Corporate Solicitor - Strong Regional Practice

A very strong Legal 500 listed regional practice is continuing to enjoy exceptional growth and so is keen to add a Corporate Solicitor to its well known Corporate Team.

This full service commercial practice has been established for nearly half a decade and is based in South Staffordshire meaning that it is within easy commuting distance from Birmingham, Coventry, Lichfield and Burton upon Trent.

The members of the Corporate Team are specialists in dealing with the full remit of corporate and commercial matters and they currently act for a host of longstanding clients on both a regional and national basis. Due to the firm further increasing its market share, the team is looking to appoint a Corporate Solicitor from NQ level up to around 5 years' PQE. If an NQ, you will have undertaken a seat within corporate, ideally, have gained pre-qualification corporate law experience as a paralegal.

Broadly speaking, you will provide advice to SMEs on a broad range of commercial and corporate matters, deal with mergers and acquisitions and advise upon structures, restructures and re-organisations whilst also working very closely with lawyers focusing on a clients' wider commercial needs.

What makes this role different is the significant amount of face to face client contact you will have, particularly compared to a number of national firms where client contact is limited until a senior position is reached. You will have regular off-site client meetings whilst also be afforded the chance to undertake a host of business development activities which will enable you to form your own client base and really expedite career progression.

The firm is offering a very competitive salary and benefits package, on-site parking and, if you are at the upper PQE limit for the role, you will be afforded a lot of autonomy so this is the perfect opportunity for someone who wishes to specialise in the corporate sector and have a very varied role in a working environment that is very different to those on offer in Birmingham city centre.
