Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a senior real estate associate (or Counsel) with sophisticated “dirt” real estate experience, including joint ventures, purchase and sales, ground leases, and development transactions for its New York office.
The team represents commercial landlords and tenants in all aspects of their corporate facility leasing needs. The team has particular experience negotiating lease transactions on behalf of very interesting corporate tenants, including Fortune 500 companies, telecoms, news media, publishing, television/movie production and sports and entertainment companies.
The firm’s cross-border work is supported by offices in London, Mexico City and Shanghai.
The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.
One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.
The firm is also incredibly flexible, with most teams working 2-3 days in the office but reasonable accommodations being made for more or less office time.
Candidates must be qualified in the State for which they are applying. Pay is in accordance with BigLaw scale.
