Corporate Solicitor - Carlisle and Newcastle

Our award winning Corporate department is looking to strengthen its team with the recruitment of a Corporate lawyer to assist with its busy workload and strategic expansion. 

We have a rare opportunity for a solicitor ideally with 2-5 years PQE (although we would be open to receive applications from other PQE levels) to join Cumbria’s leading Corporate team, with a thriving M&A practice and reputation for excellence.  The successful candidate may work from either or both of our Carlisle and Newcastle offices - there is flexibility in this aspect of the role. 

Main duties

You will be involved in a broad range of Corporate work, but principally M&A transactions, joint venture and shareholders’ agreements, advice on corporate governance, partnership matters, and general commercial advice.  The focus will be advising the team’s impressive roster of business clients.   

You will have early exposure to market leading transactions working with our high quality client base.  You will be expected to run your own caseload and will be supervised as necessary, in accordance with your level of PQE.

In return we offer the opportunity to be part of a forward-thinking firm, a great working environment, clear progression routes, a competitive salary and additional benefits.

If this role is right role for you and you are ready to join our team, please send a copy of your CV with a covering letter to Kate Sowerby (HR Officer) at yourfuture@burnetts.co.uk.
