Our client is a major global practice with a presence in over 30 countries. This, of course, means that their lawyers have access to some of the biggest and most high profile clients, offering some of the best quality of work. That said, this firm has had a presence in the Yorkshire market for over 200 years and they are absolutely committed to providing unrivalled support to businesses across the region and beyond.

The overall Corporate team is one of the largest in the world and deals with a broad range of companies as you would imagine. From global names to smaller start-ups, dealing with mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, to private and public equity - the scope of work here is huge.


This is an excellent opportunity to join a group of world-class lawyers who possess not only unparalleled legal experience, but a team which also boasts industry-specific knowledge from areas including banking, energy, healthcare, insurance, life sciences as well as many other sectors. The right candidate will be given exposure to a level of  work that is unrivalled within the region and indeed, nationally / internationally. What this firm will provide in return is a commitment to give you the highest quality training and development; a generous, industry-leading salary and benefits package; and all the support you will require to be able to make your day-to-day work life easier. [Any candidates from the City who wish to retain an excellent standard of work but wish to make a move out of London, this could be the perfect move for you.]


The ideal candidate will be 1-5 years PQE. You will also possess an excellent academic record and will have come from a similar corporate background from a well-established team. The focus here is on an individual who is driven to develop their own practice within their own specialised area; someone who will invest time in client engagement and development and who has much more to offer than simply a set of results. You will also have personality; and if responsibility and autonomy are what you crave, then this firm will hand you the reigns of control and provide you with the right level of support and opportunities to ensure you succeed.


  • An excellent academic background;


    1-5 years PQE;


    Corporate experience from within a well-established, corporate team;


    A naturally excellent communicator who is able to establish and maintain good client relations; and


    A dynamic and driven individual with a desire to grow.


If you know the direction in which you want to take your career but have not been given the infrastructure or opportunity to do so thus far, then the success and size of this firm means that they can and will provide you with everything you need to be able to flourish.
