About Us

We are a multi-disciplinary high street legal practice serving clients in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire for over 125 years. Our mission is to establish lifelong relationships with all our clients by anticipating and responding to their needs for quality legal services. We are seeking an experienced property lawyer to join our team and help us achieve this mission.

About the Role

We are looking for someone to lead our small commercial property team in Derbyshire. You will run and develop the team, train junior staff and work closely with our large team in Beeston. You will very much manage your own workload but with support and direction from the Director who heads the Commercial Property Department.

You must have at least 5 years’ experience working as a commercial property lawyer and have an entrepreneurial approach and the ability to work on your own initiative. Experience of working with charities and charity property would be advantageous but is not essential. You must be able to work to tight deadlines, manage a heavy workload and support and train junior staff and trainees. You must be commercially minded, highly motivated and forward thinking with a proactive and positive attitude. A proven track record in meeting billing targets is essential and must be coupled with a caring, friendly and professional manner.

In return we can offer a varied caseload of commercial property sales and purchases, leases acting for both landlords and tenants, development refinancing and dealing with charities and charity property. We have a supportive work environment, a genuine commitment to work life balance, voluntary involvement with our charity of the year and the chance to join a caring and friendly team.
