The Opportunity

Are you a Real Estate lawyer looking for a step up? If so this could be the opportunity for you!

VG Charles is currently partnered with an international law firm which has a flawless reputation in terms of its real estate practice. There is now an exciting opportunity for someone between NQ- circa 3 years’ PQE to join its thriving Manchester team.

You will be working with excellent clients and will receive exposure to high value international work. The work is varied and the team advises on a broad range of issues including; commercial landlord and tenant matters, development, portfolio acquisitions and disposals, property financing and mixed use developments.    

In order to attract the best candidates to the opportunity the client has formulated an excellent remuneration package.

The person

If you’re reading this we know that you’re most probably a real estate lawyer. We are well aware that current market conditions are very favourable to real estate lawyers and you can afford to be very selective. This is why we have chosen to market this unique opportunity.

We are looking to speak with someone who is not necessarily unhappy in their current role, rather someone is looking to take a step up within a friendly environment. If you are unhappy please still apply, it’s just not a pre requisite!

You will be a lawyer in a good real estate practice (not necessarily the usual suspects). Academics are important but our client considers the quality of training and the early years of PQE to be more significant. You will also be down to earth and friendly.

How to proceed

Let’s face it there is only so much you can say in a job advert. You can obviously send over a CV to apply however we recognise that this isn’t always possible. If you fall into the latter category we are always happy to have a conversation in the strictest of confidence.

“Tony has done an excellent job throughout. He is professional, courteous and thorough.”
