Job Title Corporate Associate
Job Location London
Opening Date 28-Sep-2021
Description

We are seeking a lawyer with 3 to 4 years PQE to work in our Corporate Group. The position will involve a broad and varied range of corporate work for clients who are mainly in the media, technology, entertainment and communications industries. We act for corporates (both private and public), entrepreneurs, intermediaries, investors and owner-managers in these industries (particularly technology, TV, radio, interactive entertainment, music, theatre and digital media).

The successful candidate should have an outstanding academic record, a good training and hands-on transactional corporate experience. They should be ambitious and be keen to take on responsibility and run their own caseload, as their work will involve a mix of a relatively high degree of responsibility for smaller transactions and working as a senior member of a team on larger ones.

As well as good technical skills, the successful candidate will need the right interpersonal skills, and commercial sense, both to run and motivate internal teams and to relate well to a diverse range of clients. There will be substantial direct contact with clients from the start.

Most of the firm's partners are consistently recognised as leaders in their fields of practice, and the Corporate Group is no exception. The successful candidate should expect to work with all of the partners within the group.

Recent work of the group includes:

  • Advised Take-Two Interactive on its public takeover offer for AIM-listed Codemasters plc.
  • Advised digital transformation services provider The Panoply Holdings plc on its AIM IPO and on numerous subsequent acquisitions.
  • Advised global savings and investments technology platform provider, Smart Pension, on its £165m Series D funding
