My client is a Top 50 firm with national coverage, and significant real estate practice across commercial property, planning, construction, projects and real estate finance. They're looking to reinforce the Leeds team by bringing in another lawyer with commercial development experience, such a candidate most likely to be coming from a similar sized firm whereby they'll have been acting for large corporate and plc clients.

The quality of experience to date is really essential as that is the focus of work you'll be deployed on. This particular firm knows it can attract more commercial development work if they can get additional capability in the top half of the team.

Someone at Senior Associate or Legal Director would be easy to accommodate on technical competency alone. A Partner entry appointment would need you to have a bit more potency by way of track record in the market place if not some sort of client following even if that wasn't of huge value - just the fact that you had some clients who'd want to keep using you would be a valuable indicator of what you're about.

You'll be joining an ambitious team which is being championed for growth, where you can be an active part of the leadership and make a very visible and valuable contribution. As such it should be an attractive opportunity for anyone who is struggling to find progression opportunities with their current firm, or perhaps who wants a change in culture and environment. The management of this firm isn't all about cranking up rates and squeezing assets, there's no US influence on how things are done here, rather it's still a UK-centric firm despite forays overseas. Your contribution would be appreciated to a greater degree than in many other similarly ranked firms. Reach out for a confidential conversation.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
