My client is synonymous with high profile, and value Corporate deals throughout the UK. This could be PE, VC or general M&A related. Something you'd expect from a highly ranked team in the legal directories for corporate law.


The good news is they are looking to add to their team in the Thames Valley and it could be a brilliant opportunity for you to join a really collegiate team and have high levels of responsibility, giving you great opportunities to develop and progress.


This team have a good structure locally, as well as throughout the wider corporate group, with lots of experience for you to pull on to learn from as you work directly with clients on a range of deals. The work here is really varied to include M&A, Private Equity and Venture Capital. They are acting for sellers and buyers, with it predominantly being 'buy and builds' on the buy side. These are notable deals too. The firm has recently completed its first £1bn deal and is doing lots of £100m+ and regularly £200m+. Alongside that there are also lots of £5m-£50m deals for the associates in the team to get very hands on with. Not only that but while UK based a lot of their deals will have an international element. So work is interesting and there are lots of other specialists on hand within other practice areas to give advice and assist on deals when you need it.


Culturally this team (and firm) are great. Having already been a big believer in agile working pre pandemic, they have adopted it even further since and maintain a good work life balance - something demonstrated by their very reasonable billing target. They always keep the team at the heart of everything they do too. This is a social team that work well together and always make sure there is time to come together. In fact this culture is what will see you get 'hands on' with a good variety of work that you are unlikely to see anywhere else.


You should be a qualified solicitor with a minimum of 1PQE. Experience working in a regional or London practice where you have had good exposure to corporate work and be looking for a team to join offering good prospects for quick progression with highly competitive salary and a work life balance.
