Are you sick of the pressure of constantly having to meet targets? Are you sick of compromising on quality for the sake of quantity? Instead, do you want to work in a firm that really puts the client at the heart of everything they do? A firm who understands that high-quality service takes time? If so, this Corporate Solicitor role in Derby could be for you!
Our client is a top-70 UK law firm and is one of the fastest growing legal practices in the country. With an alternative business structure, the firm is able to work in a highly-modernised way and has been very successful with this approach, attracting a wide range of clients, from local business to national PLCs.
The firm has moved away from a traditional billing model and does not set employee targets – a decision designed to provide solicitors with the chance to really focus on getting the best result for their clients without having to worry that they’re spending too much time on their work and overcharging them.
You can hit the ground running and manage your own caseload of mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets work, cross-border transactions, group reorganisations and some private equity work. Furthermore, since the firm is constantly looking to expand its offering, you will have the chance to develop business and win new work for the firm, boosting your own profile in the area at the same time.
Our client envisages the successful candidate to be between 2 and 8 years PQE, however more important than an exact PQE level is technical ability and the drive and enthusiasm to provide service of the highest quality to all clients. The firm is therefore happy to consider individuals who fall outside of this bracket, yet can demonstrate corporate ability and dedication to the role.
This role offers the chance to handle high-quality work, the opportunity to become part of a modern and forward-thinking firm, as well as the chance to provide the best quality service without the pressure of targets. So if you are a corporate solicitor looking for a new challenge, why not apply?
