Property Solicitor, Inverness

Harper Macleod has an exciting opening for a property solicitor.

The successful candidate will work in a team that specialises in rural property transactions and acts for a wide variety of clients across a broad range of work - from crofting law to renewable energy projects and from agriculture farm purchases to some of the most significant community buyouts under the Scottish Government’s landmark Land Reform legislation.

The modern Rural Economy is a major focus of Harper Macleod, which this year extended its presence in the north of Scotland by acquiring another law firm in Elgin, Moray and also helped to organise the inaugural Scottish Highlands and Islands Rural Economy Conference & Awards.

This position provides an opportunity to be part of the continued growth of the largest legal team in the Highlands, Islands and Moray, working from our Inverness office which is home to 25 lawyers.

Experience in rural property is not essential and the successful candidate will provide transactional and advisory support across a range of matters, working with Partner Calum MacLeod, who is one of only two Accredited Specialists in Crofting Law in Scotland.

You will gain exposure to commercial transactions in a rural context, and have the chance to contribute to the growth of an exciting practice in a fantastic part of Scotland in which to live and work.
