My client is a thriving Top 100 firm with a full-service offering, and which enjoys an excellent reputation for advising prestigious commercial clients across a broad range of disciplines. The firm has recently expanded its construction offering but is looking to build on this further through the hire of a capable lawyer of circa 3+yrs PQE to bolster this already busy team.
You will be working on a broad range of construction matters, often with a contentious leaning, handling instructions including breach of contract, professional negligence, building defects and non-payment of service charges, as well as non-contentious matters such as drafting of NEC & JCT contracts, due diligence of contracts and agreements to appoint main contractors and sub-contractors. You will also have the opportunity to work alongside high calibre individuals within the construction law market and develop additional skills in mediation and arbitration to develop into an all-round construction specialist.
The firm acts for a high calibre client base including housebuilders, developers, funders, contractors and sub-contractors, providing legal advice on high value construction projects, and as such this represents an excellent opportunity for a specialist who is looking to handle top quality work on a regular basis.
The practice offers flexibility around working arrangements, including the opportunity to be primarily home-based, so candidates seeking a healthy work/life balance should be attracted by the scope this position offers. The firm also has a proven pedigree for promoting from within, so those for career advancement should also be interested in hearing more about this role.
