An exceptional opportunity has arisen for an Employment Solicitor to join a highly successful team.  

Acting for a diverse and impressive client base (corporates, clubs, associations, TV & entertainment celebrities, coaches, players & athletes), the quality of work is excellent. 

Typical instructions include: 

•    Drafting Employment Contracts and Service Agreements
•    Advising on Player transfer and transactional documentation
•    Breach of Contract and enforcement measures
•    Employment issues and representation before Regulatory Bodies
•    Employment Law Tribunal Proceedings

Offering a multi-disciplinary service to clients, you will also enjoy working closely with colleagues in corporate and commercial teams. 

Whilst previous experience of acting for sports and entertainment clients is desirable, it is not essential. You will be need to be able to demonstrate both contentious and non-contentious experience in technical and complex employment law matters. Whilst all applications will be considered, it is likely that your career to date has been with a Legal 100 or boutique Employment Law practice.    

The team is dynamic and supportive allowing high calibre lawyers to flourish in a progressive and client focused environment. Working alongside senior colleagues, who are recognised market leaders, you will receive excellent mentoring, ongoing training and guidance
