Job Description

THE FIRM

A forward-thinking firm which has been based in the City of London for more than 150 years

Clients include private and public companies, developers, investors, local authorities, funders and regulators but in particular a significant number of charities and housing associations.

THE ROLE

Real Estate (and particularly real estate development) is at the heart of the business, as it is with the major part of the client base.

Clients include registered providers of social housing and care homes, through to private developers, acting on development sites and investment properties securing an income stream but often with an asset management angle or development opportunity post acquisition.

ABOUT YOU

Personable and with strong analytical skills, your role will be to assist one of the partners predominantly with commercial property.

You will also be involved in a wider variety of transactions (from dealing with some property requirements of an entity in a CVA, investments purchases, option agreements, acquisition of development sites and ancillary planning requirements to high value residential work with the aim of honing your property skills to make you a trusted advisor for clients and the 'go to' person for their property enquiries).

There will also be opportunities to be involved in other work within the real estate team from time to time.

An important part of the role is to provide direct support and assistance to a partner in the team, whilst also helping with the management and development of junior fee earners and contributing more widely to the team and its growth.

The role will require flexibility and the ability to successfully prioritise competing demands

You will have a strong academic background, ideally gaining a 2:1 at degree level, and at least 1pqe along with a minimum of 12 months continuous experience in a similar role.

Familiarity with Registered Providers would be an advantage but is by no means necessary.

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