Dear Ms Graham,
A legal firm is only as good as the people it employs, and without wishing to sound boastful I believe that I am the best candidate for your recently advertised Lawyer vacancy.
As a sharp and energetic legal practitioner I am able to anticipate and respond effectively to a client’s needs and actively assist them by practising preventive law. I know exactly how to review and assess legal documents, and have a general understanding of those areas of law that you want a candidate to have knowledge of.
Being an experienced professional who is able to succeed both tactically and strategically in negotiating with third parties, I feel that I will have an immediate impact on your current situation.
The attached CV will demonstrate to you my ability to lead, collaborate and engage with others. However what it may not show is my ability to remain calm and balanced under pressure. I am someone who can work well within a collaborative environment, and possess the strong analytical abilities along with the capacity to think logically that are needed to achieve a satisfactory resolution of a complex dispute.
Aside from all of the above, what I feel will really separate me from other candidates is the way I draft communications that are easily understandable by the intended recipients. This ability to communicate in an effective manner is something that I am very proud of.
At this stage in my career I am keen to join an institution like yours that will provide me with opportunities that will last a lifetime.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter and review the attached documents. Do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an interview.
