This is a career defining opportunity, one only limited by your ambition and drive. It’s your chance to help one of the world’s leading professional services brands shape a strategically vital legal business across multiple offices in the UK member firm.

KPMG member firms have combined worldwide revenues of $24.5bn and collectively operate in 155 countries with over 162,000 professionals around the globe. KPMG’s legal services practice has over 1,200 lawyers operating in member firms in over 50 countries with over 90 of those fee earners operating from the UK firm’s offices in London, Manchester and Birmingham providing legal services in Corporate & Commercial, Tax Disputes, Employment & Immigration, Corporate Crime, Financial Services Regulation and Global Entity Management and we focus on the delivery of coordinated legal advice in close conjunction with our Partners and colleagues throughout KPMG in the UK. This creates multi-disciplinary capabilities and approaches for clients.

We’ll look to you as our practice leader to take ownership of and expand our legal business across the south of the UK. Based in Reading, you’ll have access to our extensive client list and be tasked with significantly growing a team of exceptional fee earners across our offices in Reading, Bristol, Southampton, Plymouth and Cardiff.

As a corporate lawyer, what will make you stand out is your skill set, pedigree and personality, rather than an extensive client following. You’re the type of person who is always bringing out the best in those around you, defining your personal success as what you achieve with your team. You’re a visionary and proven relationship builder who can identify and capitalise on every opportunity. Your success will carry you swiftly into our equity.

To discuss this opportunity in more detail please contact our retained consultant Aaron Balfour of Balfour Lewis on 0203 709 2586 or 07956 304648 or email your CV to
