James Pitchford and Jeremy Smith, two of our Cambridge based partners, have a busy and thriving practice focused on the physics, electronics, computer software and telecoms sectors. They act for a variety of clients, some of whom are based locally to Cambridge, others elsewhere across the UK, and they also act for overseas clients, especially in Japan.
They are looking to recruit an ambitious and capable part-qualified or recently-qualified associate with the appetite to help develop the practice and grow the broader Cambridge team.
Currently the office, which is conveniently located on a modern and attractive innovation park, has six partners, six other fee earners and a support team. It also benefits from the firm wide support offered by the London office Formalities, IT, Marketing and other teams. London is readily accessible so staff visit both ways on a regular basis.
Cambridge is a perfect location for those who want easy access to London but also value the short commute, green spaces and clean air of the countryside. The city itself has a thriving cultural and social scene, and the firm even has its own punt that staff and their families can make use of.
With a transparent appraisal and career progression system, generous salaries and bonuses, not to mention a friendly and supportive working culture with regular social and sporting events, both in Cambridge and London, we are confident we can offer a superb opportunity to the right candidate.“
