Commercial Lawyer Role
Associate/ Senior associate
Upwards of 2 PQE
Top 60 Law Firm
Central London
Broad commercial contracts work - client facing role


A Top 60 London firm are looking to hire an Associate or Senior Associate into their highly regarded Commercial team in London. You will advise on high quality work and you will get an opportunity to provide clients with a holistic view on their issues in a style that can be compared to working as an in-house lawyer within practice because of this well rounded approach to problem solving. You will need to be good at problem solving and dealing directly with clients in tackling issues that are developing at the forefront of contract and technical work.
The bulk of the work that this team handles is commercial contract work - although often at the forefront of developing law in these matters. The other core area that you will need to have experience in is data protection, although this area is very much secondary to the core commercial contracts focus in the firm. The team acts for the pathology business that currently ranks as the leading business in Europe in this area, other clients sit in the entertainment and media sectors. The work is vast and broad and touches on some very exciting cutting edge industries.
The team's experience spans a range of commercial contracts knowledge providing tailored advice in servicing clients as entrepreneurs, multinational corporations, charities, major public bodies, and also in the education, healthcare, transport and retail sectors. You are likely to be an Associate or Senior Associate working with a well regarded commercial team in London or perhaps an in house lawyer with some experience of operating in a "billings" driven environment.
The culture at this firm very much stands out, which has been cultivated into a friendly, open and inclusive environment. There is a positive emphasis on work life balance too, and progression opportunity for fee earners. There will be good flexibility for home working. Opportunities such as this are rare within the commercial market so please do apply as directed if you would be interested or contact Catherine Knowles at Search Legal for more information on 0203 151 2151.
