A leading regional Law firm is seeking a Commercial Solicitor to be based in Cardiff or Reading office. The Commercial and Charities business group operates across all of all regions to provide seamless service to our clients no matter where they are based. The practice is very busy and is looking to hire a Solicitor to be based in Cardiff, supporting the wider group. Joining means you will have exposure to a wide range of interesting, high quality work and excellent opportunities to develop your technical knowledge and commercial skill set.
You will be advising on a wide range of commercial contracts including matters related to Fintech, franchising, IP, manufacturing and data protection. You will be involved in drafting and negotiating contracts of various sizes and values and will be encouraged to act as an extension of our clients' in-house legal teams.
Whilst you will be based in the Cardiff office we are currently working remotely and so as long as you would be willing to come the office on occasion, you may not necessarily need to be currently based there. You will be a core part of the team and able to access the technology, support and resources you require.
Skills / Experience Required:
You will have developed a good grounding in commercial law in your early career or be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in this practice. Your experience will have been gained at a similarly tiered firm to Blake Morgan as a Paralegal or Solicitor. You will be comfortable drafting and negotiating contracts; carrying out legal research and due diligence; guiding clients through commercial challenges; developing client relationships and ensuring that we deliver solutions in line with our clients' aims.
