Job Description

The Firm

Our client has a small practice Southside on the City fringe consisting of approximately 12 staff. This is a growing firm that embraces a friendly and supportive environment. They offer referral work, career progression and benefits in a highly flexible environment that fosters personal and professional development.

The Role

An opportunity has become available for a senior commercial lawyer to join our client's firm and build their own practice area. Our client is prepared to pay a salary, but you would need to have either a small client base or a strong referral network to build and develop the firm's Commercial practice.

This is a terrific opportunity for someone, with at least 5 years' experience in commercial law to take the next step in their career and join us as a Special Counsel or Senior Associate depending on experience.

In this role, you can dictate the hours you work as long as targets are achieved. This role would suit a sole practitioner that is looking for the support and network of a growing firm or a senior lawyer with their own client base that is wanting to be more independent and grow their own space.

About You

You will possess a minimum of 5 years' PAE in commercial law. You will have a commercial approach and the passion and desire to continue to develop your practice and help the firm to continue its growth path and achieve its goals for this team. A small fee base or proof of substantial network for referrals is necessary.

The ability to develop strong client relationships is also essential.


  • Attractive remuneration package
  • Substantial bonus scheme
  • Flexible hours and work from home a few days option
  • Client referrals
