Experience Level 6 - 8 YRS PQE9 + YRS PQE
Practice Area Corporate & Commercial
As a result of further expansion of our client’s highly successful team, we are looking for an enthusiastic and conscientious lawyer with experience of property finance work (experience in the specialist lending market is of particular interest) to join the firm’s highly regarded Property Finance group of 20+ at Senior Associate or Salaried Partner level, dependent upon experience.
The Property Finance team currently comprises solicitors, experienced fee-earning paralegals and support staff.
The role involves acting for a variety of lenders in reporting upon, taking and perfecting security over buy-to-let, semi-commercial or commercial properties from individuals, trusts, companies and limited liability partnerships with a combination of term, bridging and development finance. It also involves an awareness of corporate issues and a need to liaise and work closely with the corporate and banking group. In this sector of the property market, prompt attention to transactions (and any issues that arise) is a minimum expectation and a constructive, commercial, proactive approach is essential.
Ideally, the successful candidate will possess sound technical knowledge including the ability to review and analyse facility letters, title documents, planning documents (including statutory agreements), rack rent and long leases, and transactional documents. A high standard of financial hygiene – including the ability to ensure that appropriate work is priced at the correct level, that any changes to cost are communicated at an appropriate stage and maximum recovery is achieved.
This position comes with a high degree of personal responsibility including the ability to review and approve work from junior solicitors and paralegals, and to take on a key role in maintaining and developing relationships with clients. It is expected that the incoming candidate will have 10+ years PQE in dealing with transactional property work.
This is an excellent opportunity to join and grow with an exciting and engaged team, with a genuine chance of progression in a highly regarded Legal 500 practice.
