A new opportunity has been created in Edinburgh for an Associate with around 6-9 years of relevant PQE to join this leading independent Scottish Law firm and be part of the award-winning and top tier Corporate Team.

The work is always interesting, seldom straightforward and you will need to be able to understand and articulate the commercial reasons behind the legal work you will be doing. You will work closely with existing clients and also be part of the continuing efforts of the team to win new clients and business.

As part of the team, you will be exposed to a wide range of high quality corporate and commercial matters including mergers and acquisitions, investments and complex private equity deals. Their clients come from a broad range of industry sectors and they handle all types of corporate transactions for UK and international clients, often co-ordinating multi-jurisdictional teams. This experienced team acts for buyers and sellers, equity providers, management teams and targets. The full service offering ensures that all aspects of the transaction are covered from investment to exit including finance, funding arrangements, tax and employment. There will also be opportunities to work on AIM and capital markets deals.

You will take the lead on managing transactions, drafting main transaction documents as well as supervision of others within the team, in order to deliver exceptional service and results for clients. In addition to general mergers and acquisitions, private equity and corporate work, you will have a strong
interest in, and some understanding of, corporate structures and partnerships, cross border joint ventures and corporate reorganisations relative to groups of companies.
