JOB TITLE Senior Solicitor / Associate (4+ years PQE) – Real Estate/Commercial – Hotel Focused Based in Edinburgh REPORTING TO

Robert Asher, Partner JOB PURPOSE
The Real Estate practice at Brodies is top ranked by the independent legal directories Chambers &
Partners and The Legal 500, and is regarded by market commentators as the leading practice in the
Scottish market in recent years.

Whilst Brodies have always advised clients in respect to transactions in the Hospitality sector, the Firm
has recently expanded its practice in this area considerably. Robert Asher, a partner with 20 years'
experience in the industry and a thriving global practice, has recently joined the Firm. Accordingly, we
currently have an opportunity for a mid-level solicitor or junior associate to join a team that focuses on
hotel-related matters, and in particular on hotel management agreement and related work and
transactions involving branded residential developments. The Firm represents several of the leading

the Middle East as well as in the UK.

We anticipate that the role will initially be split between hotels work and mainstream commercial property
work, with a particular focus on investment and development deals in the Alternatives Sector but over
time would focus increasingly on hotel work. This role will be client facing and involve building and
maintaining client relationships on an ongoing basis.
