Corporate Lawyer - Birmingham

Deloitte is one of the world's leading accountancy practices, offering global integrated professional services as part of a multi-disciplinary practice.

In pursuit of Deloitte's vision to be undisputed leading in professional services globally, they are seeking to transform the way their clients experience legal services in the UK and globally.

BCL Legal are delighted to be assisting Deloitte to grow their corporate and commercial legal team in Birmingham. This is a fantastic opportunity for a bright, ambitious and entrepreneurial corporate lawyer to work alongside the newly appointed Legal Director and contribute to the development of Deloitte's legal offering as part of a global multi-disciplinary practice.

Main Responsibilities:

A rare opportunity has arisen for a 2-6 years qualified corporate lawyer to join the Birmingham office of Deloitte and work alongside the newly appointed Legal Director to deliver excellent corporate and commercial legal advice.

This is the perfect opportunity for an ambitious corporate lawyer looking for a new challenge to play a pivotal role in the embryonic growth of Deloitte's legal services offering. Embedded within the supportive environment of the established Birmingham tax team, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work for FTSE listed clients across a range of sectors and become a key point of contact for legal work. This is an incredibly varied role which will see the successful corporate lawyer working alongside Deloitte tax specialists to provide collaborative advice on a range of matters including;

· private equity
· debt reorganisation
· restructurings
· M&A and

· Strong corporate experience to include: reorganisations, financial arrangements, entity reduction, intra-group transactions;
· A lawyer skilled at analysing and managing legal and commercial risk
· The ability to foster relationships with clients and third parties
· A genuine desire to help deliver innovative legal solutions
· A clear understanding of Deloitte's value proposition to create the future of law through a market leading multidisciplinary offering
· An ability and desire to work alongside non-lawyers and a willingness to develop a detailed understanding of the tax business in order to identify and deliver on joined up offerings
· A natural networker and entrepreneurial flare
· An ability to develop a strong profile in the market through networking
