Job Description

This firm has over 1650 employees in 13 locations across the UK and are 5* in the Diversity League. There's no secret to our growth over recent years to become a £137m+ turnover firm. Clients, whether individuals or organisations, love working with our people because of the way we work and the results we consistently deliver for them. Our values guide our behaviour, and our behaviour defines our culture. We have just four values and like all the best and most effective things in life, they are simple: pulling together, talking business sense, being within reach and responsive and taking initiative.

The team

Our Division is one of the largest Real Estate teams in the UK, working nationally across our 11 locations. With over 350 people including 71 Partners, we advise a range of the leading real estate businesses operating in the UK market. Our clients primarily comprise developers, investors, funders, retail and leisure occupiers, social housing bodies, major corporates, and a range of public sector bodies.

We opened our Leeds office nearly three years ago and since then have built up a highly-experienced team of expert legal practitioners with a current office headcount of over 80. The Real Estate team in Leeds is the largest team in the office and are continuing to go from strength to strength and with an increase in work from existing and new clients (local and national), growth is very much on the agenda for this team.

The role

We are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic individual to deal with a varied and high-quality caseload which will include acquisitions and disposals, landlord and tenant and development matters. You will be supporting the wider growth agenda for the practice, and the role will provide every opportunity to develop your career to the next level and beyond.

Why should you apply?

We provide a great platform for individuals who want to develop and build upon their experience and skills with a clear and transparent progression plan. You will have every opportunity to unlock your potential through the wide variety and high-quality training that we offer. You will benefit from working alongside experts in their fields and supporting them on high quality and an impressive list of clients that you can add to your work portfolio.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
