We are newly recruiting for a Knowledge Lawyer to join our Banking & Lender Services Group in any one of our office locations nationwide. This is a fully flexible working opportunity, offered on a full or part-time basis and would best suit a qualified lawyer already in a similar role or looking to branch into this space from a fee earning background.

Your Role

  • Creating and delivering internal training to our fee earners. This will include trainee programmes, training for junior lawyers, as well as regular practice area and market updates.
  • Creating and, where appropriate, delivering training to clients. Client facing training will involve the delivery of virtual training, the preparation of written updates where necessary and the provision of in-person training, which may require travel (and include presenting at events tailored for specific clients and conferences with audiences including a wide selection of invitees).
  • Keeping up to date with legal developments and notifying fee earners of the impact of these on their practice, as well as ensuring that any impacts are dealt with in precedents, and practice notes.
  • Dealing with complex legal queries from fee earners.
  • Ensuring that all relevant materials created by you and the fee earners are captured, up to date, monitored and included in TLT’s internal knowledge database and promoting the use of this with fee earners.
  • Working with relevant business services teams across the firm to ensure that your group/team resources are easily accessible on Atlas.
  • Identifying potential risks and working with the Risk team to minimise these.
  • Identifying opportunities for efficiencies, either through process optimisation, legal project management or technology, and working with FutureLaw and MLS to trial, promote adoption and implement these.
  • Writing legal insights for our website, as well as articles for external publications.
  • Drafting responses to specific questions or parts of tenders.
  • Liaising closely with our wider team of Knowledge Lawyers who service other groups across the firm.
  • Mentoring and/or otherwise supporting the trainees in the team with developing their knowledge application and research skills
