Partnership Opportunity for Senior Lawyers

Partnership opportunities across a range of legal services

  • Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham and London
  • Genuine Flexibility & Remote Working on Offer
  • Equity Partnership Opportunity with Uncapped Earning Potential

Are you a senior lawyer? Have you hit a glass ceiling? Or are you fed up that your hard-earnt fee income is being eaten up by unnecessary overheads or shared with fellow partners not pulling their weight? Perhaps you’re battle weary from overbearing office politics and management burdens? Maybe equity isn’t worth what that they are asking? Do you crave more autonomy and flexibility?

If any of the foregoing apply to you, we have a genuinely exciting and entrepreneurial opportunity that puts your future in your hands.  A true meritocracy.  BUT this isn’t just “eat what you kill” – you will be paid a comfortable salary, you’ll be part of a collaborative culture of likeminded senior city lawyers who actually get stuff done and don’t just talk about it.  In addition, you’ll be supported by industry leading business development and marketing functions.

Harper James is pioneering a new way of working with our national and international clients and of remunerating our partners, you’ll get an immediate capital share and unlimited earning potential… but you won’t just be motivated by money, you’ll thrive in a flat structure that enables the entrepreneur in you to reach its full potential.

What would you do with all those hours currently wasted in the office or during your daily commute?  In addition, an established infrastructure will unshackle you from all the admin and management responsibilities that hold you back – you’ll actually be able to focus on building your practice and looking after your clients.

We advise a range of clients, from start-ups to huge multi-nationals, and there is a strong pipeline of work. Whilst a number of partners are already in situ, impressive growth means that there are opportunities across a range of business legal services – particularly in transactional areas – for senior lawyers with entrepreneurial flair to join us. A client following is not an imperative, but you will need to demonstrate that you are well-networked. and be prepared to back yourself.

The opportunities are suited to driven individuals who are already working at a senior (not necessarily partner) level but who crave greater freedom and flexibility.

There is a careful blend of remote and office-based working, ensuring that you can have a better work-life balance while still feeling part of a cohesive team in which you can share work and ideas and enjoy collaborating with others.

You will be supported by a strong back-office infrastructure including finance, marketing and business development to ensure that your time is focused on your clients.

You will be joining an integrated team of commercially minded, experienced lawyers working for an agile, entrepreneurial and innovative firm.
