My client is an award winning mixed-use property developer in the UK & Ireland, famous for one of Europe’s largest and most exciting transformation projects having delivered thousands of homes, shops, restaurants, hotels and cultural venues, as well as supporting a growing community of residents and workers. With diverse work streams combining the continuation of development alongside the asset management of the developments already delivered, they are looking to bring in a Legal Counsel with Commercial Real Estate experience to lend further support across the business.

You will be required to manage external counsel and provide legal advice to the business on day-to-day legal matters and queries that arise out of the residential letting business, landlord related asset management (across a diverse range of asset classes) and on regulation and compliance in the property management side of the business. Further support will be required on high value projects/transactions in respect of financing, development of land and on new acquisition/disposal projects. Whilst the role will be inherently real estate focused, it will provide an excellent opportunity for a junior lawyer to upskill across a diverse workload including commercial, IP and general company/corporate matters.

Ideally you will have 1-4 PQE with time spent in a real estate team either in-house or in private practice (minimum 6 months), and be confident in your ability to network and build effective internal and external relationships at all levels.

In what is a highly entrepreneurial and collaborative environment, this is a fantastic opportunity for a junior lawyer to join a legal team that is well-integrated into the business, working closely and strategically with other internal business functions such as the Strategy & Investment, Tax and Finance teams, as well as gaining excellent exposure to board level executives.

If this sounds of interest and you feel you have the necessary skill set, please get in touch a.s.a.p. at danieljackson@taylorroot.com
