About Eversheds Sutherland:
Eversheds Sutherland is not your average law firm and we're not looking for average people. We do things differently - in the way we treat our people and the service we provide. That's how we've become one of the largest law firms in the world and a great place to work and develop your career.
The Eversheds Sutherland Real Estate practice has status and substance. External commentators often refer to us as one of the largest Real Estate practices and there are very few firms that have such a varied portfolio of work. We aim to be first to the market for solutions for our clients and work seamlessly across borders, integrating our specialists as they need them. The team includes leading experts working on virtually every form of major infrastructure and development project in the market today; shaping the law and delivering the projects that matter. We have an open and friendly and working environment.
The Cambridge Real Estate team has an enviable client list covering development, investment and corporate real estate work. The team has an excellent reputation for its particular specialisms in hotels, senior living, strategic land, housebuilders, transport and regeneration.
We want to develop well rounded lawyers. You would focus on work for our developer clients with the further opportunity to advise investor and corporate real estate clients.
You would manage your own caseload with significant client contact as well as working as part of the team on larger transactions. There would also be plenty of opportunities to work on a broad range of other commercial real estate transactions.
Skills and experience:
• Strong technical skills and excellent academic qualifications.
• In addition you will be able to demonstrate exceptional organisation skills as well as your high attention to detail.
• You will provide a first rate client service both internally and externally.
• We envisage someone with 0-4 years PQE
You should be a team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical approach to your workload. A commitment of delivering quality service is essential, as is the ability to juggle the demands of a heavy workload.
A band of PQE as advertised on a role does not preclude applications from those candidates that may have more or less PQE. Our intention is only to indicate a guideline as to how long we would expect a qualified lawyer to have practised so as to have gained the necessary skills for the role as described.
We’re a modern, progressive law firm committed to diversity. We’re driven by new ideas; we’re excited by new approaches; and we’re also refreshingly down-to-earth. We think differently and we’ve built a culture where individual skills and personalities can shine through. At Eversheds Sutherland, we believe that innovation comes from a culture of genuine equality and diversity and we are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process, or once in post.
Our Cambridge team operates a number of flexible working arrangements which support a richer working experience.
