The opportunity

Are you looking for your next career move? Are you considering leaving the concrete jungle behind to enjoy life in Bristol - short commutes and weekends spent in relatively local West Country gems such as the Devon, Dorset and the Cotswolds?

We understand you wouldn’t want to compromise on top quality work and the ability to work alongside lawyers who are leaders in the field.  You may also worry about leaving London behind completely. Working at Burges Salmon does not compromise any of the above. We stand "toe to toe with London firms" (Legal 500).

Glance through the legal directories and you will quickly realise our work is city quality, we are proud of our top class international and domestic client base. Browse 'The Deal' ( and you will realise the firm is committed to nurturing and developing exceptional talent. Temple Meads train station is (quite literally) on our doorstep with the option to be in our central London office within 2 hours.

We have a number of opportunities in our Corporate team which is currently growing and are keen to speak to lawyers from NQ+ who would like to join us. You don't even need to make a formal application, if you are only at the enquiry stage we would love to hear from you (just email or call 0117 307 6026).

The work will be varied, exciting and you can expect to be working on fast-paced transactions as part of partner-led teams. This commitment to ensuring our lawyers are trusted with responsibility and involved with a broad range of work means you will naturally develop into a first class transactional lawyer.

The team

Our Corporate Finance lawyers are ambitious and thrive in a dynamic environment. They are team workers with strong interpersonal skills – taking time to develop lasting, effective working relationships both with clients and colleagues, a hallmark of the exceptional client service and collaborative working environment for which we are so well known.

One of the largest dedicated corporate finance teams outside London, you only need to glance at the directories to realise we are tier 1. With 14 partners and more than 30 lawyers, we regularly advise alongside the magic circle and were recently described by Chambers UK as "indisputably one of the best corporate teams around.”

Yet more evidence that your successful legal career doesn’t have to be in London.

The work

We have particular strength in the mid-market and differentiate ourselves by offering best in class service with a combination of partner-led expertise, strength in depth and value for money.

Our specialist expertise includes M&A (both public and private), private equity and venture capital, equity capital markets, corporate reorganisations and joint ventures.

We compete at the very top of the legal market in particular sectors including energy, food, transport and financial services and regularly represent a number of leading UK and overseas clients on cross-border deals involving multiple jurisdictions.

Recent highlights include the sale of Pukka Herbs to Unilever plc, the acquisition of Hydro International by pan-European private equity firm Agilitas, the recommended partial takeover offer for AIM-listed Sutton Harbour Holdings plc and the sale of Yeo Valley Dairies to Arla Foods.
