Commercial Property Lawyers

Job Introduction

Our Commercial Property lawyers understand the challenges that come with commercial property transactions, they provide legal advice that's focussed and practical for a range of real estate clients from experienced Estates Managers, Developers and Investors to clients renting out property for the first time.  They take time to understand the client's commercial objectives and offer pragmatic and jargon free advice covering all aspects of commercial property law.

Partner, and Head of Commercial Property, Steve McGuigan, is looking to bolster the commercial property offering in Bristol by recruiting a number of lawyers of varying experience levels.  We're keen to get the right lawyers on board, where you're based or what hours you work and whether from home or the office is secondary so plenty of flex for the right lawyers.

Could this be your next career move?

Whilst you'll ideally be based in Bristol as part of a national team you'll be supporting our work for national clients. This means your work will be varied supporting our growing team acting for corporates (particularly in the real estate, aerospace, energy and banking sectors), charities, public sector bodies, schools and universities.  With our support you'll develop your skills, build client relationships, contribute to business development opportunities and supervise junior colleagues.

This opportunity will see you play an integral role supporting our innovation as we move into an exciting phase of developing software products to support our clients.  And as the team continues to grow, and your career develops, you'll play an active role in recruitment to help bring further talent into the firm.

Why choose us?

With around 450 employees we're a sizeable firm that still continues to grow, known for its friendly and welcoming culture where team work and collaboration is key.

For safety at this time our people are working remotely, though everyone is looking forward to getting back to the office at least part time, where our lovely culture is clear to see.  We work hard but we also have fun and we're missing that social interaction with each other that really embeds our culture.  That said, we have video meeting capability so we can still stay in contact as much as possible.  This unusual time has proved we can work effectively as a business from home if needs be, so whilst we don't yet know how things will look when we return to our offices, what we do know now, is we can discuss the individual flexible needs for every employee and team without agility barriers.

We offer a competitive salary, holiday allowance that increases after 12 months with the firm, contribute to your pension pot, have an informal dress code which allows you to dress appropriately for your day no matter what day it is, give you private healthcare and life assurance, as well as offering a range of discounts with local businesses and with so many excellent internal training programmes on offer to everyone it's so easy to develop and improve your skills.

We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity, we're striving to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background, can reach their full potential.

So who are we hoping will apply?

We're looking for a number of commercial property lawyers so you could be an newly qualified property solicitor or a Senior Associate with a good number of PQE years already under your belt from time spent in a mid-sized commercial property practice and anything in between.  Or you may have gained experience from a smaller practice doing a mix or residential conveyancing and commercial property looking to leap across to commercial property for good or you may even have a decent number of years commercial property experience through qualification of the CILEx route, we are equally interested in speaking with all of the above.

At VWV we love to engage with candidates who embed our values around teamwork, putting the client at the centre and commercial approach, so if those values resonate with you and you're looking to collaborate with a fantastic and supportive team then we’d love to hear from you.

You’re interested so what happens now?

Making the next career move takes careful consideration so you may prefer to talk it through first.  My name's Emma, I'm the Recruitment Manager here at VWV and you can reach me on 07384 256175.  

If you'd rather just apply, then click the apply button where you'll be asked to create a simple account and upload your CV. 

Polite note to recruitment agencies

Due to the level of interest we receive from direct candidates we won’t be considering applications via agencies for this role.
