They are a leading national practice with an excellent client base who contend with the larger international firms; they have achieved this by hiring entrepreneurial Partners looking to bring their experience to a leading Top 200 UK firm.

The Firm

The firm has grown significantly over the past few years and shows no signs of stopping with two recent acquisitions, increasing them to over 500 employees across the country.

The team act for employers (Corporates and High net worth individuals), Construction professionals, Contractors and sub-contractors and the successful candidate can look forward to a broad range of quality work across various sectors.
This rapidly expanding firm wants to hear from ambitious Senior Lawyers looking to progress their career - opportunities for Partnership later down the line will be readily available for the right candidates.

Requirements
