The firm

Shoosmiths - UK Law Firm of the Year Winner at the Legal Week British Legal Awards 2015.

A leading UK law firm with a network of offices from the South Coast to Scotland, working together as one national team. An innovative practice and the first top 100 law firm to achieve “Gold Standard” Investors in People, our values and culture are not just words on our website but are the heartbeat of the firm. The lack of barriers between departments, a real lack of hierarchy, zero tolerance for arrogance and pomposity makes Shoosmiths a fantastic place to work.

The Nottingham based team is looking to bolster its practice with an additional corporate associate.  The work is broad covering all aspects of corporate finance including M&A, joint ventures, re-organisations, venture capital, private equity and capital markets. We pride ourselves in providing the best client experience as well as a collegiate team atmosphere. 

Skills and qualifications

The successful candidate will have trained with a leading city, national or regional firm and be eager to make their mark in a friendly, collegiate, collaborative and award winning team (Law Firm of The Year 2015 – M&A Awards, Legal Week).
