Commercial Solicitor

Commercial Solicitor. BCL Legal are currently assisting a very good commercial firm with the recruitment of a commercial solicitor for an unusual role with a clear international dimension as well fantastic progression opportunities.

The opportunity, to be based out of Manchester, is with a firm that has offices in the UK and Gibraltar and provides advice on English, Gibraltar and European law with a very strong client base in the finance and technology sectors.

It is so different as the team work very closely with their clients, almost providing an extended in-house legal function, meaning they bring significant industry experience as well as a flexible approach to problem-solving.

The office in Manchester is headed by an ex top tier lawyer, who was looking for something different to the long-hours and inflexible approach found in the top-tier without compromising on the quality of work.

They work with established large multi-national clients (FTSE and Nasdaq listed), investment entrepreneurs and early stage companies and are specialists in managing and advising on high value cross-border projects within Europe and, as mentioned above, they have a big presence in the gaming and financial services sectors, currently advising a lot of their clients on the implications of Brexit.

They are well placed to help clients on a wide variety of matters which includes cloud computing, cross-border taxation (including VAT), data protection, licensing, marketing, sales & distribution and technology development.

The team in Manchester consists of, as well as the head, a mid-level solicitor, a senior consultant, an apprentice and a paralegal. We met with them at the beginning of last year and they have one of the most impressive offerings we have ever seen.

They offer very flexible working arrangements; employees are given the chance to work from home when they want as well as having the chance to spend time at the Gibraltar office. They are also able to accommodate lawyers who need part-time employment and do not have impossibly high financial or hourly billing targets!
