A vacancy has arisen in the Dispute Resolution team based in Surrey. A Solicitor with 2-3 PQE dealing with contentious real estate matters is required on a full time basis to join our busy team.
The applicant will have a record in contentious property work with experience of commercial landlord and tenant disputes (business tenancy renewals, rent reviews and dilapidation cases). He or she will have knowledge of disputes involving easements, restrictive covenants, boundaries and co-ownership. An understanding of the law relating to long leases of flats (lease extensions, enfranchisement and service charge disputes) would be an advantage.
The clients in most part will be commercial organisations, particularly small and medium enterprises and high net worth individuals.
The firm has large residential and commercial property departments and the candidate will support non-contentious lawyers and participate as needed in those departments.
Sensitivity to the clients and skills to build up the work are expected. A passion for contentious property work is essential.
For the right candidate the role offers a challenging and rewarding career with prospects.
