Our client, a well-regarded Top 200 firm, are looking to bring on board a corporate lawyer of between 3-5 years' PQE to cover a period of maternity leave for 6 months. The role will start in a couple of months' time and has the potential to be extended.

The corporate department advises on a full range of corporate and business law matters and provide commercial and pragmatic advice on mergers & acquisitions, management buy-outs and partnership matters. The team has notable experience in acting for high-net-worth individuals in relation to their corporate law and business requirements. Their clients include high-net-worth individuals, family offices, international groups, business owners, private and publically listed companies and sovereign wealth funds across a wide range of industries.

The successful candidate can expect to work on a full range of corporate transactions to include share and business sales and purchases, reorganisations, shareholder and investment agreements. Whilst the focus of the work is transactional, there is also a requirement to have knowledge and experience of some commercial law - to include loan agreements, distribution agreements and terms and conditions.

As well as possessing experience in the above, candidates should also be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Qualification as a Solicitor in England & Wales, or another commonwealth jurisdiction with relevant UK experience
  • Between 3-5 years' PQE gained within a reputable corporate department. (Please note the PQE banding for this is a guide and we are happy to review candidates with slightly less, or more, experience)
  • The ability to work autonomously with limited supervision
  • Excellent communication skills
  • The ability to prioritise and progress client matters effectively
  • Strong research and drafting skills
  • The ability to keep up to date with changes in legislation and market developments

Please apply with your CV to jennifer.pike@jamesonlegal.com in confidence.
