As you can see from our website, our Real Estate teams are growing fast.  With a national presence of over 200 fee earners across 8 locations we're a force to be reckoned with.  The team is big but it doesn't mean we've lost our personal touch.  It’s the quality and commerciality of our service, our industry insight and the talent and passion of our people that engages our clients, and they love what we do.  It also means that our people are engaged, and excited about the opportunities for growth and development in our business – there is no doubt that it's an exciting place to be.

What is the role?

Our Real Estate Partner, Alistair Walton, is looking for an ambitious Lawyer to join him in either Southampton or Bristol.

Alistair's retail and corporate occupier team has a city pedigree and national reputation, acting for many national high street chains and large corporates. Transactions are often high value and offer excellent opportunities to undertake quality work from a regional office base, with access to a London office to enhance market profile and client service.

Our location in Southampton is fantastic, just a five minute walk from Southampton Central station and a short stroll to shops and restaurants.  The offices are the envy of the firm following phase one of an impressive refurbishment.  Our Bristol offices are located close to Temple Meads and offer panaramic views of the city.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

We're interested in seeing applications from lawyers with at least two year's post qualification experience gained in a broad commercial property practice.  You'll be a bright and resilient lawyer who is excited at the prospect of working in a busy yet supportive environment.  You'll thrive on the opportunity to develop strong client relationships of which there will be plenty in this client facing role.

Whatever your experience level, or background, you'll need excellent drafting skills, a sense of commercial pragmatism, a bright mind and a strong team ethos to help further develop the team's client base.  You'll also need to be motivated to participate in business development that helps to raise the team's profile and network.

So what makes it so great to work here?

We know that it's not all about us.  You'll want to be assured that this is the right opportunity for you and we really believe that this is a fantastic place to work.  You'll be joining a supportive team where you can learn from true leaders in their field and build your experience with access to great quality work and great clients. Supported by a collegiate approach, and firm wide commitment to lawyer development there are fewer better places to develop your legal career.

In addition, through our D&I practices and programmes we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed. Visit our D&I page to find out more.

That's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose what suits you.

Next step.
