Job Description

Associate - Corporate

     

Corporate Associate (3-5 PQE)

Michelmores is a 65 partner full service law firm with a history rooted in the South West of the UK. With our headquarters in a large modern office based in Exeter – with many of the partners benefitting from previous experience gained at London and international law firms - Michelmores continues to expand on the back of client needs, with fast-growing offices in both London and Bristol. We advise clients across the UK and internationally across all areas of the law, focusing our sector expertise on finance and investment, private wealth and real estate.

Our open and collegiate culture is a recognised strength by both clients and employees. We are proud of our culture, which has helped to foster a dynamic law firm. Our collegiate style allows us to work well as a team and towards our common aim of delivering exceptional client service.

The London office is driving our growing international-focused practice. From prestigious offices in the New Street Square legal hub in the City, our London based team advices on the type and size of transactions that would be more usual of a much larger, international firm. Whether it is capital markets, trade finance, anti trust, private equity, distressed restructuring, international investment or dispute arbitration/litigation – the Michelmores London team has the experience.

The Michelmores name and the quality of our service is gaining increasing awareness in London and we are perfectly placed to provide our lawyers the platform necessary to win new clients through the provision of a high quality service whist offering extremely competitive pricing.

The role:

Our London Corporate team has an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and talented lawyer to join the practice working in our growing, enthusiastic and hard-working London office, working as part of an experienced and growing, entrepreneurial team. You will have the opportunity to further expand your knowledge with the benefit of knowledge resources and support of a quality found in top 20 firms so as to allow you to build on your experience in this friendly and supportive team. The opportunity also offers a real opportunity for career progression.

The successful candidate will handle a variety of medium to large scale deals working with a diverse client base. The team advises on a full range of corporate work including:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions – primarily private transactions but some experience of Blue Book work would be an advantage (but not necessary)
  • UK capital markets – particularly AIM (but also Main Market)
  • Private equity and Venture capital – acting for investors, investee companies and management teams
  • International investment – we have a recognised emerging markets practice, acting for funds, institutions, government agencies and impact investors in some of the most challenging frontier markets.

The candidate:

Whilst a real willingness to be part of an offering where quality of service is at the absolute heart of the team’s practice is a pre-requisite, the ideal candidate will also have a solid grounding in corporate law from a recognised corporate team at a London, regional or national firm. The successful candidate is likely to either demonstrate experience in at least two of these areas or otherwise show enthusiasm and general desire to become experienced in short order.

Experience Required: 

  • 3-5 years' post-qualification experience in a broad range of corporate transactions
  • Commitment to delivering a high level of client service (both to internal and external clients)
  • Technically strong
  • Ambition to play a part in achieving further success
  • Enthusiastic team player
  • Proactive, and willing to take responsibility
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • Strong academics
  • Excellent communication skills

You will be able to build effective and positive client relationships quickly and fully embrace the importance of client service.

This is a great opportunity to join a progressive and forward thinking firm where clients recommend us because of the quality of our people and the depth of experience across the whole team. This experience gives real weight at the commercial pressure points of a deal, and has resulted in a reputation in the market for getting deals done.   

*No agencies please - any agency assistance will be via invitation only. Please note any speculative candidates submitted via agencies without invitation will not be considered as represented by the agent.
