The commercial property team has a long-established reputation of working with commercial landlords, developers and business owners throughout Brighton & Hove and the South East. With an impressive client roster, the team undertakes a wide range of project work that is complex, varied and innovative. With increasing client demand, the team is looking to re-establish a strong presence in the City and appoint an experienced commercial property lawyer at either Solicitor or Associate level to lead its Brighton & Hove practice.

You will immediately inherit a wide range of client instructions and have the opportunity to build on the firm's existing and extensive professional network to drive new business.

The role also provides a clear career path for an experienced lawyer who wants to progress with the firm and ultimately to Partner level. You will be involved in high quality technical work from the start and encouraged to formulate your own business development strategy for the region, supported by the firm's business development and marketing professionals.

To be successful in your application, you will:

Be qualified solicitor, legal executive with at least 4 years' experience.
