City Law Firm
Senior Associate 6+ PQE

This top-tier city firm advises individuals, families, businesses, financial services, educational and not-for-profit organisations on every aspect of the law, working with trusted professionals around the world to deliver a seamless international service. The firm's clients include banks, major businesses and media groups, as well as schools, charities, high net worth entrepreneurs and landed estates. Their clients operate across the world, with activities and assets in multiple jurisdictions. As a result, the majority of the firm's work has an international element.

The firm's Planning team advise on all aspects of planning law and are recognised by the legal directories for their strong background in urban development and community projects. Their lawyers advise landowners, developers, institutions and investors on the full range of planning, compulsory purchase and environmental issues. Their expertise spans infrastructure planning (Development Consent Orders), development control, plan preparation, planning agreements, due diligence and compulsory purchase (objections and compensation claims). The firm is also growing their environmental law offering.

The team are now seeking an experienced senior associate to join their team in London. The ideal candidate will have at least 6 years' PQE in planning gained from a highly regarded city or international law firm in London. As part of the role, your caseload will focus primarily on non-contentious planning matters for a variety of clients, both domestic and international.

Please apply as directed or confidentially contact Aidan McAvinue at Search Legal for more information. Alternatively, if this role is not for you, I am working a variety of other Planning opportunities with ranked teams in the City London so would be interested to talk to any Planning lawyer.
