Anthony Collins Solicitors is a market leading firm within our specialist sectors, particularly in social housing and the wider third sector. Based in Birmingham, we have a national client base and a team of lawyers who are genuinely passionate about the work that they do. Our approach is built upon long term relationships with clients and we can demonstrate this through a long and established client base.
We are looking to recruit a Property Lawyer (6-9 PQE) with some previous development experience to work in our Built Environment department. The role will include working with our Local Government, Social Business and Education clients as well as involvement in public/private development. An enthusiasm to work with our clients is essential, we are well placed to support and develop you in this field of work and so you do not need to have worked in these areas previously.
You would be joining a team that is at the forefront in its sector and has achieved this by focusing upon research, understanding client needs and communicating with our clients in ways which are personable, engaging and insightful and in written form clear and succinct.
This is a fantastic opportunity to become an integral part of a creative and supportive team with significant opportunities for meaningful career development.
