Unusual role for a ‘Head of Real Estate’ in the Leeds office of this national commercial firm, which is a full service brand and covers all aspects of real estate expertise from its UK office network.
Specific to Leeds they’re wanting to elevate the profile and potency of their commercial property team, and ideally that’ll be with a proven partner who may or may not bring a team with them. The firm is looking for someone with professional profile and who is known in developer and investor circles and who will bring a substantial book of work with them. As you’d expect the firm is open to an equity appointment to reflect the size of the hire they are looking to make and the strategic win that person will represent.
You’ll be joining a full-on national brand, and be able to draw on colleagues across a range of complimentary disciplines including projects, planning, construction, and environmental law. This brand is proven as regards acting for plcs and public sector clients so should not have issues around capability or traction with quality clients. This firm has the ability to shape a role to you so this will be a collaborative appointment rather than a prescriptive one.
This should be an interesting move perhaps for an ambitious real estate partner wanting autonomy and profile in the region and who’ll get that release from leaving a firm where they have other partners in Yorkshire to compete with. Or alternatively someone who has been in an equity berth for some years but has found their firm changing and who feels that they’d prefer to take a fresh step for the enjoyment and challenge that can bring to a professional at any stage in their career.
