Description

Commercial / Public Sector Solicitor

BCL Legal is working alongside a top national/international firm seeking to recruit into its commercial/public sector team in Birmingham.

This firm has a wide client base which includes work from a range of sectors including construction, transport and infrastructure, financial services, education, health, leisure, engineering, charities, retail, energy and natural resources.

The successful commercial solicitor will be involved in work of real importance in the public sector. This firm's public sector commercial team has consistently been top rated in the Chambers and Legal 500 Guides over the past 10 years for the advice it provides to local authorities, agencies and other public sector bodies.

The work that the team is involved in is often at the cutting edge between public policy and law which makes it intellectually stimulating and interesting. The successful commercial solicitor would be advising on innovative projects and transactions so excellent legal analysis and a high degree of lateral thinking is required.

You will form part of a growing Birmingham commercial team and also support partners in London on a range of national work.

The work will be broad in scope and may include administrative and public law, procurement, state aid, corporate and commercial law, regeneration projects, new service delivery models such as TECKAL companies, shared service arrangements, outsourcing, joint ventures and governance.

Candidates applying for this position should have a true passion for work in this sector and public policy issues in general together with commerciality and political sensitivity.

It is envisaged that the ideal candidate will have between 3 and 8 years' PQE. Previous experience of working with public sector clients is also desired but more important is an excellent understanding of commercial contract law and public law. Experience of working with public sector clients on governance and/or procurement matters would be beneficial but not essential.
