This reputable international law firm has gone from strength to strength throughout 2020. With headcount growth at 10% YOY and ambitious plans to build on this, it is a genuinely exciting time to join the firm with significant scope to progress.

The firm attracts an exceptionally high-calibre of clients from HNW individuals to multinational PLCs. The complexity and value of the work you will gain exposure to will rival any law firm in the North.

Well-known for their culture, you will be part of a close-knit team that arrange regular social events and all have the same ambitous and motivated personalities.

This will enable you to develop the leadership and commercial awareness required to climb the ladder to Partnership.

You will have a clearly defined progression path that is a road walked by many of the existing partnership team, receive a highly competitive remuneration package, and have an excellent work/life balance.
