  • Hybrid working – at least two days from home 
  • Structured progression routes

A national law firm is seeking a Commercial Lawyer with between two and six years PQE and experience within primary care (in particular GPs) to join its team in Newcastle. 

The firm offers hybrid working of at least two days per week from home, and your days in the office will help you progress your career fast, as you’ll be learning directly from some of the most successful and prominent lawyers in the field – the talent at this firm absolutely swamps the Legal 500 and Chambers rankings, paving the way for you to do the same. 

In this role, you’ll work as part of one of the leading commercial teams in primary care in the country. As well as managing your own caseload, you’ll work alongside an expert in this field, recognised as a Key Lawyer by the Legal 500, assisting them and other senior colleagues on complex matters.  

Your work will involve preparing, reviewing and negotiating Partnership documentation for medical practitioners, providing NHS Contract advice and working on partnership mergers. 

This national firm has its sights firmly set on growth and reaching the top 30. Along with these ambitions, it remains determined to retain the down-to-earth culture it has managed to continue to cultivate over its rich 200-year history.   

While it can be hard to differentiate between the firms at the top, this heavyweight provides its team with an unbeatable combination of upper market pay, lots of progression opportunities and an impressive level of flexibility, while keeping a relaxed and friendly environment.  

You will get plenty of opportunity to move up the ladder – which, by the way, is well-structured, with proper rungs on the ladder and a clear graduation in job titles. You’ll also get a pay review at least every 12 months.   

Equality and diversity are super important to this firm – and this isn’t something they just say to tick a box, they actually live and breathe it. In 2023, the firm was recognised as the Leading Legal Employer at the Top Employers Awards and is an accredited Living Wage Employer. It’s also open to considering part-time options for the right candidate.
