Job Details

Are you a Commercial Property Solicitor looking to take your career to the next level?

Weisberg Legal are a modern high street law firm with traditional values and an emphasis on Commercial Property, Private Client and Residential Conveyancing. We have a reputation for exceptional client care and we are a supportive environment where our team is like an extended family. We are dynamic enough to support flexible working and utilise the latest technologies for efficiency yet we retain the old-fashioned charm of a friendly and traditional high street firm offering a personal service.

This is a senior role for a qualified solicitor in a growing firm with emphasis on the potential to become a non-equity director and enhance your career.

Whilst this is a full time, largely office-based position, hybrid or part-time working is available to the correct candidate.

The mix of work is varied, interesting and reliable. We currently advise on all aspects of Commercial Property including Commercial Conveyancing / Landlord and Tenant / Small Business Acquisitions / Residential Estate Development Schemes (~ 2 – 20 plots) / Option Agreements / Enfranchisement / Right to Manage / Lease Extensions / Guarantees and Indemnities / Asset Transfers / Independent Legal Advice / Stamp Duty / Commercial Finance Security. Knowledge of general commercial law such as shareholder agreements and company law, or experience with contentious matters is particularly welcomed but not essential.

We pack a surprising punch for a “small firm” with high value deals and exciting clients. We have recently worked on multi million pound option agreements, the purchase of an entire mixed use High Street, asset transfers between Local Authorities, we represent a well known international charity, we have a strong London and International client following and are the go to lawyers for a number of celebrities and sportspersons. We are looking to recruit to expand our team and we have a number of established local developers wanting to instruct us which we are turning down until we have increased staffing capacity as client service is paramount to us.

We are looking for a candidate to progress to the next level with us. Could that be you?

Requirements:

  • Solicitor regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, at least 3 years PQE.
  • Recent and substantial experience in Commercial Property.
  • Autonomy to manage own caseload and act with initiative.
  • Exceptional attention to detail, IT literate, strong organisational skills with the ability to solve problems and work under pressure sometimes to tight timeframes.
  • Excellent client care and communications skills.
  • A strong work ethic with an enthusiasm to develop your own long-term career with us and expand the company’s varied client database.
  • Ambition to take a leadership role or other senior position (with training if required) such as COLP / COFA / MLRO.  

This role may also be of interest to relocators from larger cities, who are looking to retain a quality caseload but achieve a genuine work life balance that is so often absent.

We are offering a competitive package, £45,000 - £75,000 dependent on experience, plus bonus / fee sharing.

The benefits of working for Weisberg Legal?

We are a family firm and so our team really do mean everything to us and are rewarded with:-

  • Competitive salaries
  • 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays)
  • Ability to buy and sell additional annual leave
  • Half day if your birthday falls on a workday
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • Private medical insurance with GP consultation service
  • Life insurance
  • Annual eye test / flu vaccination
  • Employee assistance program and discount scheme
  • Support and funding for professional training and career development
  • Weekly all staff “Coffee Mornings” with fruit and cakes
  • Pet dogs welcome to the office
  • Discounted legal services
  • Regular office activities (recent subsidised or free events such as tickets for Bath Rugby, team entry to Bath Boules, evenings at Bath Horse Racing, supporting Bath City ladies team, office “pancake” day, Cocktail Nights etc)
