We are looking for an ambitious individual who has, during training and since qualifying, been a supportive member of the Corporate Team in a law firm and is looking to take the next step in developing their career as a Corporate Solicitor.
You will have strong corporate experience and good academics. The successful candidate will be working alongside experienced Solicitors and Partners dealing with company sales, acquisitions, investments, demergers, capital reductions and shareholder and regulatory matters such as shareholder agreements, LLP agreements, tax and other restructuring.
We also undertake share scheme work and secured lending, so experience of dealing with EMI schemes and/or other HMRC approved share schemes and or dealing with loan and security documentation would be preferable but is not essential as we are happy to train the right candidate in these areas.
We have a very strong corporate client base and a high quality corporate workload and typically deal with transactions in the £2 – £20 million range. Examples of our client base and the work we have undertaken for them can be found on our website.
The current corporate team is very commercially focused and in tune with our client needs, as well as having a good working knowledge of the regulatory, taxation and accounting issues that our clients face.
As a Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 ranked Law Firm, as well as being Highly Commended in the Boutique Firm of the Year category in The Lawyer 2021 Awards, we offer a unique depth of expertise, attracting regional, national and international clients and engage in top quality work at a level unusual for a firm of our size.
The role is based at our office in Marlow, yet we offer genuine flexibility and agile working with the option to work part of the week in the office and part at home. We pay competitively and have a comprehensive benefits package such as a bonus scheme, BUPA membership, matched contributions to pension, life insurance, professional memberships and 5 weeks holiday.
From day one at Moorcrofts, there is a clear career path set out for our lawyers, with well-defined targets. We invest heavily in our lawyers to ensure that they develop through the firm and can build their careers with us.
