Non Contentious Construction Associate (5-9 PQE), Bristol or London
The Construction team is based in Bristol and London and consists of 5 Partners and 9 other fee earners who work on a mix of contentious and non-contentious matters for both public sector clients and private sector clients who provide services to the public sector.
A vacancy has arisen in our Bristol office for a 5-9 PQE Associate to work in the Construction team which forms part of the firm's Commercial & Infrastructure department.
The successful candidate will have the ability to manage their own time efficiently, possess excellent drafting and legal analysis skills, and have an ability to liaise effectively with clients. Most importantly we are looking for ambitious lawyers who want to take on increasing responsibility for managing a junior team and taking on a front-line role in client management and business development. There is a route to partnership for the right individual.
Our market-leading construction team has a national reputation and undertakes a broad range of work. You would be advising on development/regeneration schemes, energy and waste projects, social and economic infrastructure construction and asset management and complex service outsourcing arrangements. We have a strong reputation in the local authority and health markets advising clients operating in housing, infrastructure, leisure, rail, highways, waste management and renewable energy under traditional, partnering and PFI/PPP arrangements.
As you would expect we advise on all standard form and bespoke documentation and have extensive experience of advising on all of the PPP models (including PFI) and the development of outsourcing and other partnership forms of working. Our experienced team also advises clients on all their formal dispute resolution needs within the increasingly complex construction and engineering market. Whenever defects or claims occur, we will quickly provide a comprehensive, practical and cost effective response that could include negotiation, Alternative Dispute Resolution (including mediation), adjudication, arbitration or litigation.
