First time Appointment – Construction Partner to £650,000

Reference: SP9008EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Construction - Non-contentious Construction
A dynamic leading national law firm which is steadily going through the process of internationalisation. This law firm has recently made some very high-profile appointments of leading UK lawyers and has a real momentum in terms of recruitment. Real Estate is at the heart of this law firm, with over 200 real estate lawyers and c.£40 million in revenue. Currently there is a construction offering, but importantly not in London and the current construction lawyers are contractor focused. The firm is looking to make a strategic hire in London for a developer focused construction partner with mainly non-contentious experience. You will be based in London and lead/build the construction practice but this could be a larger nationally orientated role for the right partner. They will consider senior associates as an immediate partner. There is existing work and you will benefit from ‘first mover advantage’.

Following and background – for an immediate partnership role, a modest following will be required of £300,000 plus and for a national leadership role the firm will expect a following of £750,000 plus, and a reputation in the market.

At Edwards Gibson we have undertaken a large amount of work in the Real Estate sector in private practice, over the last 18 months placed close to 25 partners in real estate and related practice areas.

Apply on line or contact SLOANE POULTON at sloane.poulton@edwardsgibson.com or +44 207 153 4903 to find out more about this or similar opportunities.
