A new vacancy has arisen with a small but specialist niche commercial practice based in Oxfordshire. This is the personal practice of a former senior partner with a large Reading firm who now undertakes company commercial work via his own company (and also handles a commercial property caseload for a related practice).
He is looking for a company commercial solicitor from a private practice background who can assist on an interim as follows:
1. Provide annual leave locum cover for Monday 21st May to Monday 11th June
2. Provide ongoing assistance on an ad hoc basis as and when needed.
He is very busy at the moment and would like to develop a relationship with someone able to give him capacity as and when required. He gave me a few examples of the sort of work he undertakes: sale of petrol station, sublease, share option scheme advice, share sales, commercial leases, partnership agreements, secondment agreement, sale of development site for housing, promotion agreement. Very mixed bag of general commercial work.
The firm is based equidistant from Oxford and Reading in a small village near Didcot, but you don’t need to be working from their office necessarily – from home would be fine.
