Our team in Edinburgh has grown and we're recruiting for a new role in our Real Estate team. This role will offer you the opportunity to develop your experience, work with expert lawyers and provide a first class service to our clients.
What sort of work will I be doing?
Our client base in Scotland is broad. This position is focused upon supporting the real estate aspects of some of our key sectors including energy and power renewables, retail, and financial institutions.
You'll also work closely with our UK wide teams supporting a variety of work and you'll get to know colleagues in our corporate, construction, tax and finance teams, to name but a few.
Transactions are often high value and offer excellent opportunities to be involved in quality work. This role also sees you managing your own portfolio of work and develop strong professional relationships with clients.
What experience is needed?
We're interested in seeing applications from lawyers who have some experience from a broad commercial property practice.
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 need to be motivated to participate in business development that helps to raise the team's profile and network.
