Job Details

Commercial law firm in Reading is seeking to recruit two non-contentious Commercial lawyers – one of 0 to 1 and the other of 2 or more years’ PQE. The team advises clients from a broad range of sectors including local authority, leisure, charities, healthcare, technology, utilities, telecoms, franchising and education. The practice is currently acting for household names on innovative and interesting matters and due to the number of instructions they are looking to hire a Solicitor to be based in the Thames Valley region. The successful candidate will be advising on a wide range of commercial contracts including matters related to: commercial trading agreements; IT contracts; outsourcing agreements; 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 clients' in-house legal teams. 

The firm continues to work flexibly between the office and home and so the need to be physically in the office will not be full time and is something that will be agreed with you on a business need basis.  You will be a core part of the team and able to access the technology, support and resources you require. Applicants will have developed a good grounding in Commercial law in their early career or be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in this practice. If you are newly-qualified you will have done a seat in a commercial team. If you are already qualified, you will be comfortable drafting and negotiating contracts and keen to develop further your skills; carrying out legal research and due diligence; guiding clients through commercial challenges; and, developing client relationships.

In addition to working on specific vacancies, we may (from time to time) send details of candidates who possess specialist legal skills/ knowledge relevant to you and therefore could be potentially of interest.
