Job Details

Our client is a professionally managed, profitable and forward thinking practice.  It is a full service law firm serving the local business community as well as private individuals.  

The commercial team is well established in the area as the go-to legal team for all business law requirements.  It enjoys great relationships with a large number of local and regional businesses giving rise to an interesting and varied range of instructions.  

To respond to increased demands and new client wins, coupled with strategic plans for further expansion, new opportunities have arisen within the team.  

Lawyers in the department have previously enjoyed managing a combined caseload of company/commercial and property matters. That opportunity to maintain a diverse caseload continues.  Likewise, if interested lawyers would prefer to focus on company/commercial or property, such preferences can be accommodated.  What is most important, is the shared values of working collaboratively and enjoying providing a tailored service to the local and regional business community. 

The team's target market is a diverse mix of SME and OMB clients across manufacturing, logistics, building and construction, new technology, retail, leisure, professional and financial sectors. The turnover of these clients varies from between £250,000 to £5+ million and employees between 5 and 250.  

Typical instructions serviced by the department include: 

•    Business start-ups, incorporation, partnership & LLPs
•    Corporate Transactions, Mergers and Acquisitions
•    Planning family business changes/succession: shareholding and directorship
•    MBOs and MBIs  
•    Drafting Terms of Business and all types of Commercial Contracts
•    Advising on trading risk, limitation of liability and loss
•    Banking, Security and Finance issues 

There are unrivalled prospects with this independently owned and profitable law firm. It's a friendly and supportive place to work with a partnership which continually invests on training and resources. The offices are centrally located, a modernised heritage building in this thriving market town.  Location and flexibility means the firm is easily commutable (including public transport links) from Greater Manchester, North Cheshire and South Lancashire. 

You will have the opportunity to join a thriving practice, be an integral part of a cohesive team and contribute to all aspects of team growth and client management. 

** Please note that references to post qualification experience (PQE) are given as a guideline to the competences required for technical, client and case management skills. We encourage you to apply for any job for which you feel you are a suitable candidate.
