Equity partner – Commercial real estate


Are you a commercial real estate partner or partner-equivalent in your current law firm?

Are you looking to drive your legal career forwards, but craving more flexibility and innovation than traditional law firms offer? Are you tempted by the promise of “new style law firms”, but remain motivated by an ownership stake in the firm you build, rather than building it for external shareholders? Do you relish the excitement of joining a firm in its early stages, where your voice is heard, and you have a seat at the table when it comes to decision making?

Conexus Law is seeking a commercial real estate partner to join our team at equity level. Experience in the following would be an advantage:

  • Experience in Technology Infrastructure and communications assets (5G, IoT, data centres).
  • Leasing and licensing arrangements.
  • Experience working on acquisitions and disposals through corporate entities.
  • Experience of working with REITs.

About us

We are a firm of business lawyers, working globally to help clients deliver innovation in the built environment and technology sectors. We are inquisitive and immerse ourselves in our clients’ sectors, not just their business. We have a very clear strategy for our own growth and where they want to position ourselves – we are specialists who have no desire to be a law firm behemoth. We believe the best way to serve clients is by remaining flexible, by responding rapidly to changing needs and by ensuring that each job brings together the best of our team. This is an incredibly exciting time for us, and a real opportunity for partners with the passion to build a truly great place to work.

We are headquartered in London, but our culture and our infrastructure has been designed from the outset to enable our team to work anywhere. We have no preference about where you are based.
