Property Disputes Associate (Telecoms)

Closing Date

Department

Property Litigation

Job Location

Bristol

Role

Lawyers

Description

"They have some very good lawyers. They are very
smart, very business-focused and very aware"- Chambers & Partners

We are looking for an Associate to join our highly
regarded Property Disputes team in Bristol, rated by Chambers &
Partners as a national leader outside London.

This is a great opportunity to join a team who are
seeing significant growth in work and a chance to build
relationships with some fantastic clients whilst working in a
collaborative team environment. You will be joining a successful
firm with a collegiate and supportive culture, which makes it a
rewarding place to work.

The practice

Our specialist Property Disputes lawyers excel in helping clients
resolve all kinds of disputes ranging from all aspects of landlord
and tenant to complex and highly technical development and land rights
disputes for telecom operators. The team handles cases at all levels
of the Court system, as well as before Tribunals and arbitration
panels, in order to represent the interests of clients. The practice
also provides advice on risk mitigation and management in the context
of potential disputes and property related regulation.

We have a premier client base and support these clients on a range of
market leading cases. Clients include Barratt Homes, Greystar, Western
Power Distribution, Cornerstone, Telefonica and Vodafone.

The focus of this particular role will largely be on disputes within
the Telecoms sector. Recent cases supported by the team in these areas include:

* We acted for Cornerstone in a number of claims for the acquisition
of rights under paragraphs 26 and 20 of the Electronic
Communications Code, over a number of central London buildings
including that owned by the University of the Arts, London;

* We acted for Vodafone Enterprise U.K. on lease renewal under the
Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 ("the Act"), where the
resultant renewal lease would be protected by the Electronic
Communications Code and not the Act.

The team

Led by Leona Briggs who is rated in both Chambers and
Partners and Legal 500, the team spans the Bristol and London
offices; in Bristol we are currently comprised of 2 Partners, 2
Legal Directors, 4 Associate Directors, 2 Senior Associates, 8
Associates, 2 Trainee Solicitors, 1 Legal Executive, 12 Paralegals
and 1 Solicitor Apprentice. We work across office with our London
colleagues and the team there comprises 2 Partners, 1 Associate
Director, 3 Senior Associates, 3 Associates and 1 Trainee Solicitor.

This role will primarily be supporting Leona Briggs and
Emily Van Schalkwyk, the partners in the team.

Technical skills and experience

Due to the technical nature of the practice, we are
looking for candidates who have worked within a recognised and
respected Property Litigation team and have a good track record in
managing a varied caseload. You will have strong drafting
skills and show an enthusiasm for getting to know a client's sector as
well as the relevant law. Evidence of having supervised more junior
team members would also be an advantage.

As a guide, due to the nature of the work and the
structure of the team, we are looking to appoint an Associate in
this area, although we will consider candidates with more or less experience.

Your career development

multi-award winning career development programme. At each stage of
your career this provides you with:

• clear expectations of your role and what it takes to
progress;
•high quality clients and work, with early
responsibility and client exposure;
• thorough assessment and
individual feedback from a range of experienced
colleagues;
•robust technical training with early skills based
development, increasingly tailored to you; and
•reward for
your contribution, progression and potential, rather than PQE or tenure.
