Commercial Property Solicitor
This is an unusual and stand-out opportunity based in Mayfair, London, within an established Private Equity firm. There is the chance to earn big bonuses, with a commission structure that is unheard of in the traditional private practice firm. The firm has several lawyers working in-house, as well as wealth advisors, tax specialists, and surveyors. They act as a one-stop service for businesses and investors offering a range of different services. The firm often invests their money as well as their clients, and because of the value they often add to their Commercial Property transactions, lawyers bill very well.
Recently they have purchased a large office complex on behalf of a consortium of investors; they dealt with the debt finance dealing with all aspects of the acquisition. Several months later they commissioned a rent review increasing the rental income and negotiated a sale giving investors a 300% return on their equity. You will work as part of a highly skilled team, dealing with a varied workload which will make the role interesting.
Within the firm the work includes; Property acquisitions and off market opportunities, Debt Finance, Asset Management, Residential development, Offshore structures, and syndicated investment. The company also has a network of consultants, allowing them to offer a truly multi-service offering to their clients.
You will have a caseload from day one. However, you will be expected to network with clients and can spot new business development opportunities. They are currently very busy with lots of new work coming through the door. For the right candidate, there are high prospects of being able to become a Director with equity being potentially on the cards. In addition to your salary, you will receive a very lucrative bonus structure allowing you to increase your earnings significantly.
This role would suit someone who perhaps currently works in private practice and feels they have hit a glass ceiling regarding progression and may work in a top-heavy department. Alternatively, maybe, a lawyer who bills well but isn't rewarded for the work that they generate. You should have at least five years PQE in Commercial Property and have experience of dealing with investment transactions and acquisitions and disposals. You should also have a strong billings history and expertise of building and developing business. Salary is negotiable and will depend on your background and past billings.
An exciting role for an ambitious Commercial Property Solicitor to join a private equity firm based Mayfair, London.
