One of the largest teams of lawyers in the South outside London, independently recognised as one of the UK's leading national law firms
This new position exists for a technically strong, personable and ambitious lawyer, looking to pursue a career in corporate finance in the long term with one of the top corporate finance practices in the South East outside London.
The corporate finance team is part of the company commercial group, one of the main lawyer groups within the firm. In addition to corporate finance the group has specialist teams in banking and finance, commercial and competition.
The company commercial group is one of the largest practices in the South East outside London and is rated in the top tiers of both Chambers and Legal 500.
The work of the team is diverse but key areas are:
Mergers and Acquisitions (both buy side and sell side)
Venture capital and private equity (sponsor and management team roles)
Fundraising and equity and capital markets
General corporate advisory
Accelerated M & A, restructuring and insolvency
Often cases have an international flavour and the team frequently works with law firms in other jurisdictions.
Candidates should have drive and an enthusiasm for a broad diet of corporate finance work but experience in all of the above areas is not required and all team members have areas of greater specialisation with the opportunity to become a "go to" lawyer in areas of particular interest.
An appetite for business development will be a definite advantage.
Successful candidates are also likely to be strong team players with good inter-personal skills, to have strong academics and high quality experience - typically with a major City or leading national/regional practice - and to possess excellent communication and negotiation skills.
First-class support and learning and development opportunities are provided and early responsibility is offered.
