2+ PQE Corporate Role in City Law Firm with Creative Industry clients

Is it possible to be a corporate lawyer AND have a creative soul? Could there really be a job out there that allows you to be both? This role could answer the age-old question, asked by over-worked, under-inspired corporate solicitors throughout the City. Working in a Corporate team in a firm which boasts some of the world’s best known brands as clients, from rising star entrepreneurs to tech innovators, you will have the chance to run your own transactions, be part of a hard working and friendly group and help to build the businesses you have followed for so long from afar.

You need to have excellent academics and have trained and have at least 2 years PQE working in the Corporate team of a leading City law firm. You need to have experience of the majority if not all of the following:

  • general corporate advisory work such as share issues, share buy-backs, internal re-organisations;
  • producing shareholder/joint venture agreements and articles for both owner-managed and corporate owned businesses;
  • the process relating to M&A, equity financing and capital markets transactions;
  • undertaking due diligence and producing the reports on an exceptions basis;
  • the process of verification on a capital markets transaction;
  • producing (if only, a first draft) of basic deal documentation on an equity financing or an M&A transaction, for example, a sale and purchase agreement, articles etc.;
  • a basic understanding of when to consult with other specialists, including – for example -tax, real estate and employment;
  • handling calls with clients without supervision, even if only on a very basic level;
  • acting on transactions with persons based overseas.
