Blake Morgan is one of the UK’s leading full service law firms, with offices in London, Wales, Thames Valley and the South Coast region. We provide our clients with practical and straightforward legal advice whatever their regional, national and international requirements. Our clients are commercial business, not-for-profit organisations, government agencies and private individuals.
We are currently looking for a Chartered Legal Executive to join our London based Real Estate team. The team provides advice on all areas of real estate and acts for a wide range of clients including developers, retailers, social housing, banks and lending institutions.
If successful you can expect high quality work related to secured lending matters and your responsibilities will be predominantly based around this area of work. You will also gain exposure to supporting work around:
• Purchase, sale and development of commercial property
• Investment and asset management
• Complex landlord and tenant advice
• Acquisition disposals
We can provide you with an excellent platform to develop both your technical ability and business development skills within a supportive and thriving team.
Whilst you will be part of a large real estate team which spans our other offices (especially Oxford, Reading, Southampton and Cardiff), you will mainly be working with the real estate team in our London office. You will likely soon develop close client relationships that will endure through your career. Our encouragement of a decent work/life balance and complementary interests will help you towards a strong long-term profile in this region.
