Full Time
Our national Corporate team continues to impress clients and industry experts alike. Clients tell us they love our ''excellent client service, responsiveness and clear understanding of what we need to achieve". The 50 strong national corporate practice are handling some ground breaking transactions within our sectors and supporting significant deals in the development of our clients' business. Needless to say it's an exciting place to be.

Our corporate lawyers support clients on a range of corporate transactions, notably M&A, private equity and public company transactions, reorganisations, joint ventures and collaborations, in addition to advising on corporate governance and statutory and regulatory issues.

Led by Partner, Stephen Pierce , the team are looking to build upon their national offering by recruiting an additional lawyer into Southampton.

What will you be doing?

In this varied role, you'll play a key part in helping us deliver services to our clients. You'll work on a range of quality deals for major names in sectors such as oil and gas, renewable energy, financial services, real estate and insurance. And that's not all; you'll also have the opportunity through the wider national team to gain experience on public M&A and ECM work.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

You'll most likely be a newly qualified lawyer keen to specialise in corporate law who has had exposure to quality corporate work during your training contract from a regional or city firm. That said, we'd still be keen to hear from you if you're a corporate lawyer with around one or two years' experience in any of the above. Whatever your experience level you'll possess excellent drafting skills and a sense of commercial pragmatism and equally as important will be your ability to demonstrate a proactive attitude to work, a bright mind and a strong team ethos to help further develop the team's client base.

So what's in it for you?

In return we can offer access to a wide range of transactions working with high calibre clients, in a collaborative and collegiate environment with opportunities to learn and work from leaders in their field.

Our culture is focused on our people - we place real value on personal and professional development. We have a transparent lawyer career framework, supported by a leading edge development programme that helps our lawyers achieve and perform at the highest level.

Our location in Southampton is fantastic, just a five minute walk from Southampton Central station and short stroll to shops and restaurants with offices that are the envy of the firm following an impressive refurbishment.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.

In addition, through our D&I practices and programmes we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed. Visit our D&I page to find out more.
