Senior Associate – Planning

Our client has a rare opportunity for a Solicitor at Senior Associate level to join the London Planning team. This is a hands-on role, with the opportunity for growth to help to develop the scope of work which is already carried out for a mixture of developers and housebuilders, on projects in town and country planning, highways, compulsory purchase, planning litigation, enforcement, DCO and infrastructure matters (including compensation).

The firm acts for eighteen of the UK’s biggest housebuilders (including Taylor Wimpey and Barratt) on strategic schemes in London and the Southeast; the size of schemes ranging from 30 to 3,000-unit schemes, including garden villages.

You will work closely with the Planning Partners in developing your career to Legal Director level. You will be a key figure in the growth of the London presence, and will be required to be actively involved in business development, attending networking and client events in London.

As well as advising on mainstream Planning law, the team deals with related systems and practice areas such as compulsory purchase, heritage law, environmental impact assessment, BNG, town/village greens, community infrastructure levy and public rights of way.

This opportunity is open to a Solicitor with at least 5 years’ PQE. Alongside fee earning, you will enjoy business development and will be active within the London market.
