Commercial Solicitor

This top tier big six firm in Leeds is looking to recruit an experienced commercial solicitor to join its prestigious Commercial & Projects team.

The team is one of the largest outside London and offers a truly comprehensive range of services across a number of sectors including public sector, energy, waste, education, environmental, health and leisure. The experienced lawyers within the team advise on the full spectrum of joint ventures, collaboration & partnering agreements, outsourcing, social housing, PPP/PFI projects, energy & renewables, data protection / freedom of information, facilities management, competition, state aid and public procurement, which provides a challenging variety of work and a superb platform from which to further build your skills and specialisms within this area.

The team is now looking to replace an experienced lawyer who is moving in-house, the eternal occupational hazard of commercial and projects team. They are looking for a sharp and commercially astute solicitor who can see the big picture without missing the details, who enjoys building lasting relationships with established clients and developing new clients.

Ideally you will have a broad commercial and projects background with 5 years' PQE or more, perhaps with specialist expertise within that field in public/private contracts, utilities, energy or social housing. In a perfect world, you will come from private practice and have gone some way towards building up your own network of contacts and be comfortable taking responsibility for business development initiatives as well as leading on transactions, but candidates from in-house where there is strong sector synergy will also be welcome to apply.

There's room at the top in this team and there are genuine opportunities here to take your career forward either along the Partner or Director track.

After a recent firm-wide review of salary levels, the firm is very much in line with other top tier firms in Leeds, with a comprehensive benefits package.

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