Job Description

Maclay Murray & Spens is advertising for a Solicitor to join its London Corporate and Financial Services team.

The candidate should have at least 2 years PQE corporate law experience, and beyond that we're interested in the breadth of work the candidate has been involved in (and its match to our own practice below), the fit with our team (detailed below), and in employing a bright, motivated individual with the ambition to help grow our business.

Our London corporate and financial services practice is a boutique corporate, funds and fintech offering. We are involved in a wide mix of general corporate advice, venture capital, private and public M&A and capital markets work, with a focus on the mid-market. A fair bit of this work is focussed on clients in our firm's main sectors: in particular, financial services, leisure and hospitality and real estate. The funds practice is a mix of listed, retail and alternative funds work, for asset managers large and small. And our fintech practice is built on a top-ranked payments business, along with strong experience in the peer-to-peer space, insurtech and robo-advice.

The team is headed by two partners, two directors and a senior associate, with a variety of practices, and the successful candidate would work with all these senior individuals. We also work closely with our Scottish colleagues, in a corporate practice represented across our offices by circa 40 lawyers. And we work regularly with our tax, banking, employment, real estate and IP colleagues, most of whom sit closely around us in our London office, of circa 50 lawyers. The team, the London office and our firm is a friendly and very collegiate offering. We work hard together, we work with our clients, and we enjoy it.
