Meade King LLP is a commercial law firm and we are looking for a full-time paralegal to work across our corporate and commercial team.

It’s a very busy team with many prestigious Bristol, South-West and National clients. You’ll be working in our niche, nationwide practice acting for healthcare professionals in their business dealings. This includes all related commercial, property, regulatory and dispute resolution work, including relationships with regulatory bodies such as the NHS and CQC.

The team is growing, and the right candidate could be offered a training contract in the future. All recent trainee solicitors have been recruited from the paralegals already working for us.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get real legal experience in a fast paced environment, with exposure to many different areas of law.

  • Be an LPC, LLB or GDL graduate
  • Have a good academic background in law
  • Have an interest in commercial and corporate, dispute resolution or commercial property law. We’d like it if you’ve completed or are doing the relevant LPC modules

What You Will Be Doing

You’ll be exposed to a wide variety of legal work such as due diligence, drafting, organising and managing documents, involved in every aspect of the sale, purchase and funding of businesses, companies,  freehold and leasehold properties, preparation of court bundles, attendance at court, and legal research amongst other work. You’ll have good exposure to clients here, along with working directly with partners and other solicitors in the team.

You’ll need great communication skills as you’ll be dealing with people on the telephone, by email and by letter and be expected to take an active role in the management and organisation of your department’s workload.

Your Benefits

Your starting salary will be £17,500 and you’ll have a six month probationary period, after which we may review your salary. We offer good benefits to our staff including cycle to work, Tax-Free Childcare scheme and Perkbox.

  • Residential Conveyancer
    We're looking for a motivated, organised and experienced residential conveyancer.
Why Join Meade King?

As a smaller commercial law firm, Meade King offers a different experience from larger, multi-location firms.  Our staff tend to have a higher level of responsibility at an earlier stage, with more client contact and a broader range of work. 

In recent times, all the training contracts we've awarded have been to staff who are already working as paralegals in the firm.
