Senior Corporate Solicitor (Birmingham Based)

Progressive opportunity with genuine flexibility

We have experienced consistent year on year growth since we started five years ago. We are now a team of more than 50 people and will support almost 1000 clients this financial year as we continue to grow monthly. However, notwithstanding our growth so far, we are more ambitious than we have ever been.

To facilitate and support our ambitious plans, we are looking for a full time senior commercial lawyer to join our team in Birmingham. Ideally we are looking for solicitors with at least 10 years PQE but we would also be interested in hearing from you should you be more junior but believe you would otherwise meet the criteria we are looking for.

In return we promise to provide an environment and an opportunity that is radically different to the norm.
