Agriculture NQ role - Bristol

My Client’s Agriculture, Farms and Estates team is one of the largest teams of rural lawyers in the country acting for some of the biggest private landowners in the UK.  The team have established genuine long-term client relationships characterised by trust and affection, they rely on their thorough understanding of all countryside issues and why shouldn't they?  With over 200 years’ experience of providing multi-disciplinary advice to landowners, they know they're in good hands.

Just because the team is big, though, doesn't mean they have lost our personal touch.  It’s the quality and commerciality of their service, industry insight and the talent and passion of their people that engages our clients, and they love what they do.  It also means that their people are engaged, and excited about the opportunities for growth and development in the business – there is no doubt that it's an exciting place to be.

The team has an exciting opportunity for a lawyer to join them in our Bristol office, providing a genuine chance to join a highly motivated and supportive team with a wealth of relevant experience.

What will you be doing?

You'll be working closely with lawyers in the wider Real Estate and Private Client teams, providing comprehensive advice to clients with agricultural property on instructions ranging from supporting landowner clients buying and selling property, or promoting land for development by way of options or promotion agreements, through all aspects of management of rural assets, including tenancy issues and planning, to both the implementation of green energy schemes and the letting of land for these purposes.  You'll also be acting for lenders to rural borrowers wishing to offer agricultural land as security, but with one or more challenging factors.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

You'll either be a newly qualified lawyer who's keen to specialise in this area of real estate law who's had exposure to quality real estate work (albeit not necessarily in agriculture) during your training contract or a more experienced real estate lawyer welcoming the challenge of a move into this specialist area. Just as important are excellent drafting skills, a sense of commercial pragmatism and the desire and ability to build long lasting relationships with rural clients.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
