Job Description

THE FIRM

A long established and full-service City law firm.

The firm's clients range from blue chips to private individuals and entrepreneurs as well as charities, housing associations and Regulators.

THE ROLE

Within a team known for its work with "not for profit" clients including housing associations, local authorities, regulatory bodies and charities.

As a result, the values and ethos of the team are different from other mainstream corporate practices.

Working alongside predominantly the Social Housing corporate and banking team the caseload will include:

Mergers & Acquisitions, typically involving a mix of large housing groups (comprising charities and non-charities) some of whom will be regulated, and others will be standard trading companies.

Corporate governance; this involves working alongside senior executive officers and their non-executive boards.

Corporate matters include the creation of new "for profit" housing bodies for some of the UK's largest investors in housing.

ABOUT YOU

A solicitor with c 3-5pqe, and strong academics, you will have a Company/Commercial background, and ideally corporate governance charity experience.

Organised, proactive and with good drafting skills, you will enjoy assisting clients on managing large transformative projects alongside the wider deal team, other consultants and advisers.

An empathy with the aims of the social housing/not for profit sector would be helpful.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy. Please note our advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
