The role would be perfect for a 1/2 PQE Solicitor/Legal Counsel who has experience in litigation and drafting and negotiating commercial contracts, and ideally some knowledge of property management and housing. Salary is very competitive, and will be based on individual candidate's experience.

With over 25 years' experience in the property management business, the organisation provides a cheaper and more effective alternative to traditional property security, and as such has grown to be the market leader in the industry. The business now has offices throughout the UK and Europe and their clients include residential property owners, commercial businesses, and government organisations.

The successful applicant will have responsibility for drafting NTD documents and negotiating various commercial contracts, ensuring compliance with housing legislation, advising on risk relating to contracts, reviewing outstanding litigation and managing cases with external counsel, monitoring and formulating compliance checklists, and training colleagues on internal legal and compliance matters as appropriate.
The role would suit a 1/2 PQE Solicitor or Legal Counsel who is looking for a more autonomous role.
Applicants should demonstrate confident and tenacity - you will be required to handle matters autonomously and take ownership of legal issues throughout the business, in addition to instructing external solicitors.
