Manchester City Of Manchester

Join a prestigious international, Top 20 law firm that has set themselves apart from the competition; this is well demonstrated by the innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking way in which they deliver legal services. They were an extremely early adopter of technology and have used AI to streamline their processes. They continue to achieve year on year organic growth. They continue to receive an abundance of industry and employer awards every year.

The Firm:

With offices throughout every major UK City, and internationally, the firm is Tier 1 in the Legal 500 across an abundance of specialisms. They have been repeatedly recognised for their commercial awareness, innovation, and sector knowledge. This Top 20 law firm boasts over 400 Partners, many of whom are homegrown and have established stellar individual reputations that give them and the firm real gravitas.

The firm has made significant investment throughout 2020, with the Manchester office being a key area of focus for the firm. This is evidenced by the investment they have made into the latest technology, continuously improving the office space, and the number of strategic heavyweight hires made in the last 12 months alone. They have a strong appetite for growth, and 2021 will be no different.

Investment in technology has always been an important part of who the firm is. They are constantly looking to remain ahead of the curve, provide a seamless client experience, and take away the monotonous administrative duties that will free up time to focus on what you do best; deliver top quality client service, build relationships, and generate revenue.

The client base reflects the firm's calibre, reputation, and expert knowledge. You will be representing international clients, household FTSE 250 names, and public sector bodies, making for a challenging, yet interesting and rewarding caseload.

What truly sets this firm apart is their culture. You may expect a firm of this size to have a stuffy, corporate environment, but that couldn't be further from reality. You will find a close-knit, collaborative team that will welcome you with open arms from day one, and an active social calendar that will allow you to integrate and build strong relationships with the wider team. This makes for an enjoyable and stimulating work environment, allowing the firm to enjoy an unrivalled employee retention rate. You will also find that the firm nurtures and develops legal talent; the growing number of home-grown partners well demonstrates this.

The Role:

You will join the firm's highly regarded, Legal 500 recognised IP team as a Senior Associate, based in their Manchester office.

The IP department undertakes a diverse range of high-value IP matters, including patents, trademarks, copyright registration and litigation, and reputation management. The IP department has a global reputation, and you will have a hands-on role in exciting, high-value work.

As a senior member of the team, you will mentor and oversee the junior lawyers and help them grow and progress. Despite their size, the firm isn't looking for a cog in a wheel; you will be an individual with ideas and personality who can play a pivotal role in the department's growth and direction.

You will find that this opportunity comes with a high level of career investment and progression. Not only that, but international relocation is welcomed, and you will find that many of their lawyers have taken advantage of the firm's global reach by relocating to one of their offices across Europe, Asia and the US.
