Company Commercial Lawyer

We are working with a small corporate commercial team who have significant scope to grow, getting the work isn’t a problem and they are looking for a Chartered Legal Executive or fee earner qualified by experience to come in and work with the existing three person team and be part of their growth within Leeds City Centre.

This role would really suit someone who has a decent level of technical experience combined with the enthusiasm and commitment to help continue the development of this offer within the firm, they are equally happy to consider someone coming in to simply pick up and manage their existing work without the desire to undertake business development as they don’t struggle to find the work.

The firm themselves offer a full range of legal services and has a culture of being 'down to earth' and also very practical in their approach.

They have a friendly and inclusive working environment and great staff retention, in fact they provide a really supportive working environment.

The Role
We are looking for someone capable of picking up their company commercial work and working fairly autonomously within the team.

The kind of work that the firm handles includes:

General advice for business start-ups
Sale and purchase of smaller companies
Drafting and advising on all forms of contracts
Drafting shareholder agreements

The work is very much at the 'mid' to smaller end of the spectrum and they are keen to recruit someone used to dealing with business owners and enjoys these kind of clients.

They have a strong base of work already and expansion in other offices is naturally creating more work that is flowing through.

as mentioned earlier they could consider either:

Someone wanting to pick up a steady caseload of work, perhaps work part time, or certainly not have too much pressure for more work development, or
Someone who enjoys mid-level work and is keen to work with them to grow this further and to grow a small team

If you are interested in the latter there is plenty of support with marketing, the firm already has initiatives and events that they already run frequently.

If you are keen to build and develop your business development skills they could really help you.

If you want the former don’t worry as they have a strong flow of work from referrers and repeat clients.

The environment is a very straightforward one, no politics and good people who work sensibly and they are looking for someone who will thrive as part of this!

A competitive salary is on offer
This role offers reasonably good work life balance for a corporate commercial role and very realistic targets they are happy to consider someone wanting part time hours or a degree of flexibility.
They offer a genuinely supportive and friendly working environment.
