The firm

Lewis Silkin is an international law firm with offices in London, Oxford, Manchester, Cardiff, Dublin, Hong Kong and now in Belfast. Our Belfast team specialises in IT, IP, data protection, corporate and employment law.

The expert tech law team formerly known as Forde Campbell has merged with Jones Cassidy Brett and the international London based firm Lewis Silkin, to form Lewis Silkin NI.

The merger has taken the IT, IP and data protection law expertise of the Forde Campbell team, recognised in Chambers and Legal 500 as Northern Irish market leaders with top tier sector experts, and combined it with the Creators, Makers and Innovators teams in Lewis Silkin’s offices in London, Oxford, Cardiff, Dublin and Hong Kong. Lewis Silkin NI now has access to tech and commercial transactions on a global basis, while still retaining its Irish client base and its roots in the Belfast start-up hub scene.

The merger has given the Northern Irish firm access to support and resources to allow it to provide unparalleled employment opportunities to Northern Irish tech lawyers, including lawyers returning home after working in Ireland or Great Britain.

The firm offers the chance to work with a quality client base to structure a career in all aspects of tech commercial law, with particular opportunities in the creation of an all-Ireland business law service to target the US and Chinese tech markets.  Our lawyers are in daily contact with colleagues in the other Lewis Silkin offices, sharing expertise and partaking in the wider firm’s superb training and business development opportunities. Finally, the quality of life at Lewis Silkin is literally award-winning, with the firm consistently being recognised as one of Britain’s best employers by the Sunday Times’ esteemed 100 Best Companies to Work For survey.

Our culture is encapsulated by an ethos of bravery and kindness, guided by our values of Integrity, Clarity, Unity and Excellence (our ‘I-CUE’). We aim to provide a supportive environment for our people, clients and wider community and embrace diversity & inclusion, ensuring people are able to bring their full selves to work.


We are looking for an experienced solicitor to join our corporate team in our Belfast office, the successful candidate will be 3-4 years’ PQE with a breadth of experience. This will include expertise in mergers and acquisitions, investments and joint venture. Experience of negotiating IT, IP contracts and advising on DPA / GDPR issues will be an advantage.

We are particularly keen to hear from solicitors who are dual qualified in NI/UK and ROI.
