Our Corporate team has enjoyed significant growth and success in recent years and we expect for this to continue for the foreseeable future.
In order to keep up with client demand and further build our client base, we are interesting in talking to Corporate Lawyers at all levels to support our private Equity team.
Working directly with lead Partner Matt Stoate, you will support a wide range of institutional investors, management teams, investee and portfolio companies and banks on the full life cycle of private equity transactions.
You will also work closely with our leading Islamic Finance team.
Clients tell us that we not only provide high quality legal advice but also corporate finance execution skills and longer term perspectives.
We understand that equity in the business has an emotional value beyond the financial and know our way around issues that can occur on private equity transactions based on our deal experience.
This is an exciting opportunity as you will have genuine scope to fast track your career within a team with a proven track record of developing and progressing its lawyers.
We do not operate with glass ceilings and your career progression will be entirely on merit and under your control. We operate a national service line approach and the quality of work you are given is in no way impacted by your location.
If you are the best person for the client you will work with them.
We have fully embraced both agile and flexible working; we value output not presenteeism, which means there is time to fit your lifestyle with your work commitments.
We offer every employee a weekly life style hour to use as they wish, no questions asked. You'll have free fruit, access to treadmill walking desks to boost your creativity or you could just join one of the numerous running clubs.
Whatever it is we recognise that you will spend a lot of time at work and we want you to be happy and comfortable in order to be at your best.
