Salary commensurate with experience + discretionary bonus
Ref: 2065 Date Posted: Monday 22 Apr 2024

We are delighted to be working with this innovative law firm to recruit a Corporate Associate for their growing practice.

This is an ideal opportunity for a qualified legal professional either returning to work from a career break, or seeking to continue their career with a greater degree of flexibility and without the pressure and targets that are typical of a more traditional practice environment.

Supporting the Partner and Junior Partner, you will work on a range of transactional and advisory corporate matters, typically in corporate investments and divestments as well as shareholder and funding agreements.    The work includes M&A, share and asset sales and disposals, shareholder arrangements, exit strategies, options, joint ventures and investment arrangements.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting on a wide range of specialist corporate matters (including advising on company and group reorganisations and corporate structures, advising on debt and equity funding arrangements including loading finance for companies)
  • Setting up and managing data rooms and due diligence process for M&A deals
  • Managing your own caseload
  • Undertaking due diligence
  • Working closely as part of a small team
  • Liaising with clients and other professionals

About you:

  • You are a qualified lawyer, ideally with corporate experience
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • You are a superb relationship builder who enjoys working within a small team
  • You are organised and can manage your own time

This is a role that offers much beyond pure remuneration - true flexibility, the opportunity to be part of a supportive team with a flexible and relaxed approach (albeit professional and commercial), and a remote-first and part-time working pattern.

Flexibility: 20 - 30 hours per week
Location: Remote first although you will need to sometimes be available to come into the office in the City of London
Salary: commensurate with experience + discretionary bonus
