We are looking for solicitors to join BWB’s top ranked Charity and Social Enterprise practice.
Widely regarded as a pioneering firm, our approach is strategic, practical, commercial and characterised by a willingness and ability to challenge and innovate.
Our clients include small grassroots organisations, household name charities, international NGOs, family and corporate foundations as well as charities that position themselves as social enterprises due to their commercial activities. Their work covers every area of activity including children and young people, education, the arts, disability, animal welfare, the environment, human rights, social enterprise, social finance and faith.
As the only UK law firm to be independently certified as a B Corporation, our commitment to positive social impact lies at the very heart of our business. We are a firm for people creating positive impact and we have an agreed set of values consistent with our purpose, ensuring that we provide a uniquely friendly, supportive and flexible environment.
To support our growth we are seeking solicitors with 0 – 1 years PQE who are attuned to our purpose and values. Our practice is extremely diverse, including establishment and charity registration, regulatory issues, fundraising, grants, mergers, incorporations, spin-outs, governance, commercial contracts, trusts, social finance, data privacy, elections and campaigning. Accordingly we offer opportunities to undertake both advisory and transactional work at the very cutting edge of charity and social enterprise law.
We encourage junior lawyers to pursue their personal interests through their practice, take on early responsibility, contribute to business development and work cross-departmentally through our wide range of exceptionally strong sector groups.
Whilst prior experience in charity and social enterprise law would be helpful, we welcome applications from general commercial lawyers seeking to move into this area and offer a comprehensive training programme, supported by a specialist PSL team.
