Stone King LLP currently have an opportunity for a senior commercial property lawyer to join the firm at any one of our office locations: Bath, London, Cambridge, Birmingham and Leeds.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced solicitor, in support of our top tier education sector practice, to play a leading role in business development and the strategic direction of the education sector at Stone King. The scope of the work is very broad and ranges from academy conversions to schools granting and taking leases, as well as an increasing number of complex high value site acquisitions and disposals as schools develop their property strategies. We act for a number of large multi academy trusts and increasingly our work revolves around servicing their needs. The department also deals with charity and commercial property work and the candidate would be expected to assist with those aspects where necessary.
The successful candidate must have significant experience of education work, whether in the sector generally, at local authorities or private practice.
The role includes responsibility for management of education sector work within the commercial property team, and will in any event include supervising more junior members of the team. There will be a significant amount of business development activity required, in particular responding to the large number of invitations to tender the education team receives, as well as taking a role in client relationship management. The role will require travel to any of our other locations or off site as client demands require.
Stone King LLP is a proud Investor in People and recently received ongoing recognition as a top tier firm by the 2017 Legal 500 Directory. Six of the firm’s top people have been acclaimed as ‘Leading Individuals’ with 30 more recommended in their fields of legal expertise.
