Legal, Legal & Consultancy
0 - 1 year

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.
