About The Role

The role
As a paralegal in our busy corporate team, you will be based at our Nottingham office working closely with our East Midlands Partners. The successful candidate will gain exposure and be given the opportunity to assist Partners, Senior Associates, and the wider national team on a variety of M&A, capital markets and private equity (to name a few) corporate transactions and undertake company secretarial and management company work for corporates.

Working within the team, there is the opportunity to broaden expertise and learning and develop skills with a view to assuming greater levels of responsibility.

The team
Our Corporate team continues to thrive and with an impressive client list it is the perfect home for ambitious corporate lawyers to develop their career.

With a team of 70 corporate lawyers nationally, we advise clients on all types of corporate activity across the UK. Our Corporate team has been recognised nationally including:
  • Corporate Law Firm of the Year Insider Media Dealmakers Awards 2022
  • Professional Services Firm of the Year Birmingham Post Business Awards 2021 (Birmingham)
  • Deal of the Year (£20m+) Insider Media Dealmakers Awards 2021 (Thames Valley)
  • International Deal of the Year Insider Media Dealmakers Awards 2021 (Midlands)
  • SME Deal of the Year Insider Media Dealmakers Awards 2021 (Midlands)
  • The Times Best Law Firms 2022 commended for "Company & Commercial" and "Banking & Finance" (National)

The structure of our highly accomplished national team enables us to offer a partner lead approach on every transaction. Locally in the Birmingham team, you will join a team of Partners, Senior Associates, Associates and Solicitors that all work collaboratively across the Corporate Unit.

The corporate team provide a nurturing and supportive environment and has opportunity for genuine long term partnership progression prospects. Several of our successfully promoted partners either completed their training with Gateley or joined at various levels of their career. There is a clear progression path paved for all levels of lawyers to succeed and become a part of our business.

We consistently act as trusted advisers for clients in sectors as diverse as manufacturing and retail, recruitment, and education. Some of our key clients that we have recently worked with include:
  • Gymshark
  • LDC
  • Walsall FC
  • North Edge
  • Clowes Developments (UK) LTD
  • Franchise Brands PLC

The person
Our successful candidate will ideally have a degree in law or will have completed the GDL and will ideally have passed the LPC or be working towards a post-graduate legal qualification. This would be a perfect opportunity for an ambitious candidate who wishes to progress long term with the firm. Alternatively, you may be a career paralegal who wishes to progress your career, assist senior level lawyers, and develop your skillset within a highly successful corporate legal environment.

You will have the ability to work as part of a team whilst also being able to manage your own workload. The successful candidate should also be able to demonstrate the following attributes:
  • excellent communication skills both written and verbal
  • sound legal knowledge
  • ability and willingness to learn
  • attention to detail
  • organised with time and documents
  • good IT skills
  • discretion and professionalism
  • commitment to being part of a hard-working team and the flexibility to support transactional activity.
  • experience with DocuSign would be desirable but is not essential.

This job description is not an exhaustive list due to the requirements of the role. Therefore, the job holder may be required from time to time to carry out other ad hoc tasks as requested.
