My client seeks a real estate lawyer (c.5 years PQE to senior - FT/PT and hybrid working) as a key strategic hire at this fast-growing and dynamic property business with significant growth plans.
Reporting to the General Counsel & Company Secretary, you will play a pivotal role in the organisation and you will be involved in a broad range of matters not limited to real estate, supporting a fast moving and ambitious business with significant plans for expansion.
A key part of the role will entail assisting regional land teams to deliver practical and commercially acceptable solutions to commercial and legal challenges, by assessing the viability and robustness of major projects. You will manage external counsel, working collaboratively with the external panel law firms to assist with land acquisitions and disposals. You will have the opportunity to be involved in formulating policies to facilitate regulatory compliance across the business, assess and mitigate risk and help manage complex and high value litigious matters. In addition, you will be involved with data protection issues within the Group and provide some company secretarial support.
To be of interest, you will have a minimum of 5 years PQE (to more senior) and a strong track record in real estate. Lawyers from a private practice background will be of equal interest as those already in-house. You should be a strong communicator, very commercially aware and solutions focused. You should also possess strong analytical and negotiating skills and be adept at dealing with stakeholders at varying levels.
This is a fantastic and rare opportunity for a property lawyer seeking a broader and more commercially focussed position, keen to perform a pivotal role within an organisation and make a real difference. On offer is a generous remuneration package offering a wide range of benefits. This is a part-time or full-time role, split between time in the office and home working. Only lawyers with UK experience will be considered.
To learn more about this opportunity please send your CV to the retained consultant, Adele Callaghan (specifying full details of your current remuneration package) or email me for a return call to discuss the role. This position is being handled exclusively by Hays Legal and any direct or third-party applications will be forwarded to Hays Legal for consideration.
