Our law firm client has a national and international network of offices and is committed to further growth in its busy London corporate team.


The firm can happily accommodate general corporate M&A lawyers or those with more specialist skills in areas such as ECM and PE. Of particular interest are those partners, or senior lawyers on the cusp of partnership, with sector expertise that match the firm, being financial services, technology, retail and property.


The partners in London have a competitive advantage in terms of pricing on deals due to the really impressive internal systems and technology in place and also gain the benefit of an international network with work, contacts and instructions flowing in each direction between offices.


The corporate department across the firm have had an incredibly busy 6 months and the London team in particular has secured new mandates while continuing to deepen relationships with existing clients. The majority of deals are within the mid-market and the firm is well ranked in the directories for transactions of this size. The culture is based strongly around team working rather than individual financial metrics and this certainly helps with the cohesive and collaborative nature of the team, with no sharp elbows and a genuine willingness to integrate new laterals and get them up and running quickly.


The forward thinking HoD in London has a clear growth strategy for the department and says the focus, certainly at more junior partner levels, is on cultural fit and technical ability rather than concrete following. Having said which it will be important to show that you have a decent commercial network in areas (as above) that will fit well with the firm.
