About Us
Brandsmiths is a boutique law firm with offices in Manchester and London providing specialist legal advice to IP rich businesses and individuals.
Our clients include established brands such as BMW, Microsoft, Umbro, Speedo, Lacoste, YMU, Entertainment One, Hasbro, Bremont, Cinch, Black and Decker, Supreme and Beverly Hills Polo Club, as well as fast growth businesses like Dirtea, Vinted and Hereweflo. In sport, we have considerable experience advising sports clubs as well as high profile individuals such as Sir Mo Farah, Roberto Carlos and David Haye.

We pride ourselves on offering a supportive and collegiate atmosphere.  We focus on:
- Intellectual Property: protecting, exploiting and enforcing IP rights for brands
- Sport: using regulatory expertise to help sporting clubs and talent
- Commercial litigation: applying strategy and legal knowledge to get the best result
- Corporate/Commercial: helping IP rich businesses get to where they want to be
- Media & Privacy: protecting the reputations of brands and celebritiesThe Role

We have a requirement for an experienced solicitor who has excellent litigation skills and is able to work as a senior member of a team involving a Partner, taking a key role in the team on larger cases and running smaller matters with lots of autonomy. We encourage autonomy and you will have room to make the role your own. You will progress based on merit, with a clear path to promotion for the right candidate.

You must have top class legal, technical and soft skills, demonstrating the right level of experience for your qualification to carry out this role.

You will be expected to be able to work proactively, with appropriate supervision, and so should be able to demonstrate experience in letters of claim, issuing claims and managing litigation through to, and including, trial. You will be expected to supervise more junior staff as a key senior member of the team.

Personality is important at Brandsmiths. You will need to work within a tight-knit team and demonstrate an ability to build relationships within the business and with clients. You will be supervised by senior lawyers, but will also be expected to supervise and mentor more junior staff to assist in their development and progression.

You should be goal orientated, driven, comfortable dealing directly with clients and welcome opportunities to develop business. You will be encouraged to grow your network and, in time, build a client base of your own.

Cross-office working with our Manchester office is always encouraged.
