Job Details

This dynamic, forward-thinking, boutique law firm is a step away from the traditional private practice set up due to their innovative, cutting-edge approach to delivering legal services. The firm currently has an abundance of high-quality Corporate work; however, they are currently sending this out externally. They are looking to capitalise on this wealth of work by bringing in an experienced Corporate Lawyer to head up their Corporate team and build out their Corporate offering.

The firm:

The firm has a long-established reputation and prides themselves on the level of client service that they provide. They have invested significantly in technology, which has enabled them to stay ahead of the curve and offer a seamless service to their client base. This approach has seen them build an enviable client base of high calibre companies and HNW individuals, which has resulted in year on year growth since the firm was established.

The team may be small, but they house some of the UK's most technically strong lawyers, and you will find that they are all billing exceptionally well. They put this down to their collaborative and client-first approach, and the level of investment they make in their lawyers' development. You can expect to receive a high level of training and support to take you to the next level.

This innovative boutique firm will help you springboard your career, and you will have the opportunity to grow out a department and make it your own.

The Role:

This is a rare opportunity for a Senior Corporate Lawyer to join a well-established, profitable boutique law firm, to set up and build out their Corporate team.

You will act on behalf of a diverse and growing client base across various industry sectors. The current caseload includes M&A, restructuring and reorganisations, and shareholder agreements.

Whilst they have a significant amount of Corporate work coming in, they are looking for an ambitious, entrepreneurial individual to build their Corporate offering from the ground up. You will have a flair for business development, building strong client relationships, and be passionate about growing the Corporate team. The Partners in the firm will give you full support and backing, but you will have complete autonomy over the department; you will have the final say in key decisions that influence this exciting venture's direction and growth.

This is a truly rare opportunity to build a Corporate department at an already highly successful firm. In addition to a highly competitive salary, you can expect a market-leading bonus structure and Partnership prospects in the short term.


  • You will be a Corporate Lawyer with a minimum of 8 years' experience (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • You should have experience across all aspects of Corporate Law
  • Have a keen eye for detail
  • You will be a commercially minded individual and will thrive on building client relationships and marketing your practice
  • Ability to provide an exceptional client service
  • An existing client base would be beneficial, but not essential
