Our clients come from a range of sectors but over the years we have developed a focus in healthcare, charities and private wealth and play a key role in these firmwide sector teams:

+ Healthcare: we have strengthened our position in the sector by developing relationships with significant operators and acting on care home and pharmacy transactions.
+ Charities: we work with local and national incorporated charities on mergers, constitutional, administrative and contractual matters and the formation of new charities, including charitable incorporated organisations (CIOs)
+ Private wealth: we help wealthy entrepreneurs and family businesses either with family succession planning or to ensure their wealth is protected and maximised on the sale of their business.

You will be working with 2 knowledgeable Partners who will offer support, and a trainee who you will mentor. There is a great variety of work and a close-knit community within the business. We encourage individuals to have client contact, build a following, and network.
About You:
