Our Real Estate team in Holborn are seeking a construction lawyer with between 1 – 5 PQE.
Legal directories Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 rank Russell-Cooke amongst the leading property teams in London with clients describing the team as "proactive and responsive, as well as imaginative in their approach to difficult situations."
We handle varied and high quality work, dealing with all values of transactions including substantial transactions, as part of a mix of work which includes portfolio acquisitions and disposals; the acquisition of sites for commercial, industrial, residential and mixed use development; the grant, renewal and termination of leases and related matters; and joint venture agreements, conditional sale and purchase contracts.
We are particularly interested in people who have focussed on domestic UK construction and have lots of experience of dealing with JCT contracts and professional appointments. Some understanding of procurement models and EU Regulated procurement would also be beneficial. In addition, candidates will have strong experience in non-contentious construction work which will include familiarity with drafting negotiating and analysing the usual construction documents (building contracts, appointments and collateral warranties and similar) and general development agreements and will have worked directly with clients on all aspects of construction projects. Some experience of assisting with contentious construction work will be useful but not essential. Ability and desire to be involved in business development and to take a lead in building up the construction work will be core requirements.

Russell-Cooke offers an excellent opportunity to join a stimulating work environment working alongside friendly and supportive colleagues, pro-active and client-focused in its approach with career development opportunities.
