Commercial Contracts Locum
A new vacancy has arisen with a small-medium niche commercial law firm. Looking for locum cover in August and September – dates to be confirmed but looks to be about 8 weeks – for a solicitor who undertakes commercial contracts, IP/IT, data protection and construction. All non-contentious of course. The firm will look at someone with a generalist commercial contract mix to date, but with some exposure to the other three areas.
Full time or almost full time. Solely remote working – this firm work remotely in any event.
We anticipate the hourly rate range on this one being £50-£60 per hour.
Corporate & M&A Consultant – Remote/London
A new vacancy has arisen with a medium sized London solicitors’ firm looking for a consultant to assist on an hourly rate.
They seek a corporate associate with experience in M&A transactions. Capital markets experience is beneficial. The role would include advising entrepreneurs, large companies and SMEs on all aspects of corporate law, public and private M&A and private equity investment, including
o Company formation and administration of day-to-day corporate compliance tasks
o Directors’ duties
o Share capital (structure, allotment, transfers) and shareholders’ rights
o Share and asset sales and purchases
o Corporate joint ventures
o Corporate reorganisation
o Partnership structures
20-35 hours a week are expected.
Remote working, occasional travel into London anticipated.
Start as and when, but in next 2-4 weeks.
Hourly rate – as a guide we think this one will go for £50-65 per hour. It is highly unlikely to go higher.
