Legalease is the publisher of The Legal 500 Series, the market-leading directory with a long and established track record for analysing, ranking and providing detailed editorial on the world's leading business law firms. The Legal 500 prides itself on the quality and depth of its research, as well as on the integrity of its research team.

We are expanding our research team and have vacancies for bright, hardworking and tenacious researchers to work across The Legal 500 Series.

We currently have two open positions. One role will involve initially researching the German market, so applicants for this position must have an excellent command of spoken and written English and German.

One applicant will initially work on researching the German market, so must have an excellent command of spoken and written English and German.

All applicants must be able to manage time effectively and work to deadlines. Knowledge of the legal sector is preferable but not essential.

Much of the law covered by the Legal 500 guides around the world is commercial so an interest in business and the City would be helpful. Other language abilities are also an advantage (including Spanish). For an insight into the content of our products, please see legal500.com.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to develop their research and writing skills in a challenging and vibrant environment. You will be part of a successful, ambitious and growing organisation, where hard work will be rewarded with career progression.

Although part of a close-knit team, you will be expected to work with a high degree of autonomy. As the series is published worldwide, you will also be expected to travel internationally in time as you progress in your role.

Key responsibilities:

  • To gather details of law firms' recent work, through the collection of written submissions and interviews with senior-level lawyers, both on the telephone and face-to-face
  • To obtain opinions on the quality of law firms' work from their clients
  • To write comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the leading law firms in certain key practice areas


How to apply:

Please complete the application form below to send your CV and a cover letter in English (and German for those wishing to apply for the German-speaking role) explaining why you should be considered for the role.

The role is full-time, office-based on Fleet Street, London, so applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. Starting salary is £23,000 per annum. We are currently not seeking any freelancers.

Only successful applicants will be contacted and invited in for an interview
