Do you want to join one of the most active corporate M&A teams in the South East?
Our corporate team advises clients on share and asset acquisitions and disposals and other investments.
In the six month to the end of June 2017, we will have completed around 35 deals with a total deal value in excess of £100m. We are continuing to grow and we need great lawyers who think like us to help us deliver our goals.
Our transaction team consists of 12 lawyers and 2 paralegals. We have a very strong team ethic, grounded in our non-hierarchical structure. We enjoy what we do and enjoy being part of a team. We believe everyone should feel valued, and we want our people to growth with us and share in our success.
Our recent growth means we are now looking to add to our team and are looking to recruit 2 additional lawyers.
1. Corporate Lawyer – Due diligence and transaction support
Our first role requires some experience of carrying out due diligence processes and operating within the context of a corporate deal. We would expect you to have a good grasp of raising due diligence enquiries, reviewing the responses and supporting documents and producing useful reports. In addition, we are looking for good communicators who can work in a team context, manage processes and report internally on risks and issues that need to be addressed in transaction documents.
2. Corporate Lawyer – Transaction lead
For the second role, we are looking for a deal leader – the primary point of contact for clients and other law firms on deals. We see deals as projects, and we like to think of our lead lawyers as project managers and problem solvers. Understanding the outcomes clients want to achieve and managing the process from beginning to end. Identifying risks, putting them in context for clients and addressing them where needed. People who spot issues quickly, and navigate through them just as easily. Great communicators, who are well organised and driven by getting things done – and done well. Of course, we don’t expect this without support, and the support is always there from the rest of the team when needed.
