Local Government & Health Solicitor

We are working closely with this smaller national firm in their recruitment of a commercial solicitor to join the commercial and infrastructure team in the Leeds office.

This is a firm that is well known for its strong sector focus across local government, healthcare, third sector and housing sectors, as well as strong expertise with private sector manufacturing, waste, corporate and insurance clients.

The Leeds office is one of the relatively new entrants to the Yorkshire market and is going from strength to strength. The team is at the forefront of local authority and healthcare innovation and has advised on a number of ground-breaking and award winning projects. They are ranked number one in all the legal directories for this area of work. The team is experienced in all local authority, health and blue light work and also supports colleagues across the firm as a whole on other projects and commercial transactions.

The role is wide ranging and encompasses challenging commercial issues & transactions, major projects, governance matters, investigations & enquiries, devolution matters and cross sector collaboration between public bodies, alternative delivery vehicles, commercial financing of projects and other commercial issues that arise across the local government and healthcare sectors.

Ideally the successful applicant will already be familiar with advising local authorities and NHS clients, or be familiar with how these organisations work, although this is not strictly necessary as long as you have solid commercial and / or projects experience. The team welcomes applications from candidates who are newly qualified, or soon to qualify, up to around 5 years' PQE, and your experience can come from private practice, or in-house in the public or private sector.

The firm offers very solid commercal market rate salaries and a comprehensive benefits package, as well as a genuine opportunity to progress in this relatively new and growing office.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
