WORK UNDERTAKEN BY TEAM
A Commercial property solicitor within this department can expect to act on a wide assortment of top quality work, from SME clients and private commercial developers to large ‘blue chip’ companies engaged on multi million pound deals. The breadth and standard of instruction is as high here as any top tier law firm. However, the approach to each deal is always sensible, down-to-earth and straight forward.
A MIX OF FIRST CLASS TALENT
The commercial property team of this leading Legal 500 firm boasts some of the most highly regarded practitioners in this area of law. The team is made up of commercial property solicitors from various backgrounds. Some have cut their teeth in ‘Magic Circle’ or regional top tier firms, whilst others have started their commercial property careers in smaller practices. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to recruitment.
Our client believes in sourcing gifted commercial property solicitors from various talent pools. What makes this real estate team such a success, is that each is committed to building a long term career which delivers the best service to its clients whilst creating a supportive place to work. Members of the commercial team have typically enjoyed a long term career with the firm and the department benefits from very low staff turnover.
As stated above, our client draws its talent from a broad range of background. Therefore, top tier or even mid-tier experience is by no means necessary. Our client is just as ready to recruit from a small regional practice as it is a large national firm. However, candidates should be able to demonstrate:
- A strong academic background;
- A genuine desire to build a long term career in commercial property;
- A personable approach to their work and general demeanour;
- A real commitment to client service.
The commercial property team of this law firm is highly team-orientated. What perhaps makes this firm a little different is that it deals with top tier clients, whilst maintaining a medium tier environment. The team places as much focus on internal, inter departmental relationships as its external relationships with clients.
GENERAL CAREER PROGRESSION AND DEVELOPMENT
This is a law firm where talent is rewarded. The lawyers within the commercial property team are encouraged to be creative and entrepreneurial and to grow and develop their skills within the practice. Furthermore, an innovative bonus structure has been put in place to recognise those who demonstrate extra commitment.
The commercial property department is looking to increase its presence in the Manchester market as well as in the North West as a whole, whilst working in tandem with its impressive London offering. It is looking for talented, hard-working, out-going commercial property solicitors to join its thriving department and bring their enthusiasm to bear on a dynamic and developing team.
