Job Details

Our client, a highly regarded Legal 500 ranked firm based in Manchester City Centre are looking for a Real Estate Disputes Associate to join their team.

The team has been extremely busy and is looking for a talented individual to help deliver excellent service to a mixture of regional and national clients. The position offers an opportunity for the right candidate to play a key role in the development of this growing team!

The firm is recognised by, amongst others, the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For, Roll On Friday, FT and Legal Week Innovation Awards for its culture, diversity and collaboration.

You will:

  • Undertake a stimulating combination of property advice and active litigation. We spend as much time providing clients with strategic advice on how to avoid disputes as we do in the Courts.
  • Work with non-contentious Real Estate fee earners, giving advice to them and their clients on property issues where an advantage is to be gained or a problem avoided.
  • Run litigious matters through to settlement or trial. You will give practical advice to clients on the merits of a case as well as being able to guide them through the litigation process.

Whilst the majority of the work will focus on commercial property, there are opportunities to act on residential and agricultural matters too. As well as the 'typical' Real Estate Disputes work such as forfeiture, lease renewal, rent reviews, restrictive covenants, adverse possession and rights of way, our team has nationally-recognised specialists in the fields of business rates, agricultural tenancies, telecoms and legal title indemnity insurance.

What they are looking for

  • 0-4 years PQE with a broad range of hands-on litigation experience gained with a large regional or City firm.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills and desire to be involved in growing the practice
  • Willingness to learn and build up a wide range of experience
  • Desire to market, to develop and to strengthen existing client and agent relationships
  • Commitment to and interest in real estate disputes (property law and dispute resolution)
  • High level of analytical and forensic/litigation skills with real potential for taking on more complex matters
  • A pragmatic approach to problem solving
  • Ability to create a good impression with clients (internal and external), potential clients and intermediaries


  • Competitive salary
  • Hybrid working
  • Generous holidays
  • Private medical insurance
