Job Details

I am working with a wonderful law firm based in the heart of Nottingham who is looking to hire at junior partner level into their Commercial team.

My client is a well-established award winning and accredited law firm, that has roots dating back 200 years.

With a plan to develop and build the Commercial side of the practice, 2021 sets to be an exciting time for the firm, who wishes to hire in this area to grow a strong team to complement their renowned Private Wealth practice.

The firm are renowned for the flexibility offered to their employees and guarantee much of the time will be working from home, but the office will remain open for those who wish to use it, but as times change due to covid, they are focused on ensuring their employees are comfortable and able to work from home.

The positions available within the firm are for those who can offer solid experience in Commercial law – providing advice to businesses of all sizes and sectors.

Specific areas:

  • Business Ts & Cs
  • Partnership and Shareholder Agreements
  • IP
  • Agency Agreements
  • JV Agreements
  • Technology
  • Franchising

The successful candidate will have the following:

  • Qualified Solicitor (UK)
  • Offering a minimum of 8 years PQE from a commercial law firm
  • Strong communication skills
  • Good academics
  • Confidence in networking, representing themselves and the firm they work for
  • Cross selling – referring contacts to colleagues in other areas of the firm
  • To be able to work autonomously

This is a hugey exciting opportunity for a lawyer who has grown tired of the large corporate law firms, who wishes to embrace a boutique law firm that prides themselves on being a truly genuine “Family Friendly” law practice.

This role will be of specific interest to a Senior Associate who has built up their experience with a firm where they may have reached a glass ceiling or where they have found the working arrangement tricky to work around family life and wish to move to a more flexible environment but want to take that next step in the career to Partner level.

Those who have grown disenchanted with their current employers will find this environment refreshing and exciting.

For more information on this opportunity or for general career advice in the strictest of confidence, please contact me, Helen Abrahams at VG CHARLES &CO on 0121 233 5009 or mail

There are literally hundreds of recruiters out there all claiming to be the best – at VG CHARLES &CO we make some fairly simple and straightforward claims. We NEVER lose sight of the fact that our candidates and clients are people and not commodities. We are in recruitment because we want to improve lives not just change them for the sake of it. We are here for the long haul and hope to be able to advise you not just over months but over years.

We are staffed by lawyers and non-lawyers alike all sharing our passion to get things right and all having gone through rigorous training and development to ensure we are always able to help and offer pragmatic and non-patronising advice. We are happy to talk even when there is absolutely no chance of a fee as we think that is the right thing to do.

We aim to give all of our candidates an edge by giving them every legitimate help that we can – to ensure that in the current competitive environment our candidates are the best prepared and researched. Having been established for nearly a decade we are proud to have staff with a wealth of experience in top end legal recruitment which helped countless candidates through the recession of the early ‘90s. All of them genuinely care about the people they represent.

This is a cross section of some of the comments we have received:

 “I have known Jane for a number of years now. She has never been pushy or simply interested in placing me in the first available job. Instead, she has focused on finding the right job for me, at the right time for me. I would recommend Jane to anyone.”

“Tony has done an excellent job throughout. He is professional, courteous and thorough.”

“Andrew was a pleasure to deal with completely professional from start to finish. He has been supportive, encouraging and did not attempt to pressure me in any way. I would not hesitate in recommending him to my colleagues and peers. Many thanks for your help!”


Whatever your reason for considering a new role, VG Charles & Co always works in your best interests to ensure that the position is the right one for you. We dedicate time to understanding what is driving you to make the move, as opposed to running through our current opportunities and hoping something sounds good.

We take a proactive view, with our clients recognising and appreciating our strategic approach, which can only be developed through understanding their practises thoroughly. Around 70% of the hires we facilitate are for roles which are not actively being advertised, but simply where the calibre of talent, synergy with firm’s strengths or where a supporting business case compels the practice to make an offer.

This is our strength, a cornerstone to our success and we’re rightly proud of it.
