The Construction team has achieved an enviable reputation over many years having been involved in a number of high profile construction projects both in the UK and overseas. Covering both contentious and non-contentious work, the team excels at giving technical yet practical advice, taking into account the commercial realities under which our clients operate.
The strength and depth of the team make it one of the top UK construction teams. Most team members specialise in both the contentious and non-contentious markets as we consider this fundamental in offering a seamless service to our clients and makes our lawyers amongst the best in the region. However, we also have some members of the team who specialise in either contentious or non-contentious work. For this particular position we are ideally looking for someone who has focused more on the non-contentious side of construction work.
The team regularly advises on high value projects for both the public and private sectors. We are also actively involved in the Energy and Waste sectors. On the contentious side, we have a large volume of work ranging from court proceedings, adjudication to mediation.
What sort of person we’re looking for
Commercial solicitors who can work very closely with clients and provide first class practical advice, so we are looking for someone who focused on providing a service and who is technically proficient in construction work. We want someone who is constantly learning and wanting to develop their technical skills. However, in addition to that, we want someone who can help us to continue with the rapid growth of the Unit. We don’t believe in standing still so all our team are encouraged to get out there, raise their profile and network in order to help grow the department and promote their career prospects.
1-5 years pqe ideally with an emphasis on the non-contentious side of construction.
