Job Details

Time for you to make the leap into leading an Edinburgh corporate department?

Then read on.

QED Legal's long standing client has set it's sights on establishing a corporate practice group in their Edinburgh office.

They have gone from strength to strength in recent years, rapidly advancing their offering in corporate/commercial throughout the UK and with designs on establishing themselves as a major player in Edinburgh.

To do this they will follow one of two routes:

1. Engage with an already established Corporate Partner, or potentially a team move.
2. Recruit an up and coming corporate solicitor at Senior Associate or Director level and build out quickly from there.

If you sound like it's worth speaking to me about either of these scenarios, please do reach out to Neil Campbell at QED Legal via the details provided.

This is a unique opportunity in Edinburgh at present and if you're remotely curious, let's have a confidential discussion. 


As a recruiter you have to network and speak to large amounts of people and lots of law firms to really understand the market and have the connections to match people with opportunity quickly when the time arises. A good recruiter needs to be Quick, Excellent and Dynamic in everything that they do. Allow the team at QED to demonstrate what they can do for your career.

• Partner moves – both full equity and fixed share equity
• Team moves
• Firm Mergers / Bolt-on’s
• Succession / retirement planning
• In House Counsel
• Patent / Trademark Attorneys
• Other jurisdictions – placing lawyers into and from other countries
• Professional Support Lawyers
• Associate moves – focusing not just on team and culture fit but also client and work quality and room for future advancement.
• Assistant moves – lawyers cannot afford to make mistakes with their career moves. In the crucial early years exposure to the correct mentor and clients is essential.
• Legal professionals – FILEX, MILEX, ILEX, Licenced Conveyancers, paralegals, legal assistants and fee earners
• Support services - practice managers, COLP / COFA – regulatory and compliance, office managers, IT developers, case management specialists, law costs draftsmen and negotiators, legal secretaries, legal cashiers
