Are you an incentives lawyer or a corporate lawyer looking for a new challenge in a client facing role that combines transactional, technical and advisory elements?
We are growing our Employee Incentives and Private Capital practice and are looking for a talented lawyer to join the team.
Get in touch if you are open to discussing a left field opportunity and to be part of a growth story. As a Burges Salmon lawyer you will be encouraged to bring your ideas to the table with opportunities for early client responsibility and career development.
You can be based in Bristol, Edinburgh or London. We are also interested in speaking to people who are looking to work more remotely over the long-term.
Team / Work
The practice is led by Nigel Watson, who recently joined Burges Salmon to grow and lead the team bringing with him extensive experience in all aspects of the design, implementation and operation of reward structures and equity incentive plans as well as advising remuneration committees on management incentive issues.
We are already experiencing real momentum in this practice building on established client relationships, new businesses and associations with private equity firms.
You may have seen the firm were recognised as 'Law Firm of the Year' (2020) in the British Legal Awards and according to RollOnFriday's 2019 survey - Burges Salmon "is and always has been about its people they seem to understand that if they just maintain a laser-like focus on that, you can't go too wrong".
Your background does not need to be in exclusively incentives, a corporate background is absolutely fine. Whatever your roots, we will help develop, grow and nurture your skills.
As you would expect we also take training very seriously and have a structured training and development programme for all our lawyers.
You'll be part of a collaborative, friendly and sociable setting in which to thrive and realise your potential.
What we're looking for
We are looking for individuals who are keen to continue developing themselves and their capabilities. Individuals who have strong commercial acumen, are a team player and have excellent interpersonal, client and commercial skills.
You will need to be adaptable and interested in picking up a variety of different matters over the coming years and able to deal with complex work.
You will need to be a registered Solicitor with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority by September 2020 (or prior).
We are committed to finding the right person for this role and are open to discussing flexible working patterns.
