Anthony Collins Solicitors is a distinct values-led provider of legal services in our chosen sectors which include local government, housing, health and social care, and education (academies and MATs). In local government, where we already have a strong client base, our aim is to be leading advisors to the sector, partnering with councils, other organisations and policy makers to build a stronger more connected society.
Councils have changed. Nowadays, working with local government requires a high degree of commerciality and innovative thinking. Councils do big and exciting projects, set up and operate joint ventures and need legal advice which is right for that landscape. They require their lawyers to go beyond what the law is on the page, but who add real value by their understanding of the complexities of local government law and the landscape within which councils operate; and who understands that councils need fast, accurate and commercially driven advice about the deals they are entering into.
We are looking to recruit a senior property lawyer to strengthen our existing local government team. The role will require you to lead projects, look after people and clients; navigate the political dimension of working with councils and to be very strong commercially. Highly developed skills in managing and developing people are also essential. Experience in local government work, either in-house or working in a private firm is desirable. However, experience in high quality project/development work is of more importance to us.
The post offers an exciting opportunity to enhance your career whilst continuing to enjoy the professional challenge and sense of satisfaction you get from supporting less experienced lawyers, to grow and strengthen our highly-regarded team, and to serve our clients in innovative ways.
We are a supportive firm which values its staff and the contribution that you make.
