  • Construction - acting for £100m turn over construction business, plus others
  • Motor - acting for a large motor sales company
  • Media - acting for a worldwide co-corporation

  • Ideally with experience of mentoring and supervising junior staff


This is a crucial hire for this business, with succession planning being a major consideration. As such, you can be assured of a clear career path, with significant investment from the firm to provide you with the necessary skills and support.

You will enjoy excellent administrative support along with junior Lawyers in the team.

This firm pride themselves on their staff-centric culture. They offer a generous benefits package including generous holiday allowance (with the option to buy/sell annual leave), pension, regular staff events, a bonus structure, discounted shopping, on-going CPD budget etc.
