Company: FARRAR LEVIN LEGAL RECRUITMENT
Job Type: Permanent, FullTime
Well-regarded law firm in London is looking to recruit a Charities Senior Associate/ Partner who will take a leading role in further developing the firm’s Charity and Not-for-Profit team. This is a unique opportunity for the right candidate to lead and develop a team of lawyers specialising in this sector. The firm already has a significant presence in the sector and long-established relationships and partnerships with charities and 3rd sector organisations across the UK. In order to develop further, the team is seeking to recruit an ambitious and dynamic lawyer who can enhance and lead the firm’s offering to this sector by providing expert advice on governance, constitutional and incorporation issues. The firm is looking to recruit an individual who has significant experience of advising charities and not-for-profit organisations on their formation, choosing appropriate legal structures, registration with the charity commission, and mergers, along with providing ongoing regulatory and governance advice. This expertise will complement the skills of other specialists already working for the firms’ clients in this sector. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the charity and not-for-profit sector as well as a track record of building effective relationships with clients, partner organisations and membership bodies. Their commitment to the sector will be clear, and evidenced through their CPD record, engagement with sector-specific conferences and forums, and added-value they have offered to clients. You may already be an established partner who has built a reputation and client following in the sector. However, you might equally be an ambitious Senior Associate looking to take the next step in your career and who could thrive in an environment where you are given substantial freedom and support in a sector which is of strategic importance to the firm. This firm can provide the ideal opportunity for an ambitious lawyer to develop a market-leading charity and not-for-profit practice in the years ahead.
