Commercial Partner - No Following Needed
We are working with a Legal 500 West Midlands Law Firm
Looking for a Commercial Partner - no client following needed
About Our Client
A West Midlands based law firm.
This is an opportunity for somebody to join a busy commercial team as a Commercial Partner. There is succession planning with the department, so the firm is able to bring in the right person as a Partner without the need for a client following.
You could be a Senior Associate who is frustrated with a ceiling in their current law firm or an existing Partner who is looking to join a leading commercial practice and benefit from the excellent existing client base and help build upon this.
The firm are looking for somebody who will be able to grab the opportunity by offering a first class service to existing clients but also help develop the department through a combination of internal and external networking.
The firm is looking for somebody who is ambitious and would be interested in leading from the front to help grow the department. The role would not suit a lawyer who just wants to draft commercial work but steer away from business development and client networking.
There is a very strong corporate offering which currently feeds a mix of commercial work to the team. With the right person, there is the potential for this workload to significantly increase.
The firm would be interested in speaking to Senior Associates (who are possibly at a large Birmingham practice but unable to see a route to Partnership in the next 2-3 years) or Partner who has a track record of managing others and has the appetite to grow a team.
You would be busy from day one. This is not an opportunity which would require months of work to get up and running - the work is already there and the client base has the potential to make the commercial team even busier.
The firm has a good work/life balance and embraces agile working etc.
The Successful Applicant
It's likely that you will either be a Senior Associate with at least 6/7y PQE or an existing Commercial Partner.
A client following is not needed but you must have first class client care skills and the ability to build relationships with key existing and future clients.
Our client will consider candidates with a range of PQE.
What's on Offer
Competitive salary and Partnership for the right candidate.
