Environmental/Planning/Litigation Solicitor 3+ PQE (Maternity cover (1 year+) with possibility to extend)

(Application deadline: 18 July 2022)

We have an opportunity for a Solicitor (3+ PQE) to join our small firm of dedicated environmental and planning law specialists. Litigation and planning expertise needed. Property experience an advantage. £35-£55k+ (depending on experience). 

We are based in Cambridge but work nationally, with a reputation for taking on and winning ‘David & Goliath’ cases.

You will help us advise clients about environmental and planning decisions by public authorities as well as nuisance. We help clients navigate the planning process, including preparing planning objections, representation at planning inquiries and local plan examinations, and bringing judicial review claims. We also advise clients suffering from noise, odour and other nuisance, including negotiation with neighbours, enforcement, and, where necessary, claims in civil or statutory nuisance.

We prefer someone willing to attend the office – at least initially – but will consider applications from those for whom home working is more practicable longer term. Flexible and/or part-time working possible.

The role is presently seen as for the maternity period, but could be extended.

Please send CV and covering letter by email, with subject line “Environmental/Planning Lawyer (ADM2/4)” to Hannah Norman, Practice Manager at hnorman@richardbuxton.co.uk.
