Experience Level

This role is to join an outstanding Legal 500 firm and lead their Business Risk & Regulation department, this is an exceptional opportunity to drive this department forward and become a key figure in a top 100 ranked firm.

The Firm

Ranked in the Top 100, and top tier across several areas, this law firm has a culture though that stands them apart from nearly all firms of their size. They are a people orientated business; they have a reputation for nurturing talent and a feel that you would normally only associate with much smaller or regional firms.

They have a completely open-door policy with Partners seated throughout the open plan office with much more junior staff; this even applies to the CEO. You will find there is no hierarchy with even Paralegals being encouraged to share their thoughts. Just recently a Paralegal undertook a training session for a whole team including Partner; it is this collaborative approach which has seen them progress Solicitors to Partners in a record breaking time.

The firm is looking to hire a Business Risk & Regulation Solicitor at Partner level into their established and yet growing Bristol, Somerset office.

You will lead this exceptional firm's successful Business Risk & Regulation Team.

You will work directly with the Head of Dispute Resolution, and the Risk & Regulation teams, to provide a comprehensive legal risk offering in relation to Health & Safety, Environment and Food Safety.

You will specialise in defending corporate clients against substantial prosecutions brought by the Health & Safety Executive, Environment Agency, Food Standards Agency, Trading Standards and Local Authorities, relating to potentially serious breaches of practice standards.

You will be leading a team which has gained experience in highly regulated industries including Construction, Manufacturing, Agriculture, Transport and logistics, Waste and Food businesses.

As a truly experienced lawyer in this field, you will have already gained considerable experience within one or more of these specific sectors, and have developed a strong reputation and impressive following with a range of clients.

The firm have some incredibly exciting growth plans and they rival many City firms and it's an exciting time to join them.

This role would suit an established Partner with a strong client following to evidence your capabilities and help drive the department forward.
