Commercial Solicitor

This friendly mid-market national firm, well known for its open and supportive working environment and interesting range of sectors, is looking for a commercial solicitor to join the team in Leeds.

The firm's working culture regularly wins awards and it is often described by lawyers of the firm as 'the nicest place I've ever worked'.

The commercial team covers so much more than your average commercial contracts, offering expertise across a wide range of sectors on major projects, public-private projects, joint ventures, collaboration & partnership agreements and a whole range of bespoke trading arrangements.

They deal with a wide range of public and private sector clients, which leads to genuine variety in the work. As a result of funding cuts and other changes, many public sector organisations and bodies from local authorities through to police forces are finding new and interesting ways of generating income, which leads to a wide range of bespoke drafting opportunities. University clients are engaging in all sorts of interesting commercial activities in the digital age and a broad range of major private sector clients across transport, logistics, retail, manufacturing and leisure deliver up the full rack of commercial legal work.

Very little of what the lawyers in this team get involved in is volume or process-driven in any way, but requires a more bespoke and considered approach, which makes for a more interesting day at work.

The team operates very cohesively as a national team with monthly meetings by video conference and every member of the team has regular one-to-one meetings with their line manager to resolve any difficulties, pass on praise from clients and identify ongoing training needs. It's one of the most supportive working environments in private practice.

They have identified a skills gap between the junior members of the team and a very experienced associate and are ideally looking to recruit a solicitor with at least 3 years' experience in the field. The nature of the team and the work spread means that to an extent you can very much make this role your own, either focussing more on the public sector side of things if this is your bag, or private sector, or a mix of the two if you really want the variety. they would like to recruit at Solicitor level with a view to progressing the lawyer through to Associate within a sensible timeframe.

If you're looking for part time, then four days a week can be readily accommodated, and a day a week from home after a short bedding in period is also the norm, if that is your preference.

If good quality work, and variety, within a supportive working environment that gives you the opportunity to flourish and progress, is what you're looking for, then this national firm would like to hear from you.

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