For Associate Solicitors looking to take a definitive next step in their careers, exposure to top clients, exciting large-scale work and excellent benefits, this could be your next opportunity to progress with a leading firm.

This quickly growing Top 50 firm has over 30 Legal 500 Tier 1 rankings and is one of the finest legal brands operating in the UK. Their award-winning Real Estate team is seeking an Associate (1-4 PQE) to join their modern Edinburgh office.

Due to a flat hierarchical structure, cooperative and open working environment and premium clients, the business has attracted some of the leading legal experts in the UK. These staff members have developed expertise across a range of practice areas, gaining countless accolades from the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners, both as a firm and as individuals.

Positive reports about the supportive and nourishing working environment are reflected in the company's revenue, which has shown exponential growth and resulted in expansion across the UK. In part, this is due to the firm's belief that staff are the key to their success, which results in heavy investment in staff development and a flexible approach to work-life balance.

Taking on an innovative and forward-thinking mindset, this firm seeks to encourage ambition and creativity and takes real steps to go the extra mile for the clients, without compromising the happiness of their employees.
