Corporate solicitor

We are currently assisting a very strong corporate team with the recruitment of a senior corporate solicitor into their Manchester based team. The role will suit an experienced solicitor who is seeking to join a very successful and well run practice.

They are widely regarded as a leading regional firm dealing with excellent quality work and there is a need to expand the team with the addition of a solid, senior level corporate solicitor. They are looking for someone who is technically strong and is capable of being a steady pair of hands and taking some of the legal work off the partners. They currently have more work "than they know what to do with," so they are very much looking for someone they can trust to do a very good job.

The team have an excellent track record of advising entrepreneurs, private limited companies, small and mid cap plcs, management teams, professional partnerships, debt providers and equity investors on transactional, project-based and advisory corporate work, both in the UK and overseas, consistently topping deal volume tables.

The average deal value is probably ?2m to ?5m, as they have a large volume of deals that are dealt with by the junior team, which pulls the average down. The lead partners generally work in the mid-market, where average deals are probably around the ?8m-?10m mark, with 4-5 larger deals per year. They are currently instructed on 3 deals larger than ?20m so the ideal applicant would be able to supervise the junior team on smaller deals and work with the Partners on the larger ones.

They have a number of very notable clients that are all very large privately-owned corporates working with management teams rather than institutional investors or banks, so the work is very much orientated towards advising trading businesses on day-to-day trading and major strategic events rather than PE work, Bank review work or capital markets.

They are able to pay a very competitive salary, offer a very achievable bonus scheme as well as a great work-life balance, with a degree of flexibility that you would not get at other regional or national firms going hand-in-hand with their reputation for looking after their staff. There is absolutely no requirement to bring a client following due to the strong and growing client base.
