Planning Lawyer, Partner to c. £500,000 Back to List

London. Succession issue in leading planning team


Since the rise of boutique law firms, planning partners have become something of an endangered species in Big Law. Not so at this global law firm which continues to value, even cherish, them!  The firm has strong credentials in both direct real estate and infrastructure/ projects and, as such, needs high-end planning input on both.



A looming succession issue requires the planning team to re-stock with a connected lateral, ideally who can handle both infrastructure and real estate related work. The team will have a flow of matters, particularly on the infrastructure side, however they are keen to avoid hiring a “plodder” so you will need at least a partial practice which will go to quantum.
