This is a fantastic opportunity to join a premium UK legal practice, ranked in the Top 70 of law firms. This award-winning practice is seeking an experienced Corporate solicitor to join its successful corporate department.

This practice offers some of the highest quality in the UK and would make an ideal firm in which to develop your career. You will benefit from a generous salary, structured training and insights from legal 500 recognised Partners.

The Firm:

In recent years, this Top 70 firm has substantially grown and now has over 200 staff. They are top tier across several practice areas, which increases yearly. They are based in the heart of the West End of London and deal with the same quality of work as much larger City firms without all the disadvantages associated with being a small cog in a big machine.

You will find that with smaller teams, it is common for NQ's and Partners to be working side by side, this is not a Partner-led, pyramid structure. Fee earners of all levels have the opportunity to be involved with business development. It is common for fee earners to gain such a level of exposure they gain PQE beyond their years.

It is common for lawyers from City-based and Top 50 firms to leave in favour of this very practice. This is due to the quality of working being the same but with the added benefits of greater flexibility and a more friendly environment.


You will find a creative, supportive, dynamic, forward-thinking, and progressive culture. They invest heavily in their staff, with industry-leading training and a real platform for progression. This firm is a true destination for Magic/Silver Circle Lawyers and offers the quality of work to match - while maintaining an enviable work/life balance.

The firm was quick to adapt to the "new normal" and as a result, offers a flexible approach to hybrid working.

Other work covered will include a range of commercial and banking work such as lending and security documents, terms and conditions and supply and distribution agreements.

This position comes with a large amount of client contact and where you will manage your own files autonomously with Partner support.
