Corporate/Commercial Solicitor


Job Description

About the Company?

A top ranked full service commercial law firm with an impressive North West client base is looking to recruit a Corporate/Commercial Solicitor (0-4 years PQE) to assist the Partners on a wide range of company/commercial matters.

The firm in question has 15 Partners and over 25 Solicitors and offers a unique corporate service to a significant number of locally and nationally recognised commercial clients ranging from OMB’s, SME’s, AIM And PLUS companies.

A significant number of Solicitors working for the firm came from large national and international law firms. All have been impressed by the quality of work available, the ambition of the team and the competitive value of the corporate services provided to clients.

One of the great selling points of the firm is its ability to offer and deliver a high quality, better value alternative to national heavyweights operating out of Manchester. Their unstuffy, personal approach to client relationships continues to be commended by clients across the board.

About the role?

From a corporate point of view, work will include advising on mergers, acquisitions, sales, equity investment, business restructuring, the placing of shares (public and private), AIM and PLUS flotations together with a small amount of non-contentious insolvency advice from time to time.
Commercial work will include advising on and drafting IT, E-commerce and Telecoms contracts, software development, licensing and hosting agreements, agency and distribution agreements and a range of non-contentious IP issues.

High quality training and mentoring from industry recognised partners goes hand in hand with this role as does a competitive regional salary and benefits.
