Commercial Partner

  • £70000 - £130000 per annum
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge or perhaps looking for a new role to make that step towards partnership or with a clear run at it? If you have a track record of developing work, or perhaps a following of clients and are looking to join a firm that has untapped potential then this could be the role for you.

An opportunity has arisen for a Commercial Partner in a strong regional firm in Leeds. Our client is based in Leeds city centre and have an excellent reputation as being an 'employer of choice'.

They have been established for over 30 years and are recognised as being one of the top 100 firms in the North, being recognised across a wide range of commercial disciplines by the Legal 500 and Chambers guides.

The firms' client base is varied ranging from SMEs to larger national companies that are regional, national and international. They have a considerable reputation and contacts within the technology sector, and ae keen to speak to people with a particular interest in this.

They not only attend and sponsor events within the sector but also run extremely well attended seminars and recognised awards that they run.

They could recruit either :

A mid-level Solicitor - someone with a strong base of commercial experience and looking for a practice that will offer them the opportunity to immerse themselves in the clients and be happy to get to know the clients and spend time with them. The firm would work with you to help you develop your client skills both from a technical and a relationship perspective, with a view to you becoming a go to contact for them and over time taking a leadership role with them. There are clear partnership opportunities, and the firm would be committed to developing you in this direction.

A Senior / Partner Level Solicitor - as you would expect, if they recruit at a more senior level they would be looking not only for established technical expertise but also a proven track record of dealing with clients. Ideally you will have a contact base, or a history of having generated work within your existing practice as they would be looking for you to get involved in this alongside the existing Partner and in conjunction with the wider office, and with the help of their BD and marketing team.

Whatever your level of experience, there is plenty of opportunity. They handle interesting work and there are a lot of internal opportunities that they are not able to capitalise upon at the moment, put simply they just don't have the manpower to do so. If you are looking to push your career forward this could be an excellent option.

Whatever your level you will find a collegiate environment, not just within the team but also across the office, you will also find a firm that is experiencing year on year growth, and one that respects and looks after their clients. It's also a firm that likes to have fun and create a positive and enjoyable working environment. They offer strong back-office support and infrastructure; in fact, it is akin to much larger firms but within an environment where you contribution will be visible and rewarded.

Remuneration will obviously depend on your level and what you have to offer, however this is an important piece of recruitment for them and they will be highly competitive.
