HBJ Gateley Expand English Property Team In Glasgow

 

Are you an English Qualified Real Estate Solicitor interested in working for a Top 50 National firm, big enough for high-quality work and small enough for you to be noticed, supported and personally rewarded?

The HBJ Gateley English Real Estate team is made up of people who have previously worked in large corporate firms, in London and other major UK cities, and who have decided that they want to enjoy all that the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh have to offer, but without compromising on the quality of work that challenges ambitious and motivated real estate lawyers. 

Relocation support is available to make that happen for you too.

2015 proved to be another successful, profitable and exciting year for HBJ Gateley in Scotland, particularly for the market leading Real Estate Team. This is set to continue through 2016 as they continue to deliver high-quality legal advice to a large array of acquisitive clients including some of the UK’s largest companies.

From an already successful platform, HBJ Gateley are looking to further grow their English Real Estate team with the addition of a senior Real Estate Lawyer to be based in either their Glasgow or Edinburgh offices. This is a stand-out opportunity for a lawyer with at least 4 years PQE and dedicated English property experience to get involved in some of the best commercial property work currently being transacted in the UK in a truly supportive and friendly team who take pride in their consistent high-quality work and client-centric approach.

HBJ Gateley has a genuinely exciting,  down-to-earth, forward-thinking and entrepreneurial culture. As a mid-size national firm, they are not a huge faceless corporate entity yet still work with some of the UK’s largest companies   including BT plc, Lloyds Banking Group, Aegon, Santander UK Plc, Virgin Media, Waitrose, and Legal & General. They have also developed a strong client base in the SME property market, acting for some of the most acquisitive and successful investors and developers currently operating in the UK

The English Real Estate Team (which is part of the Real Estate Department) comprises a dynamic, industrious and personable group of talented lawyers who are busy with the full range of real estate transactions from single-asset and portfolio acquisitions and disposals to asset management, Real Estate finance and development work. All lawyers at the firm work closely with both clients and partners and enjoy the firms' philosophy of "if you are good enough, you are old enough" when it comes to promotion and career opportunities. Every lawyer will be noticed for their work and contributions and rewarded in return.

The team needs a Senior Solicitor / Associate/Senior Associate to work alongside the existing team of 12 dedicated English property lawyers and 6 dual qualified lawyers. The wider Real Estate Team in Scotland comprises in total 12 Partners and a further 43 lawyers, paralegals, legal executives and support staff. They have now firmly established themselves as one of the top real estate practices in Scotland with a deserved reputation as the go-to firm for English Real Estate work north of the border. Not only is the English Real Estate team the largest in Scotland it is also the most active, working with Scottish based clients, UK corporates and London and global funds and plc's. The firm has capitalised on the markets willingness since the recession to look outside of London for real estate legal services and now almost exclusively operate alongside Magic Circle, silver circle and large regional law firms transacting work that used to be the preserve of the City firms.  The team is made up of people who have previously worked in large corporate firms, in London and other major UK cities, and who have decided that they want to enjoy all that the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh have to offer but without compromising on the quality of work that challenges ambitious and motivated real estate lawyers.
