Maclay Murray & Spens LLP is one of Scotland’s pre-eminent law firms. The firm operates across the UK from offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.
The Real Estate Practice Area
At MMS, our Real Estate division, which is widely regarded as one of the top ranked practices in Scotland, represents clients based across the UK in every sphere of the property industry from banks and institutional funds, to developers and property companies to retailers and leisure operators. We also act for a growing number of operators, developers and funders in the renewables and energy and natural resources sectors.
Due to the continuous growth of our Real Estate team, we have an opportunity for an experienced Senior Solicitor, with 2-4 years PQE, based in our Edinburgh office.
The successful candidate will enjoy working in a highly productive environment where individuals gain exposure to high quality work and opportunities to develop. The role will involve carrying out a wide range of core commercial property work.
Candidates should have a proven ability within Real Estate, ideally with experience of asset management work (e.g. shopping centres), with exposure and knowledge of Landlord / Tenant leasing. They will need to work effectively both individually and as part of a dynamic team. Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential, along with the ability to work to tight deadlines within a commercially driven environment. Candidates will be required to demonstrate the drive and enthusiasm necessary to ensure that we continue to deliver first class legal and commercial advice to our clients.
It would be preferable if candidates were dual qualified to practice in Scotland and England/Wales, but this is not essential.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a first class team within a progressive and social firm where individuals can grow and develop their careers. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package that you would expect from a leading UK law firm.
