Opportunities to build a career with one of the leading law firms in the North of England

Corporate/Commercial Solicitors

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Corporate/Commercial team at our Carlisle and/or Lancaster offices.

We are a vibrant and highly successful corporate practice with a very strong reputation for quality and effective transaction handling which extends well beyond our region, acting for both local SMEs and larger plcs. The team’s reputation is something which has been the principal building block of our practice.  Our aim is to handle complex legal issues in a pragmatic, professional, cost-effective and client friendly manner.

You will be exposed to a range of work including M&A, reorganisations and demergers, share buy backs, joint ventures, agency and distribution agreements, terms and conditions of business and general practical advice to our wide range of clients. The work is of very high quality, varied and challenging.

Who are we looking for?

We are prepared to consider candidates from newly qualified to partner level. If you are a newly qualified solicitor, you will have completed a training seat (or equivalent) in Corporate and Commercial.

The successful candidate will be confident and have the attitude to build networks, both internal and external. You should have excellent communication and writing skills, the ability to work independently and with attention to detail. You will have strong academics and good business acumen. You will have a strong client care focus and take a pride in delivering quality work.

We have always offered flexible working at the firm and as such can offer an exceptional quality of life/work balance. We are genuinely invested in career development and can offer superb long-term career prospects.

Salary will be dependent on experience.

Please apply with a CV and cover letter to Andrew Hill.
