Real Estate Senior Associate - fantastic progression

In truth this is not a run of the mill real estate role. Technically it sits within the real estate finance team within a large and hugely renowned real estate team.

All that said, at its heart, it is a real estate role. Where it differs is that, of course in addition to the focus towards the Lender's interests, it provides broad exposure to a number of key areas rather than requiring specialism within one. Often you can find lawyers are channelled down specific real estate specialism whereas here the work can encompass Investment, development and Landlord & Tenant work.

It is hoped that this exposure to a broader work will be one of the reasons why it might appeal. Rather than a role that would create a narrow focus of experience it will provide a much wider scope of work.

Yes, there is also the finance side that sits alongside but the team are confident that this represents such a smaller element and one which can be taught that their focus is more on finding a real estate specific lawyer who might be looking for a different opportunity.

As things currently stand the real estate finance specific team is small to the point that you would be working directly under a partner and would come in with no competition for progression and a real chance to make an impact. There are junior lawyers in the team and often their questions and required support revolve around the real estate specific aspects of the transactions which is why extensive grounding in this area is absolutely key.

Without question for an experienced real estate candidate it would represent an element of divergence away from the norm but to suggest that such a move would be limiting would misunderstand the nature of the work that the team undertakes and if there is any level of interest we would strongly encourage some exploratory dialogue.

If you are a bright and experienced real estate lawyer confident in their technical knowledge and are keen to try something a bit different then we are interested in speaking to you.
