Due to continued success and expansion, they wish to hire a fully-qualified, part-time sole counsel with at least 5 years' PQE, who will handle a range of commercial and M&A transactions and will provide strategic, senior-level commercial advice.
Reporting into the directors of the business, the role will form a conduit between their external advisers, customers and clients and their own business decision-makers.
The part-time sole counsel will enjoy varied and challenging work, including:

  • Transacting and advising upon commercial property leases

  • Managing the Legal P&L budget with a focus on reducing external spend.
To be considered for this role, you will be a qualified UK solicitor with solid private practice training and prior in-house experience. You must also have experience handling acquisitions as the company has big growth plans over the next 12 months.

You will have impeccable communication and negotiation skills, with strong attention to detail and inscrutable commercial nous.
