We are looking to recruit Senior Lawyers to join busy teams at our Shirley and Birmingham City Centre Offices.

Sydney Mitchell offers a friendly and flexible environment where lawyers can develop their client base and skill set in an organisation that fosters a team approach with a high level of support. As BLS Law Firm of the Year 6 out of the last 12 years we work hard to make the firm a success and look after our most valuable asset – our staff.

Our support teams provide all of the back-up you will be getting at a larger firm with strong accounts, marketing, HR, IT and compliance staff.  You will be supported with your training and have access to up to date relevant online services and modern IT systems.

Our ethos is to provide great client service at all times. Many of our clients are very longstanding and much of our work comes from existing clients and recommendations. We have a strong network of professional contacts that regularly send us work.

You might be someone who has many more years’ experience who is ready to trade the daily commute for somewhere more local and long working hours to something more manageable. Maybe you are fed up with the demands of being a partner or supervisor and would prefer to go back to being client facing?  We welcome partners from other firms who want to get back to being lawyers first and foremost and we also offer a defined progression route to partnership for those with ambitions.
