Commercial Solicitor

Commercial Solicitor roles in Leeds rarely come with this much potential for progression.

This national firm has a phenomenal reputation across a number of public sector areas and is now looking to recruit an experienced commercial solicitor to join the team in the Leeds office.

They have a particularly strong reputation for healthcare work, but also real strength in depth in the education and housing sectors, with an exceptionally well established and loyal client base. They deal with the full range of commercial matters on behalf of major NHS bodies and trusts, healthcare regulators, GPs, private sector healthcare providers, charities, public and private sector housing providers and a wide array of educational establishments, providing strategic commercial advice across commercial contracts, joint ventures & joint working agreements, procurement, franchising, governance & vires issues and reorganisation & restructuring.

Due to some structural changes within the team, they are looking to take on an associate or senior associate with drive and ambition who wants to progress their career in a highly focussed and professional but extremely friendly firm. The work is exceptionally rewarding and interesting, often involving current public interest issues and working with clients who are very friendly and pleasant to deal with.

The role would suit someone who either has sector specific experience and is looking for an opportunity where they can genuinely progress, or perhaps someone from a more broad based commercial background who is finding themselves dealing with wall-to-wall contracts on behalf of faceless corporates and is looking for something which offers more job satisfaction.

Whilst it's not completely essential, it would be a major advantage if you have procurement experience as part of your skillset.

Level-wise, the firm can look at anyone with at least 4 or 5 years' experience. For those at senior associate / managing associate level, medium term partnership prospects are very real. This is a key role that they are looking to fill and ability and client-facing skills are more important here than business case, as existing & anticipated work levels exceed capacity, so lawyers wishing to return from in-house are also very much of interest.

The firm pays very strong market rate salaries alongside a comprehensive rack of benefits and an achievable & transparent bonus structure which can take earnings up to top tier levels but with a far better work life balance.

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