Job Details

We have a strong pipeline of PSL openings across a range of practice areas, including key transactional and advisory areas such as Corporate, Private Equity, Funds, M&A, ECM, DCM, Banking & Finance, Projects, Construction, Real Estate, Competition, Tax, Commercial, Employment, Pensions, Share Schemes, Dispute Resolution and Financial Markets Regulation. 

These opportunities are open to both experienced PSLs of a range of levels, as well as experienced associates seeking a change of direction. 

PSL positions offer a significant improvement in work/life balance, as well as the opportunity to work on a flexible or part-time basis.  PSLs benefit from an absence of chargeable hours targets and fee-earning responsibilities, yet still hold intellectually challenging and important client-facing positions, and act as integral components of a firm’s business. 

The PSL function also allows for far greater involvement in business development matters.  Associates who enjoy partaking in BD as part of their current role should therefore consider undertaking a PSL position.   

It is also crucial to note that undertaking a PSL role will not hinder future career progression prospects, nor will it act as a bar to partnership.  Should circumstances change, successful candidates will be able to transition back to fee-earning positions with ease. 

Undertaking a PSL position is therefore an excellent option for Associates who are currently seeking an improvement in work/life balance, or the option to work more flexibly or part-time, but who may later desire to resume their fee-earning capacities.  

Associates seeking an improvement in work/life balance, the opportunity to work on a flexible or part-time basis or fully remotely, and the chance to focus more heavily on business development matters, should not hesitate to enquire for further information.
