Associate / Senior Associate – Commercial Property – Southampton
We have opportunities for solicitors and associates to join our thriving Commercial Property team based in Southampton.
Role: Associate / Senior Associate
Hours: Full Time
Vacancy Reference: 721-LSN
There is a wide variety of work on offer and, to an extent, the work you do will be adjusted to your interests and strengths, but it is likely to include a mix of development (residential and commercial), investment and retail landlord & tenant work. You will be involved in managing your own transactions as well as supporting others on more complex and large scale transactions. You will also have the opportunity to develop expertise in property finance work.
The team’s clients include national house-builders, retail chains and major financial services organisations, in addition to local authorities, private companies and some individual landowners. Many of our clients are based in London and our Southampton team works closely with our London office as well as our other offices.
In addition to your fee earning work, you will be encouraged to develop your wider business and management skills – playing an active role in the growth of the team in terms of business development and in developing and mentoring junior members of the team. Before long you should have developed your own reputation locally and, perhaps, further afield.
You will be joining an ambitious team which is determined to provide the best possible results for its clients, yet which remains a friendly, supportive environment which will encourage you to develop.
A qualified solicitor, or equivalent, you are likely to have at least four years’ PQE gained in real estate work. You will be comfortable with handling acquisitions and disposals of all types of commercial property and, ideally, have some experience of site assembly for development projects and house-builder clients. You will have acted for landlords and tenants on commercial lease negotiations and have acted for property investment clients. Experience of property finance work on behalf of major lender clients would be an advantage.
Beyond your technical skills, you will possess excellent client and communication skills and already have developed strong client relationships – nurturing existing clients and building relationships with new ones. You will be pragmatic and solutions driven, with a talent for overcoming obstacles and managing risk appropriately.
You will, like us, be passionate about your work and driven to succeed.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to progress your career within a large and continually growing, fast paced team.
