Commercial Solicitor - Partnership Opportunity
Commercial Solicitor 5+ years PQE
Wanstead, East London
Established over 50 years, my client has a strong client base of both businesses and individuals. They pride themselves on client care and do not take in any high-volume fixed fee work. They have traditional values when it comes to client care and do not want this compromised. They have a friendly working culture and offer lots of progression. It is this approach which has led to a 98% staff retention over the last 3 years. The average amount of years of staff service is 16 years - they are the type of firm where once people join they stay at their entire careers. They have a network of offices and are ingrained into the local community with their fee earners having a real level of expertise and knowledge of the market they work.
Due to an upcoming retirement, an opportunity has arisen for a Senior Commercial Solicitor to join the Commercial and Corporate Department with the view to Partnership.
The Department deals with a wide range of Corporate and Commercial matters including but not limited to;
· Company and Asset Sales and Purchases
· Mergers and Acquisitions
· Joint ventures, Start-Ups and Buy-Outs
· Partnership and Shareholders' Agreements
· Directors' and Partners' liabilities
· Franchising agreements
· Employment Issues
· Commercial Property Transactions
Therefore, it is expected that you will be at a 5 years PQE Commercial Solicitor experienced in handling all matters of corporate and commercial work. You will be independent, however there is a lot of support available within the Department while working alongside the current Partner and Head of Department. This role would suit an individual who would like to take a step back from City life without comprising on the quality of work as work/life balance is paramount to the firm. You will be given autonomy to go out and meet with clients to make the role your own.
Salary is negotiable depending on your level of PQE plus an excellent bonus scheme.
This role will be based in East London close to Wanstead.
