience (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • You should have experience in mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, takeovers, private equity, venture capital, reorganisation, and corporate governance.
  • Experience handling complex, multi-jurisdictional Corporate matters
  • Have a keen eye for detail
  • You will be a commercially minded individual and will thrive on building client relationships and marketing your practice
  • Able to motivate and lead a team
