Team Leader/Senior Paralegal - Transactional Services Team


Our client is a leading national and international law firm who are looking for either a senior paralegal with experience of managing a team of support staff, or lawyer looking to get away from fee earning to join their highly successful transactional services team (TST) in Leeds (with weekly travel to Manchester and other offices)

The role is a unique one and will be managing a team of paralegals, senior paralegals and other lawyers within the TST department.

The ideal person will either be a senior commercial paralegal with experience of managing a team of other support lawyers working in a department that deals with commercial transactional matters including due diligence reviews, drafting and negotiating routine contracts, overspill cover for in-house teams.

Duties involved will involve leading the team, managing performance, carrying out reviews/appraisals of staff, engaging with fee earners and partners across the Firm to promote the TST and identify and promote new business opportunities, helping to develop and maintain quality assurance processes.

This role would suit a senior paralegal with a background in Commercial Law who has managed a team but is not looking for a training contract, or a fee earner with a commercial background and management experience who wants to move away from the fee earning side and wishes to concentrate on developing and managing a larger team.

There is a competitive salary, dependent on experience, and a great benefits package for the successful candidate.
