Description

Corporate solicitor

This is a unique role for a Corporate solicitor to join an award winning, regional firm to deal with some of the best quality work in the market.

We are assisting a very strong corporate team with the recruitment of a senior corporate solicitor into their Manchester team. They are looking for an experienced solicitor who is keen to focus on "doing" the work. There is absolutely no requirement to bring a client following due to the strong and growing client base, so it would suit someone who is looking to take a step back from BD responsibilities.

They are looking for a technically strong candidate who is capable of being a steady pair of hands. The partners will be handing over some good value deals from the outset, which you will be leading their junior associates on. The department has plenty of work, with a growing number of instructions and they need someone they can trust to do the job.

The team have an impressive 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, where they consistently top deal volume tables.

The average deal value is ?2m to ?5m, as a result of the solid volume of deals being dealt with by the junior team. The partners generally work in the mid-market, where average deals are around the ?8m-?10m mark, with at least 4-5 larger deals per year. They are currently instructed on numerous deals larger than ?20m meaning the ideal candidate 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 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 the flexibility that you would not get at other regional or national firms going hand-in-hand with their reputation for looking after their staff.
