- Main thrust of the work is acquisition finance, leveraged buyouts, asset based lending, general corporate lending and real estate finance transactions
- The team is growing quite quickly and has a strong track record of nurturing new recruits through their career, especially in the case of retrain candidates
- The firm is very well liked in Leeds and has the enviable reputation for having the lowest turnover in fee earning staff of any firm in Leeds, by some margin.

- More experienced lawyers should be approaching the stage where they are ready to start leading on transactions and are keen to forge ahead with their career.
- Whatever your level, you will have a strong teamwork ethic, polished client skills, an outgoing personality and a 'can-do' attitude to work.
