Job Description

Our client is a strong national firm and they are looking for a 2-10 PQE to join the Birmingham office in the Tax team

The work of the tax team can broadly be divided into four categories:

Corporate: a significant proportion of our work involves supporting our national team of over 100 corporate lawyers. We commonly advise on the tax implications of private equity transactions and transaction structuring, M&A, tax planning for management teams, reorganisations and restructuring including debt restructuring and demergers and advice on joint venture projects.

Venture capital: we have one of the UK's leading VCT/EIS tax practices and, as such, a significant proportion of our time is dedicated to advising investors and, in some cases, individual shareholders on their qualifying investments. We structure and restructure investments to ensure compliance and frequently engage with HMRC to seek advance assurances and to pre-empt the impact of the continuously evolving legislative framework in this area.

Real estate: as a firm we employ over 200 real estate practitioners. We support those practitioners by advising on SDLT, LBTT, VAT, capital allowances and the CIS. We have a large number of developer clients whom we structure development transactions for, giving rise to complex real estate project based tax issues.

Employee incentives: we design and implement a broad range of employee incentivisation schemes. We also advise on the exercise and restructuring of those schemes in the context of M&A and private equity deal structuring.

The role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Associate or Senior Associate to join our collegiate and highly respected tax team. This role offers an excellent opportunity for the successful individual to become involved in a broad range of tax issues.

The ideal candidate will ideally have gained post qualified experience at either a leading City or regional practice and be able to demonstrate knowledge in some or all of the above areas.

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.
