The opportunity

Bold, dynamic and growing rapidly, Laurus is the law firm that’s redefining the legal experience.

We are looking for like-minded people to help us evolve our business and enhance our reputation - and yours. In return we offer a highly competitive salary and benefits package as well as many opportunities for growth, mentoring and development.

Having established ourselves as one of the City's top firms for residential property matters, we are growing our team to capitalise on our exciting and dynamic client base.

We believe in modern working practices and are happy to consider candidates who are interested in working flexibly or in an agile way, based in either Aldgate or Clapham.

You’ll be a qualified solicitor or Legal Executive with at least 2 years post qualified experience, although we are happy to consider relevant pre-qualified experience. You will need to be pragmatic, have an eye for detail, and be prepared to think on your feet. You should have solid experience of a wide range of residential property matters with technical expertise, outstanding client care skills, and the ambition to work in a dynamic environment. You may wish to be considered for a future leadership role.

As an Associate in the Property team, you’ll be the operational backbone with which the department stands. You’ll be an ambassador of the firm, working directly with and for our key clients and continuing to build upon our reputation for excellence.

Some key areas of expertise are as follows:

  • Sales, Purchases, Transfers and Re-mortgages of residential leasehold and freehold property.
  • Lease Extensions.
  • Auction Sales and Purchases.
  • Managing and building relationships with clients and introducers.
  • Supervising paralegals, trainees, and support staff. 

Since inception, Laurus has quickly gained a reputation for excellence and work with London's most reputable estate agents, some pre-eminent investors, developers, house builders, and the high net worth.

We use a people-first approach, putting clients at the centre and building a professional, entrepreneurial culture from within. Our expertise goes beyond understanding the law and acting upon it – it’s giving our clients the confidence of having us by their side, when it matters most.

To us, that’s Legal Wellbeing.
