They team operates at a high level, their lawyers mainly being from the national Leeds firms, meaning that there will be leading experts within the team who you can learn from or work with depending upon your level of experience, however they are very open to recruiting from smaller firms and training someone providing they can see that the desire is there for someone to operate at the top of their profession.

The Candidate

- You will need to be a friendly and down to earth individual who can create a great rapport with both clients and colleagues.

- Along with having a sound knowledge of this area of law, you should also possess commercial acumen and demonstrate a bright, enquiring approach.

- Our client is relatively open minded about PQE but is it likely that you will have between 3-6 years PQE, they are really happy to invest in the professional development of any lawyer that joins them.


- You will receive fantastic support from an experienced and friendly team who will be genuinely invested in your career development and progression.

- There is fantastic support from back office and marketing teams, as well as first rate training - both classroom and on the job.

- The firm have fantastic offices which are centrally located.
