Full time, Guildford office
We are looking for a senior solicitor to manage a varied caseload of Company Commercial and Corporate matters. Our clients are all private sector healthcare providers, but are closely aligned to the public sector. Candidates should therefore be familiar with a variety of commercial entities including Partnerships, companies and social enterprises. Whilst relevant sector experience would be an advantage, healthcare related training will be provided and much greater emphasis is placed upon excellent academic and professional credentials. The type of work includes reporting on & negotiating NHS and other healthcare contracts, establishing provider companies and advising on governance, Partnership law advice, Mergers and acquisitions and NHS Regulatory advice. You will often be working as part of a Team alongside property or employment colleagues on larger transactions such as M&A or partnership disputes. An important part of the role will be to work with the firm’s senior management to ‘triage’ new leads received and ensure these are scoped and allocated to the most appropriate resource in the team. This may include non commercial law related matters. You will be a key part of the firm and for the right individual there is the opportunity to move into a partner role in the near future.
You will be expected to demonstrate a strong client service ethos and to have outstanding interpersonal and communication skills. Our clients are based throughout the country, so the majority of our work is done on the phone, by email and increasingly by videoconferencing/skype. You must therefore be able to build strong client relationships even when you do not meet the client face to face. You will manage your own case load independently, and be confident in scoping and pricing work. You can demonstrate a track record of successful delivery, be very commercially minded, have a strong client service ethos and will probably have experience from a top tier law firm.
If you are looking for a new challenge in a renowned firm which offers unique opportunities for senior management level career development, and where you can rapidly gain industry recognition for your expertise, please send your CV to Nils Christiansen
