Corporate Lawyers

To support our ongoing growth, we are looking for experienced Solicitors to join our dynamic Corporate and Commercial team.

Since 2002 Outset has been delivering professional services differently. We have always taken pleasure in challenging the status quo, constantly looking for a better way to do things and delivering the best value we can.

We strongly believe the traditional ways of providing legal advice are outdated and no longer suit the needs of the fast-paced business world in which we operate today. Our clients often need support in other areas so we've built Outset around these requirements, providing a fully integrated service.

In addition to Corporate and Commercial Law, we offer innovative solutions and practical application across Property and Employment, HR consultancy and Health and Safety. We never provide just a list of options and masses of paperwork, instead, we add real value through suggestions and recommendations that are constructive, balanced and focused on achieving the best outcome.

We are looking for two additional lawyers to join one of the most active Corporate M&A teams in the South East. We are looking for people who share our value and strong team ethic, to help us deliver our goals. If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
