We are hiring - Partner, Commercial Property

We are offering the unique opportunity to inherit a successful, high-quality Commercial Property practice due to an impending retirement.

This opportunity should appeal to a successful, partner with in-depth experience in commercial property / real estate, who has the entrepreneurial flair to grow their own and an inherited practice on their own terms.

Jurit LLP is a virtual law firm whose lawyers operate on an entirely remote basis.

A Legal 500 ‘One to Watch’ (2024) firm, we are made up of a team of over 40 people based across the UK – many of whom are lawyers who have come from Top 20 or Magic Circle firms or were in-house counsel at FTSE 100 companies.

Our practice provides City of London levels of service to a diverse array of large and small clients located nationally and internationally.

At Jurit, we all share common ambitions and values, and a focus on delivering expert insight and outstanding client service, with an appreciation that work is just one aspect of life.

We are looking for someone who enjoys the benefits of working flexibly on their own terms, but is able to collaborate well with colleagues.

With that in mind, we would like to recruit a partner who has the entrepreneurial flair to develop and grow the practice, delivering trusted advice founded on outstanding service, with the support of a fantastic infrastructure of practice management, accountants, marketing and business development professionals.

  • 20% of fees billed on work referred internally to others.
  • A share of residual profit at the end of the financial year.
  • Infrastructure support – from IT, finance, business development and marketing.
  • The freedom to work from home or wherever you choose.
  • A great team of likeminded individuals to work alongside.
  • Professional Indemnity insurance cover.

    • In property development investments, regeneration, co-ownership and property partnership joint ventures
  • Collaborate well with your peers on internal referrals
  • Be adept at undertaking the general responsibilities of partnership.
