Job Details

New! - our client is a leading Legal 100 firm with a top-tier Real Estate Practice who are recognised for their exceptional technical knowledge within the legal directories. Due to growth, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an ambitious Real Estate Solicitor (2 PQE+) to join their office based in the Thames Valley.

You will work on a broad range of matters, including leasehold and freehold transactions, development work, secured lending and first registrations. You will have the opportunity to develop your own caseload but also to work with more experienced colleagues on larger projects. The team’s client base includes large landed estates and other landowners, developers, charities, universities and schools, lenders, businesses and private individuals.

The ideal individual will have trained with an established regional, city or national firm and have gained a solid overview across a broad range of real estate transactions. You will be able to demonstrate a consistently strong academic profile and some regional ties to the Thames Valley would be preferable.

The team frequently advise on complex commercial property matters including:

- Portfolio Management

- Real Estate Finance

- Landlord & Tenant

- Development Projects

- Investment Opportunities

You can expect to contribute to business development initiatives on a regular basis. This role will suit someone looking for early client contact and the opportunity to develop their real estate knowledge longer term. This firm are frequently ranked highly in the legal directories and are noted for their "...exceptional diligence and in-depth technical knowledge". The firm has a focus on promoting employee well-being and is consistently ranked highly within internal employee engagement surveys with a high retention rate across all PQE levels.

It is regarded as one of the leading real estate practices in the Southeast outside London, and is recommended by the leading independent legal directories.  There is PSL and paralegal support within the department and access to a wide range of valuable on-line resources.


Candidates should have good inter-personal skills, strong academics and high-quality experience – typically with a major City or leading national/regional practice. Team playing skills are important – successful candidates can expect to work with a number of partners within the group, in small and occasionally larger teams, as well as running cases with minimal supervision.

Clients include mid-tier businesses (whether quoted or owner-managed), household name PLCs and other major international groups, and high net worth private clients.

The team offer excellent supervision, coaching and training, and expect all team members to take responsibility at an early stage and to want to be stretched and challenged. An appetite for business development will be a definite advantage. 

The department handles a broad range of real estate work and includes teams dedicated to dispute resolution, construction, planning and environmental.  The main areas of expertise are:

  • Development Investment Corporate occupiers (including retail/office/industrial) Banking

This is a collegiate and high-performing team who strive to exceed client expectations on every transaction. Employee engagement surveys reveal this firm to be highly regarded in terms of benefits, work-life balance and career progression.
