BBS Recruitment is currently recruiting for an experienced Lawyer in a temp position for our client. The successful candidate will be a proactive and hardworking individual with prior experience within a role.

Job Role:

We are seeking an able, proactive commercial property lawyer with significant experience of working on regeneration projects to work in our legal regeneration team.

Hackney’s legal services is a great place to work which enables and supports the Council to provide an effective and value-for-money service. The borough’s property regeneration lawyers sit within the Legal Business and Growth Team and provide clear, consistent and accurate legal advice to clients in the Regeneration Team and across the wider Council if necessary.

The successful candidate would be expected to provide legal advice on a wide range of property matters in relation to regeneration and CPO matters.

They would also be expected to deal with acquisition and sales, commercial leases, lease renewals, enfranchisement, sales and acquisitions.

This is a challenging role that involves taking responsibility for a mixed caseload of commercial and some residential property matters in the wider context of Hackney’s award winning Regeneration Programme.

Hackney is one of London’s most diverse and dynamic boroughs, stretching from the edge of the City, to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in the tech, media, fashion and other creative industries.

Hackney has more green space than any other inner London borough, some of the capital's best schools, and first class transport connections, which combined with excellent local public services and a thriving arts, cultural and retail sector, are fast making it one of London's most popular areas to live, work and visit.

The challenge for Hackney is to make sure that the borough's economic growth provides benefits for everyone who lives here, and to create opportunities that will transform the lives of local people.

Lawyers represent clients in civil or criminal trial and present evidence for their defense. A lawyer conducts research on legal issues and is qualified to interpret laws, regulations, and rulings. They draw up legal documents like wills, deeds, contracts, lawsuits, and appeals.
