Corporate Associate / Senior Associate
This leading corporate team in Birmingham is growing and looking for lawyers at the Associate and Senior Associate level (0-8 PQE) to join them and assist in delivering the very best client experience across the UK.
Operating as part of a 70 lawyer strong national team, this Birmingham corporate team advises across the full spectrum of corporate advice with a primary focus on M&A and private equity. The team is cohesive, supportive and both with clients and team members highly responsive and focused on obtaining the best outcome. It is ranked first in its categories by both the Chambers Directory and Legal 500 and is widely acknowledged to be one of the very best corporate teams outside the City of London.
Whilst the team does more than its fair share of the best quality local work, the majority of its work is on transactions for national and international clients and much of it is multi-jurisdictional in nature. The team has proven that it has the sectoral and international expertise to attract work of the highest quality. Key sectors for the team are advanced engineering (which includes aerospace and defence), health and life sciences, technology and real estate. Internationally the team leads the firm’s activities in USA, India, Germany and Scandinavia with team members being regular visitors to each of those jurisdictions.
The successful candidate will undertake a wide spectrum of high quality corporate work – principally mergers and acquisitions, private equity, equity capital markets, joint ventures and group restructurings working collaboratively with fellow team members including the five equity partners who lead the team. You will work as part of client teams with the ability to develop long-term trusted relationships, you will work with all of the partners and directors across the range of corporate work-types and you will have the opportunity to develop your own business development initiatives and improve your professional skills. It is essential that you have a solid grounding in Corporate law (commensurate with level of experience) with an appetite for excellent client service and a desire to be the best you can be.
