Real Estate Lawyer, Edinburgh

Lawyer – Real Estate (Commercial) 

Vialex is looking for an enthusiastic and motivated lawyer to join its real estate team. The successful applicant would work alongside Senior Legal Director and Head of Real Estate, Katie Corrigan in the delivery of the day-to-day work, and in helping to build the team and shape its direction.  

The role is available on either an employee or a consultancy basis, to suit the candidate’s circumstances.

As a relatively new team (established June 2018) within a boutique firm, this is a unique opportunity to influence the team’s work and client base.

The firm’s existing client base is predominantly UK/Scottish-based medium size enterprises, operating in the technology, manufacturing, distribution, and professional services sectors and with a strong focus on hotel/leisure and food & drink businesses. 

The real estate team deals mainly with leasing (plus lease management) and buying/selling property for clients, to serve their operational needs. Geographically we cover Scotland and England/Wales. 

Flexible Working/Hours:

Flexible and home working were part of the Vialex way of working before the pandemic, and even more so now. However, we also believe that the office has an important function in building relationships between colleagues and helping to efficiently deliver client work, and some agreed time working from our office in the west end of Edinburgh would form part of the role. 

The role can be carried out on either a full-time or part-time basis, and we would be happy to discuss what suits the applicant.

Our core working hours are 9am to 6pm Monday to Thursday, and 9am to 5pm on a Friday, but for us the focus is on productivity and supporting colleagues to deliver the client work in a timely manner, and in a way which works for them.


We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. 


We offer competitive salaries and would discuss your expectations.
