Job Details

We are working with the UK division of a global title insurance business, which is looking to recruit a Commercial Property Solicitor for a Commercial Underwriting role. This is a great opportunity for a Real Estate Lawyer looking to do something a little different and transition away from the traditional law firm fee earning model. On offer is a really interesting opportunity to try something new, as well as good flexibility and work/life balance. Leeds city centre office location with option for home working.

You will be involved in major commercial property deals across the UK, underwriting high net worth commercial legal indemnity risks. This will involve the review, evaluation, and pricing of cases, aiming to secure the transaction whilst appropriately managing risk. You will work closely with a diverse range of professionals including commercial clients and brokers and will work collaboratively with the sales team to develop these relationships.

The business wants to recruit a Commercial Property Solicitor for this role, ideally you will have upwards of 2 years PQE / legal experience and will have worked across a wide range of Commercial Property transactions including acquisitions, disposals, landlord & tenant and development work.

This is ideal for a Solicitor looking for something outside of law firm legal practice.

For further information on this Commercial Underwriting role in Leeds, please get in touch with Sophie Linley at Sacco Mann on 0113 236 6711.


Sacco Mann are specialist Legal Recruiters recognised as regional experts with a genuine interest in, as well as knowledge of, their marketplace. We are renowned for giving clear and straightforward career advice and true quality of service.

We have thirteen experienced consultants focussing on legal recruitment, encompassing the Commercial, General Practice, Public Sector and In House positions, both permanent and locum. In addition two consultants specialise within the Patents and Trademarks sector.

We feel that much of our success has been due to the fact that we:

- try to accurately guage and understand what both candidates and clients require and indeed that which they are able to offer and then bring the two together
- have a demonstrable knowledge of the marketplace. Fundamentally what you need is not merely someone who can post your CV to a practice, but someone whose strength of contacts within the firms can add value, ensuring that you are given proper consideration
- discuss each role with you thoroughly and get prior clearance before a CV is submitted. This is an extremely important for protecting confidentiality and avoiding duplication
- brief you fully prior to any interviews, ensuring that you know what the role entails and how the interview will be run. We also give you honest interview feedback - if you don't do very well in an interview you can always learn from the experience
- are accessible and return your calls

Why use Sacco Mann?

Principally because we believe that the points outlined above are fundamental. We enjoy recruitment, and we are good at it, because we genuinely enjoy assisting people make positive career moves. We don't shuffle paper because we know our marketplace and are therefore in a position to give reliable, knowledgeable and practical advice.

The vast majority of our applicants and clients are at pains to thank us for the advice and service that we provide and we believe the high level of referral business is a direct result of the fact that lawyers value our input.
