Website Michael Cummins Employment Solicitors

This is a unique opportunity.
Every job ad says this – we know. But this one really is. You can play a fundamental part in a fast-growing, boutique employment practice and share in the firm’s growth and success.

Culture and quality of life is everything to us. We’re collegiate, friendly and approachable. We offer commercial law firm quality work and clients. All of our lawyers have worked at global law firms but wanted a better quality of life – both in and out of work. Put simply, our size, structure and ethos means that we can offer these things in a way that larger firms can’t.

Our philosophy is that clients like down to earth, approachable and practical lawyers who provide solutions for their business. The clients we work with tell us that they come to us precisely because of this approach. We know from experience that winning high quality work doesn’t mean we have to be stuffy or legalistic, in fact the opposite – clients have worked with our team for many years, in many cases for decades, because of our pragmatic and friendly approach to business.

Since setting up 18 months ago, we’ve grown considerably and achieved significant client wins – including household names. Our work is 90% Respondent. The remuneration package is excellent and compares very favourably with large regional commercial practices. We offer highly flexible working arrangements including home working.

We’re looking for a solicitor from a commercial law firm background who is at least 6 years pqe. There’s no upper limit as we’re happy to consider an associate, senior associate or partner level appointment. Our unique culture, and our status as a niche practice, mean that both being a team player and being able to work independently are more important than precise level of experience. Your approach and team ethic is what matters most.

We’re based in the Midlands but would very happily consider candidates from further afield because of the flexible working arrangements we offer.
