Full Time
My client is a successful blue chip organisation within the energy sector, looking to hire a senior property solicitor for their friendly and hardworking team.

Based at their Sussex offices; you will work both autonomously, and in collaboration with the business and legal team, handling a wide range of property matters, both freehold and leasehold; and managing cases with outside providers.

The role will be varied and will encompass a variety of matters including (but not limited to):

 - Commercial and residential property matters - acting for vendors, purchaser, landlord and tenant

 - Working on conveyancing issues with outside counsel

 - Dealing with the negotiation of leases of offices and depots

 - Handling disposals – including grant of leases and disposals conditional upon planning permission

 - Handling general property related queries from the business

 - Dealing with wayleaves, transfers, leases and easements

 - Delivering training to the business on changes or updates to relevant legislation.

This exciting role requires a confident and team-oriented Solicitor, with at least 5 years’ PQE in property law, gained ideally from a mixed background including private practice and in-house. However, candidates with the relevant experience, coming straight from either private practice or in-house from another blue-chip organisation, are also of interest.

The successful applicant will need to be able to juggle a variety of matters at the same time requiring excellent prioritisation and communication skills.

Should you wish to find out more about this role, please send your CV to Catherine at G2 Legal.
