Commercial Solicitor

Commercial Solicitor

Office       Bristol

Division   Corporate & Private Clients – Europe

Are you a qualified solicitor circa 2-5 year PQE with strong experience in commercial law - automotive and technology? Then we would be very interested in speaking with you! 

Jordans (now part of Vistra) has gone through a lot of exciting change and growth in the last 2 years, so a GREAT time to be joining - to be a part of the journey and make your mark! Very friendly business, great company benefits, strong team and work ethic, but also know how to let their hair down! 

This role would suit someone wanting to move out of a large corporate environment, or perhaps a professional who has a mix of private practice and in-house recruitment. No business development required (I know right!), and very flexible on place of work i.e.other offices, from home, etc

We need someone who is experienced and can hit the ground running - we have plenty of work to keep you busy! Exceptional cutomer services skills, and naturally client and service focused is key. 

We are growing and with this there is a lot of opportunity to develop and progress up the career ladder! Sounds great right??


Key Responsibilities


The role will involve both transactional and non-transactional commercial work. You will therefore be drafting and negotiating transactional commercial agreements as well as drafting standard agreements and terms of business for clients. In addition, you will be providing advice on compliance areas such as GDPR and competition law

Your work

The successful candidate will provide support within our two main sector specialisms, being automotive and technology, as well as to clients in other sectors. The successful candidate will be very much in control of their own destiny so that there will be an opportunity to specialise in due course in one of these sectors or indeed to create their own sector or legal specialism.

Our clients

Our clients range from global brands through to start-up companies. Over 50% of the work will have an international element to it. Therefore, you must be capable of explaining some quite complex ideas in simple terms to clients where their first language may not necessarily be English.

Your opportunity

Whilst this role is an entirely client facing role within an SRA regulated firm of solicitors, Jordans Corporate Law is not like traditional private practice. As part of the Vistra Group, you will be working alongside colleagues from other professional disciplines and from other countries and with a ready- made client base. We provide a supportive environment and are very flexible as to how and where you work. Jordans Corporate Law is a fast-growing law firm. We are only 5 years old and therefore the successful candidate has very much an opportunity to shape the destiny of the law firm as well as their own career.

Qualifications and other requirements


We’re looking for a 2-5 qualified commercial solicitor. The successful candidate must be capable of working both independently and as part of a team.
