Job Details

Internationally recognisable brand with established and integral In-house legal team requires a senior commercial solicitor to complement the agile department, working on a hybrid basis with 2 days per week in their Leicester base.

You'll be expected to provide legal support to the business & assess legal risks in perspective with the economic environment and the business, as well as advise on commercial and consumer contracts for the group.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in commercial law, notable contract drafting skills and is likely to be working as a solicitor at either a recognised private practice or good In-house team.

The position will suit someone who will thrive in an autonomous environment and an outside scope of property, IP and M & A experience would be advantageous.

We'd imagine this suiting a commercial lawyer with at least 5 years PQE and the successful candidate can expect a salary of £70-75k and an attractive benefits package.

Sacco Mann are specialist Legal Recruiters recognised as regional experts with a genuine interest in, as well as knowledge of, their marketplace. We are renowned for giving clear and straightforward career advice and true quality of service.

We have thirteen experienced consultants focussing on legal recruitment, encompassing the Commercial, General Practice, Public Sector and In House positions, both permanent and locum. In addition two consultants specialise within the Patents and Trademarks sector.

We feel that much of our success has been due to the fact that we:

- try to accurately guage and understand what both candidates and clients require and indeed that which they are able to offer and then bring the two together
- have a demonstrable knowledge of the marketplace. Fundamentally what you need is not merely someone who can post your CV to a practice, but someone whose strength of contacts within the firms can add value, ensuring that you are given proper consideration
- discuss each role with you thoroughly and get prior clearance before a CV is submitted. This is an extremely important for protecting confidentiality and avoiding duplication
- brief you fully prior to any interviews, ensuring that you know what the role entails and how the interview will be run. We also give you honest interview feedback - if you don't do very well in an interview you can always learn from the experience
- are accessible and return your calls

Why use Sacco Mann?

Principally because we believe that the points outlined above are fundamental. We enjoy recruitment, and we are good at it, because we genuinely enjoy assisting people make positive career moves. We don't shuffle paper because we know our marketplace and are therefore in a position to give reliable, knowledgeable and practical advice.

The vast majority of our applicants and clients are at pains to thank us for the advice and service that we provide and we believe the high level of referral business is a direct result of the fact that lawyers value our input.
