  • Dealing in all aspects of commercial property transactions including land acquisitions and disposals, development site acquisitions, funding and business leases
  • Developing and growing our commercial client offering.

You will work closely with our commercial property solicitors and be part of the same team. Our solicitors are friendly and committed and their expertise has been recognised by The Legal 500. We have excellent, long-term relationships with our clients, giving you an opportunity to make your mark and progress your career.
