Job Details

Are you keen to find an exciting new role where you will be part of a dynamic, forward-thinking, agile team? If so, come and join us on the journey.

Why Michelmores? Michelmores is the destination law firm for the ambitious, the imaginative and the distinctive. We help enterprises and individuals navigate change to find a positive future.

We are a flexible, friendly and inclusive organisation with as clear a focus on fresh thinking as we have on growth and success. We value and nurture our people’s potential and inspiration and give them a creative, open and collaborative environment in which to develop a career and succeed.

As our clients’ needs change and evolve, so do we. Our business services teams are continuously looking for ways to innovate and attract and retain the best clients and the brightest people. Central to our culture is our nurturing, friendly and flexible environment which genuinely allows our people to grow and flourish, both professionally and personally. We really care about what we stand for and want to move forward together.

What sort of work? We are currently seeking a Conflicts Analyst to join the Business Intake team. In this role, you will be responsible for completing conflict checks on all new matters, as well as identifying and resolving legal and commercial conflicts of interest.

This will involve liaising with key stakeholders across the business where necessary and identifying and escalating higher risk issues/conflicts to the Business Intake Manager and Governance & Risk team where appropriate.

You will be responsible for communicating with lawyers on matters that present a potential conflict, evaluating information obtained, as well as assisting with the resolution of conflicts issues that may arise during lateral hiring and new business processes.

Why this team? The Governance & Risk team is undergoing a period of expansion, and this is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing team.

Effective risk management is a key part of the Firm's governance structure and its culture. The Governance and Risk team of specialists work with the Firm and its lawyers to ensure we maintain the highest standards of professional conduct, effectively mitigate risk and are compliant with all our legal and regulatory requirements. The team's focus is very much on providing timely, pragmatic and solution-orientated risk advice and guidance. We pride ourselves on developing ways to continually improve the Firm's processes and the delivery of consistently high-quality services to our clients, which differentiate us from our competitors and enhances our client care.

How do we work? We take a flexible, agile approach to working patterns. As a Firm we are committed to supporting our people across all levels to achieve the balance they need. We are open to talk flexible working and to empower any candidate to put forward a flexible working pattern to meet their needs. We pride ourselves on our high-performance culture whilst offering a good work/life balance.

Most of the team work part of the week from their 'base' office and part of the week from home (with flexibility) but there is an expectation of working in the office two to three days a week. There would also be a requirement to travel between our other offices as and when required.

We are flexible about the location for this role, but you would need to have either Exeter, Bristol, Cheltenham or London as your 'base' office.

As a Firm we are committed to supporting our people across all levels to achieve the balance they need. We are open to talk flexible working and to empower any candidate to put forward a flexible working pattern to meet their needs.

Who are we looking for? We are looking for somebody who will understand our values and thrive in our culture. Ideally we are seeking:

  • Relevant experience acquired in a law firm or other professional services business.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the SRA Code of Conduct for Solicitors, RELs and RFLs, and Code of Conduct for Firms generally, but specifically in relation to conflicts of interest and confidentiality.
  • Knowledge and understanding of commercial conflicts.
  • The ability to analyse conflict and confidentiality issues and produce accurate and reasoned opinions on a range of regulatory issues and escalate more difficult issues where required.
  • Experience using Intapp Intake and Conflicts system would be desirable.
  • Excellent attention to detail, accuracy, written and verbal communication skills.
  • The ability to conduct thorough research using the internet and databases.
  • The ability to work independently and with others as part of a team and manage multiple priorities.
  • Someone who can apply logical thinking and demonstration the ability to prioritise.

This is a great opportunity to join a Firm which believes potential, inspiration, and teamwork should be valued and nurtured.
