Vacancies for business solicitors

Vacancies for business solicitors

We are keen to talk to experienced business solicitors with a genuine aptitude for working with small and medium sized businesses, providing practical legal advice and able to build a following.

If you would like the freedom to do a fantastic job for your clients in an environment that truly rewards your hard work and success, we’d like to talk to you.

Cousins Business Law offers:

  • Direct financial rewards – you are paid for work done and bills paid. You get a percentage share of whatever the client pays. The more you bill, the more you receive.
  • Total flexi-time - as long as the clients are happy, you choose when and where you work.
  • Flexibility around holidays and family commitments – we believe that real professionals should be trusted and left to do their work when they decide.
  • Great support from and direct access to the senior partner.
  • The option to work from home and avoid the commute.

Solicitor Vacancies

Applications from solicitors with at least 6 years’ experience and a strong following of clients, in any area of business law, are welcomed.

With technical ability that is beyond reproach, you will have a real understanding of SME and family-owned businesses, and must possess strong client development and networking skills. You will be a confident, self-motivated lawyer who enjoys working as part of an integrated team but who thrives in an autonomous environment.

You will need:

  • Excellent legal skills but also the ability to advise on the practical implications of the law
  • Networking and business development skills
  • Exceptional client care abilities and a recognition that delivering excellent service brings many rewards in terms of repeat work, referrals and recommendations
  • A real understanding of the wider business issues facing SME clients
  • The ability to talk and draft in plain English and explain legal jargon
  • IT literacy, the ability to use MS Word & Outlook, produce own documents and maintain own client files
  • To be self motivated and well organised and not be reliant upon a support team to deliver results
  • To be professional and competent but friendly and relaxed with clients
