Job Details

This prestigious top law firm is carving an exciting growth path. The firm is renowned for developing and nurturing legal talent, evidenced by the number of homegrown Partners that they house. This, in addition to their collaborative and inclusive culture, has ensured that their employee retention rate is remarkably high. You will have a clear career path, a varied and interesting caseload, and lucrative earning potential.

The Firm

This firm is multi-award winning and has received numerous accolades in national press in recent years. They have gone from strength to strength throughout 2020 and have ambitious plans to build on this in the coming years. This ambition is shared across the firm, and everyone from Managing Partner to support staff have a clear vision for the future and know what is required to get there. This means that the opportunity to progress and grow with the firm is genuinely unlimited.

The firm has a long and deep-rooted history. Whilst this means that they have an impressive roster of loyal clients, their fresh, modern and cutting-edge approach mean they are continually attracting new, and more prominent clients too. They have established themselves as the 'go-to' firm across several sectors, focusing on insurance, commerce, and the health and care industry. You will find a range of clients, from OMBs and start-ups to multinationals and the public sector, making for a diverse and exciting caseload.

The reason for the firm's rapid growth over the past five years comes down to the talented individuals, that are a mix of homegrown, up and coming lawyers and strategic hires that have seen them enter a trajectory that is the envy of their competitors. This means that you can expect to be surrounded by some of the UK's most technically strong lawyers, whilst having the opportunity to progress your career in line with the firm's growth.

As with all modern businesses, the firm embraces agile working. You can split your time between the home and office, which has resulted in a sharp increase in productivity since being implemented. With significant investment in technology, wherever you are, you will be connected with your colleagues and will be able to communicate and collaborate effectively.

The Role

This is an exceptional opportunity for a Senior Real Estate Associate to join a growing, Top 100 law firm in their Leeds office.

The team handles a broad range of transactional Real Estate matters, including acquisition, development, sale and letting of residential, commercial and mixed-use developments, landlord and tenant, and real estate finance. Their client base is equally varied and includes major financial institutions, well-known international companies, and investors. The variety of deals makes for a diverse and stimulating caseload.

This role will give you exposure to intricate, high-value matters. You will have responsibility for your caseload whilst working closely alongside Partners across the firm on complex and large-scale projects. This exposure means you will be constantly challenged, and no two transactions will be the same.

This role comes with excellent prospects for progression, with a clear route through to Partner level, a well-trodden path for many of those who make up their current Partnership. If you are looking for an opportunity that can offer a step up, the highest quality of work, and lucrative earning potential, this is one not to be missed.
