Are you an Associate who is looking for the next steps to Partnership or an existing Partner looking for a new challenge?  The renowned Agricultural Law team at Thrings are looking for two non-contentious Partners to join the teams based in Bath & Romsey.  This role is part of the longer term succession plans for the team; so you won’t necessarily need to demonstrate that you have a following to join us, as you will be introduced to clients so you can develop those relationships; but you will need to show us that you have rural or agricultural experience, are driven, and will be able to longer term develop client relationships of your own.

Thrings Agricultural team are well connected and have a national client base; acting for landowners, farmers, rural businesses and estates.  We have close allegiances with leading industry bodies including the NFU. Whilst a large element of the role centres on developing the relationships we have, and building new ones, you will also be expected to run your own caseload to serve those clients.  Due to the nature of the relationships we have in place, there will be an expectation that you will be able to travel to meet clients.

Here at Thrings we pride ourselves on developing strong working relationships, with our colleagues and the clients we serve so you’ll need to show that you are a team player, ambitious for success and driven to help the growth of the Agricultural team’s presence.  We offer our clients advice in a way they understand, so you will need to be able to adapt to your audience and convert the technical and legal advice into commercial advice they are clear on.
