Our Client is one of the UK's leading full service law firms, with offices in London and the South East who have a new position in Oxford which is an excellent career opportunity for the right individual.

Your experience will probably have been acquired at a leading national, regional or city firm where you have been involved in good quality general commercial work (including purchase and sale conditions, manufacturing, distribution and agency arrangements) and ideally IP, IT and outsourcing work. If you have had exposure to good quality corporate transactional work this would be an advantage.

They plan to recruit a senior solicitor /associate solicitor who can take the lead in developing the many existing opportunities within our client base and then grow a practice by using their own network to generate new instructions. Whilst not a "partner designate role" there is no doubt that the route to partnership is clear and the right person will have our total support in gaining promotion to partnership on merit.

You must enjoy practice development and have a successful track record of generating work in your own right. If you already have strong connections in the Oxford/Thames Valley business community so much the better.
