About the firm

We’re excited to support the growth of a highly regarded and dynamic regional firm who is seeking a Senior Property Litigation Lawyer to lead the team and contribute towards further growth. With a strong local and regional profile and an impressive client base, the firm has experienced exceptional growth over the past few years and is now one of the largest practices in the Devon and Somerset area. With offices in South Devon, North Devon and Exeter, the firm prides itself on collaboration and a ‘low hierarchy’ environment where individuals are encouraged to progress at their own pace. This opportunity is perfectly suited to a bright and motivated senior lawyer to take on a key leadership role within a forward looking and collegiate firm.

About the role

Our client is seeking an ambitious property disputes lawyer who wishes to take the next step in their career. This role offers significant responsibility in terms of managing the existing client work, strategic business development and broader development of skills, knowledge and expertise within the team.  You will have the opportunity to supervise and support the development of less experienced members of the team, ensuring everyone has the skills and confidence to deliver an exceptional experience to clients every day.

Equally, you will be well supported and encouraged by other senior members of the Dispute Resolution team, as well as the wider Property team and colleagues across the firm. You’ll be encouraged to engage in business development activities where you can, promoting your own profile with referrer contacts in the region along with that of the firm. As part of an actively collaborative culture, you will benefit from client introductions from colleagues, and reciprocate where you can whilst promoting the best interests of your clients.

Depending upon your preference, you will be based from offices in Exeter, Torquay or Barnstaple with hybrid working.

About you

As an experienced Property Litigator, you will be accustomed to handling complex work with independence whilst supporting the development of less experienced members of the team. You are likely to have gained some experience of managing team members, allocating work and providing quality supervision in your current or previous role, although support will be provided as you develop these skills further. Your primary focus will be to develop the firm’s property litigation services, requiring good commerciality and an understanding of effective business development strategies.

As an enthusiastic Property Litigation Lawyer, you take pride in delivering exceptional client service and encourage your team to do the same. You have developed a passion for working with a wide range of clients, providing appropriate, insightful and commercially relevant advice to meet with their specific needs and interests. You focus on keeping up to date with the latest legal developments affecting Property Litigation and work proactively to consider potential impact on your clients.

You are readily able to demonstrate your strong analytical and communication skills and work strategically with clients and as part of a team. Being resilient to work under pressure by organising yourself effectively, you will be able to meet deadlines as needed. You will possess proven rapport building skills and you are tenacious, thorough, and attentive to detail, taking pride in the high standards of your work.
