We currently have the below vacancy within Dixcart Legal
Commercial Property Lawyer
We are currently looking for a commercial property lawyer to replace a senior Consultant who has just retired (although he still provides some cover for us at the moment).
There is currently a team of three comprising of a senior solicitor (head of department), junior solicitor and a paralegal (with the additional occasional assistance of the Consultant).
The work is extremely varied and includes high value clients.
The role offers the opportunity to work in a small team carrying out high quality and sometimes complex work, with good opportunities to develop the scope and range of the commercial property department and for your own promotion.
The role is somewhat unusual because the person involved would be building a department from a very small team of personnel; but, as far as the work is concerned, this is high quality and high value work.
We have a highly skilled interim Head of Property lawyer in place who will step aside in due course when appropriate but continue to be supportive (and gradually reduce) as required, depending on who we find/skill sets/experience.
Potentially this is very much a senior level position (head of department – note that our structure does not allow for equity).
- Senior commercial property lawyer to play a leading role working with a small team.
- Working as part of a larger team on commercial transactions (property elements) as well as in pure commercial property work.
- Salary dependent on experience.
- The successful candidate will have the ability to supervise a junior solicitor and paralegal, have a proactive approach, strong management and communication skills.
- Sound technical expertise
- The candidate lives within a maximum 45 minute commute of our offices in Bourne Business Park, Addlestone
- Senior level experience
- Law degree - LLB (Hons) Law Upper Second or higher
