Our client is one of the top law firms in Leeds and has a national reputation for excellence, and as a result, boasts an impressive client base and an extremely high-quality workload. The department's expertise spans a broad spectrum of commercial law, including outsourcing; framework and supply arrangements; joint ventures, R&D and collaboration agreements; logistics, warehousing, distribution and supply chain management; IT and technology contracts and information technology advice; agency and distributorship agreements; and franchising.

As a member of this successful team, you will be undertaking work that covers the full range of commercial contracting, from a variety of clients including both blue chip companies and household names. Furthermore, the team hardworking and ambitious, and has a working environment designed to allow people to flourish. An individual with a desire to further their own skills, as well as the enthusiasm to help the more junior lawyers develop theirs, would be a good match for this role.

You will have the chance to network with clients and grow the department's presence in the market, making this an excellent opportunity for an individual with an outgoing personality and a passion for client contact.

This is a rare opportunity to step into a team geared up to support someone seeking to develop and grow an already successful IT practice.

The firm is therefore happy to consider individuals who fall outside of this bracket, yet can demonstrate the necessary abilities and enthusiasm for the role.
