Full time

Are you a Commercial Lawyer looking for an opportunity to break into the healthcare sector in a specialist firm with a leading reputation nationally for the work that they do? This firm are forward-thinking, innovate and entrepreneurial.

Join the market leader in providing legal advice to the Private Medical industry and help shape the growth of their Commercial Department for years to come. If you are stuck waiting for Partnership, fed up of giving your life to a firm, and do not have freedom or flexibility this could be a great move for you.

The Firm

This specialist practice which has been going for 10+ years is now the single largest sector specialist in Healthcare and moving into its most successful year to date. They have secured a large market share in providing services to private medical institutes. The Lawyers in this practice are widely considered as Sector Specialists and have recently advised the Government in matters concerning the Nations Healthcare.

Alongside private medical institutes they also advise big name medical companies, dentists, and investors. Working alongside this client base the firm is regarded for their work in Property, Partnerships, Commercial, Employment, Regulatory, and Dispute Resolution.

The firm has enjoyed very consistent growth and has strategically hired specialists in core practice areas. Since the firm's incorporation, they have not lost a single fee-earner highlighting unprecedented retention. They have a forward thinking and progressive ethos to work, having brought in external coaches to support the team's development, as well as offering the option of working from home or to a pattern that suits the Solicitor. They are not afraid to promote people to Partnership who have been overlooked meaning this could be an excellent option if you have hit a glass ceiling.

The Role

The firm is currently looking for a Senior Solicitor/Partner with experience in Commercial and Healthcare law.

The nature of this work would include but not be limited to super partnership agreements, GP federating, the commercial aspects of mergers & acquisitions, collaborations with healthcare providers, and knowledge of Integrated Care Contracts (ICC). Knowledge of the Regulatory aspects in Healthcare would also be beneficial although not essential.

It is important to highlight that although the above skillset would stand the applicant in favourable stead, the firm is also dedicated to investing in an ambitious individual and will help to fill any gaps in their knowledge.

The incoming candidate would be expected to help the growth of the Commercial side of the business, will help direct the current team there, and go out and present to current/new clients. There is currently a team of 16 at the firm, and all of them are dedicated to their sector specialism, meaning you will have the support of industry leading experts.
