Corporate Solicitor

Corporate lawyers are in demand, at all levels across Leeds nude Yorkshire! So why, I hear you ask, should I move jobs right now? Particularly when you are probably being looked after by your current firm and team…..



Only you can decide if now is the right time however we have a career enhancing opportunity for a junior lawyer right now which may transform you as a lawyer.

This role offers:




  • Opportunity to work one to one with a dynamic partner who has created a significant loyal client base that give them repeat work - if you are interested in learning how to replace this you would certainly be supported in doing so and would be learning from one of the best!

  • Access to high quality, fast paced work, sometimes with an international flavour.

  • You will be given responsibility early on and will be handling matters such as corporate joint ventures, major transactions, mergers and acquisitions and more.

  • A chance to be part of a new venture, but with a highly established international firm, a venture where your contribution to the development and success of this team will be highly identifiable even for those in the early stages of their career.

  • Wider national support, both from a training perspective but also a really strong corporate presence nationally to offer support and development.

  • This Partner builds loyal teams too, something that says a lot about the way they work in itself.

    They would envisage you joining and having every opportunity to develop as a first rate Corporate Lawyer within the Leeds, Yorkshire and wider market.



In return they are looking to recruit someone either Newly Qualified or up to about 3 years pqe who really wants to be part of something that will grow, someone happy to immerse themselves in the work who has a commercial as well as legal perspective, strong communication skills and a good academic background.

They do need a base of experience, whilst you would be joining a large commercial practice you don't need to have gained experience within a similar firm.

You may already be within such a practice, however they appreciate that there are some really great lawyers who are at smaller firms, if you are one looking to step up into a more commercial firm and have the traits and potential to do so this could be a great opportunity to do so.



Whilst a new team, this is within an established firm that has a great reputation, they really care about their people and faired well during the pandemic, a lot of thought went into supporting their people from both a work and wellbeing perspective.

Pre-pandemic they had a flexible approach to work and going forward this is being retained and enhanced so don't worry if you don't live on the doorstep to Leeds, there could be scope for you to be in the office as little as two days a week if that appeals to you.
