Corporate Finance Solicitors

  • About the team: Our Corporate Finance division is looking for two motivated, commercially astute and ambitious individuals to join their practice.
  • About the role: The bulk of the work is transactional, with a heavy emphasis on private equity, M&A and joint ventures, often with an international flavour.
  • Looking for: For each role, you need sufficient experience to work with increasing autonomy on transactions, while also being a strong team player.
  • Opportunities: The division is an extensive user of IT and development of tools to assist with the handling of the more “process” aspects of the work, freeing up time to concentrate on higher value and more interesting aspects. Extensive training and support is offered.
  • And more: The team works closely with colleagues in the separate banking, insolvency, share schemes and competition teams as required, and the work is uniformly of the highest quality.
