Description

Commercial Solicitor Leeds - Senior Associate or Partner

Top 20, award winning UK law firm is looking to appoint a senior solicitor to join its progressive and well regarded Commercial team in Leeds.

The firm is ranked number one of the top 20 law firms for the quality of its legal advice, with in-depth industry expertise in six chosen sectors, including central and local government; energy and industrials; financial services; retail, food and hospitality; technology; and transport. Its clients include major household names and FTSE-listed companies.

The commercial team is a group of contract experts recognised for their skill in putting together complex agreements designed to prevent disputes, reduce commercial risk to businesses and present opportunities for growth. The firm's commercial and IP specialists have a wealth of experience working for major FTSE 350 organisations across a range of contract matters.

The firm is now looking to expand in the Leeds team to meet business growth needs and they are looking to appoint a solicitor with at least 6 or 7 years' first-rate technical experience in non-contentious commercial work, perhaps with an additional specialism such as IT or IP transactional work. The team is involved in the usual mix of outsourcing, distribution, agency and supply agreements, the full range of IT agreements and e-commerce, data protection and B2C issues. In addition, you will have management & supervisory experience, be very comfortable business developing at any level and may have a client following, although this is not essential.

Corporate support experience would also come in handy for this role as the team regularly carries out associated commercial work as part of major corporate deals. Experience in one or more of the firm's core sectors would make your experience a more productive fit.

This is an excellent opportunity for a technically strong and ambitious lawyer to join a firm that can offer genuinely high quality work, and is well known for being a friendly supportive place to work, where flexible working is part of the culture of the firm. Applications are welcomed from candidates who have upwards of 6 years' qualified experience and there is no upper experience limit for this role.
