An exciting and rare opportunity for a Construction Partner has arisen with unique professional services company in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. The firm has many aspects of its business, and the role is offered on a full-time basis.
The firm has experienced significant growth over the last 24 months and has experienced a 50 % increase in revenue since 2018. They also now stand at over 500 fee earners with 8 offices across the South West and the Midlands. With consistent growth since 2013, now is the time to join this heavy-hitting, commercially minded giant of a law firm.
2019 has been this firm's year. 40 Fee earners and 10 Partners recruited and retention of 90 % has allowed this firm to break into the north and midlands as well as 4 successful acquisitions.
The firm is a full-service law firm but has particular expertise across Real Estate, Dispute Resolution, Corporate and Private Client work.
They have a brilliant culture which sees the client's services by entire teams of Lawyers and Partners rather than individuals, and they believe that collaboration releases untapped potential in their people. They also have a good structure in which they separate the senior management team from the fee earners so that Solicitors can focus on technical law rather than finance and management.
