A Real Estate lawyer is required to lead the legal team of this growing company.

A well known business that has locations throughout the UK and provides flexible working office space is seeking a Senior Counsel with experience in real estate transactions.

As a PE backed entity the company has gone through significant growth in the UK and is now venturing into Europe. Consequently the business requires its first in house lawyer to build and grow the legal function.

Working in Central London and reporting to the General Counsel, you will be responsible for all the legal matters of the business including corporate commercial real estate matters, acquisitions, litigation and other ad-hoc matters.

Candidate Requirements:

  • You should ideally have a minimum of 3 years' PQE and have experience of working in house or if coming from private practice, you will have spent time on secondment.
  • Technical skills will include advising on new acquisitions, including Heads of Terms, lease negotiations, freehold purchases and corporate acquisitions
  • An ability to work on future cross border matters will also be advantageous.

This is an outstanding role to join a dynamic and growing business as it spreads its customer base across Europe. This is a stand alone role with support from the GC and a wealth of other lawyers, but has significant autonomy. Please do not hesitate to get in contact directly by speaking with James Franklin at Morgan McKinley or apply using the link.

Morgan McKinley is acting as an Employment Agency and references to pay rates are indicative.

BY APPLYING FOR THIS ROLE YOU ARE AGREEING TO OUR TERMS OF SERVICE WHICH TOGETHER WITH OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT GOVERN YOUR USE OF MORGAN MCKINLEY SERVICES.
