Counterculture Partnership LLP (Counterculture) is an independent multi-disciplinary law firm working with third sector, cultural, creative people and organisations. We provide practical help through strategy, finance, legal and specialist consultancy services. As well as our legal services, our work ranges from strategic planning to funding, financial and project management, governance and advocacy, operations, training, IT, and HR.
We are a rapidly growing organisation with offices in London and Manchester. The company is made up of 24 Partners supported by a General Manager, Administration Assistant and a Finance Manager, and with a number of consulting staff and expert associates who support us and deliver client projects. Our legal team consists of seven solicitors and two trainees. We each have an area of specialist knowledge. Examples include charity finance, strategic and business planning, arts policy and management.
We are seeking people who are passionate about using their legal expertise to help individuals and organisations in the cultural, educational and creative sectors. The ideal candidate will have experience in a law specialism relevant to our clients, and a good general understanding of the kinds of legal issues that not for profit organisations are likely to face. That might mean you handle employment tribunal work for regional charities; prepare an employee handbook for a national social enterprise, or advise on a settlement agreement for public sector organisations.
