Corporate and M&A 2 to 3 years' PQE

The corporate and M&A group is seeking to recruit a solicitor with two to three years' PQE and experience taking the leading role on stand-alone projects. The role will involve advising clients on a variety of matters, whilst working closely with partners and solicitors to provide a seamless service.

The corporate and M&A group covers public M&A, private M&A, private equity, capital markets, and advisory work. Teams are partner led and lawyers are not left in the lurch to fend for themselves. That said, we want to stretch our associates and they are given as much 'rope' as they can handle. We staff projects with lean teams so all team members get real involvement in a project. The team (and the firm) works in a very collegiate manner. Continued professional education is an important part of life at all levels within the team. There will be on average at least one session per week and more at the junior end.

Duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Draft and review complex documents
  • Take instructions
  • Negotiate agreements
  • Draft sale and purchase agreements, bid letters, board papers and shareholder resolutions
  • Seek new opportunities for work and engage in business development activities
  • Act as sole point of contact for clients
  • Due diligence

The successful candidate will possess the following key requirements:

  • Qualified lawyer with two to three years’ PQE (or overseas equivalent)
  • Some experience gained within the London office of a Magic circle or Silver circle firm
  • Excellent technical knowledge gained within a private practice
  • Able to win the confidence of clients by offering quality legal advice in a commercial context
  • Experience of leading on matters whilst working as part of a team
  • Credible and proactive
  • Excellent interpersonal skills at all levels
  • Intelligent, driven, and with outstanding academic credentials
