Job reference:

A Legal 500 firm in Leicester with a great reputation for quality work and staff retention is in the market for a banking solicitor.

This is an ideal role for someone looking for a different environment to that of a large national or international practice whilst still retaining a quality work load and a competitive package. The firm has incredibly strong corporate and real estate teams, which in turn produces a substantial amount of high-quality banking work. The firm needs a tenacious and experienced banking solicitor to take on this work with a view to develop an entire team in the future.

You will spearhead the banking offering at the firm, working between the top tier ranked corporate and real estate teams, meaning this really is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to make their mark on one of the most highly regarded practices in the region.

The Role:

  • You will manage the banking offering at the firm, working on a varied caseload of predominantly high-quality regional work, including local developments and local corporate deals, but also larger national and international matters.
  • You will be heavily involved in the expansion of the banking department, meaning you have the chance to develop and run a team based on your ideas and shaped by your values.
  • You will be responsible for the marketing and business development of the department, meaning you will be networking with clients and winning new work.
  • Further down the line, you will be responsible for managing the department you have worked to build up.

The Candidate:

  • You will be a specialist in all areas of corporate banking and finance work, acting for banks as well as borrowers and will have particular expertise in acquisition finance and commercial property finance.
  • You will be ready to meet the challenges of this role head on, dedicating your efforts to the success of the department and the firm.
  • You will be eager to take your career to the next level, and see this as a long-term opportunity to make a name for yourself within a highly-regarded firm.


  • As the key figure in this development, you will have the chance to watch the department grow and see your hard work contribute to the success of the firm.
  • If successful, you have the opportunity to become a leading figure not only in the department, but also in the firm itself, with the chance to become involved in deciding the firm's future.
  • Our client offers a competitive salary and attractive benefits package.
