We are looking for an experienced commercial property lawyer with wide ranging expertise including acquisitions, disposals, lease renewals and public sector led regeneration schemes.

Located in the heart of the Thames Gateway, Thurrock has one of the most exciting planning and regeneration agendas in the country; centred on 6 major growth hubs including London Gateway Port and Logistics Park (the largest of its kind in Europe) and Purfleet Centre, which will see the provision of up to 2,850 new homes, the creation of a new town centre and the provision of a range of employment opportunities. The scale of the local agenda presents an interesting mix of work for the specialist lawyer who relishes a challenge and the opportunity to help shape Thurrock’s future. If you have the skills to help us develop our potential, we will reward you with the chance to fulfil yours.
