A leading regional firm with an expanding UK presence. The firm is seeking to recruit a solicitor into its growing commercial team in Central Cardiff.
The successful candidate will have 4yr +PQE gained from a leading City or substantial regional firm. A strong academic background, sound technical expertise and good client-facing skills are essential requirements.
