Job Details

As part of this leading Top 20 law firm's corporate/M&A team, you will play a central role in transaction delivery, client relationship development, and the continued expansion of the practice. As such, this is an opportunity that will provide clear career progression opportunities at a pivotal stage in your career, so it really is not to be missed.

The Firm

This Top 20 firm has been consistently growing in both revenue and reputation over the years and is now recognised as top-tier by both Legal 500 and Chambers. On top of this, they are developing an international reputation based on this excellence.

The practice is well-known for its diversity - celebrating a wide range of perspectives in order to best serve the needs of its clients. Given the success of the firm they work with a wide range of businesses including a large number of FTSE 100 clients.

There is a well-developed culture of collaboration, with a dedicated knowledge team and accessible partners providing top-tier training and support - on both legal aspects as well as broader business development - to provide you with the skills to develop your own practice.

You will benefit from a range of benefits such as hybrid working, national and international secondment opportunities and lucrative referral and annual bonus schemes.

This firm has one of the best work/life balance offerings in the City while retaining the quality expected of a Top 20 firm. (You will get to be a part of some of the finest quality matters, with both a domestic and international flavour).

The firm's strong position in the market enables it to provide top-level training delivered from Partners who are singled out for their excellence in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

The Role

This is a stand out opportunity for a Corporate Senior Associate 4+ PQE to join this top 20 City of London law firm.

This role will suit you best if you are someone who wants to join an award-winning practice that has great breadth and variety and want to expand your knowledge and skillset and develop your career to quickly progress to the Managing Associate level (it's possible that you could be hired as an MA anyway if you're more experienced).

You'll be working with a team of colleagues who have previously been in international, Magic Circle, US, City, national or boutique law firms - as such, the quality of lawyers in the team sets them apart.

Within this role you will be managing and co-ordinating transactions from initial instruction through to closing, including multi-jurisdictional deals.

The team works on a range of corporate transactions including private and public mergers and acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures, intra-group restructurings, cross-border transactions and a variety of strategic and regulatory driven projects.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • A qualified solicitor (UK qualification) with 4+ years of PQE.
  • You will have good organisational skills.
  • You will have enthusiasm for intellectually challenging work.
  • Excellent client relationship skills and experience in business development.


  • Market-leading salary and excellent benefits with clear and structured progression paths.
  • A flexible and friendly working environment and a supportive team culture
  • Exposure to large, high-profile UK and international issues.

This is an excellent opportunity for a Corporate Senior Associate with 4+ years PQE, to join this Top 20 law firm in London.
