Overview of the role
Broad caseload of Commercial matters
They are ideally looking for someone who has at least 3 or 4 years PQE with a strong background in commercial and/or IT law, however this is a guideline and candidates who fall outside of this bracket are strongly encouraged to apply.
Whilst it is a highly supportive team they are keen to recruit someone who is capable of taking on some of their own work with minimal supervision but who is also happy working within a team on other, really substantial, matters
This is a close knit team, they offer plenty of support with the work and in our experience people settle quickly into the team and firm as a whole
The firm have a really holistic approach to client and the management of their relationships, they don't work in strictly defined silos and consequently they avoid a lot of the politics that can sometimes prevail within practice
This is an excellent opportunity and offers real prospects for career development.
