TRANSACTIONAL CONSTRUCTION LAWYER – ANY UK OFFICE
We are currently looking to recruit a talented transactional (non-contentious) construction lawyer to join our Projects team in one of our UK offices (Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London or Manchester). The nature of the structure of the construction lawyers within the Projects team nationally means that we can be flexible on PQE and finding good quality candidates is more important than a particular level of PQE. We are however looking for candidates with good construction experience so candidates should be between 1-4 years PQE.
Please outline the preferred location in the application.
The Candidate Required
The successful candidate will have a strong grounding in transactional construction work in energy, infrastructure and/or property related transactional (non-contentious) construction work. They will ideally have gained experience in a City firm or a strong commercial regional practice. Candidates must be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. They will be a team player with a strong client focussed approach. They will also have a strong academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills.
Background to the Projects team
We are a tier 1 practice with an unrivalled reputation in acting for employers, developers, funders, project companies, contractors, consultants and insurers. We act for over half of the UK's top 50 contractors, a large number of the top contractors worldwide and an impressive range of private and public sector clients. Our transactional construction lawyers act across the sectors including energy (nuclear, renewables, conventional and oil and gas), infrastructure, real estate, waste, education, transport and health.
* The very best national and international construction work.
* Early responsibility and opportunities to develop client relationships.
* Genuine long-term career prospects supported through our "best in class" training and our Academy personal development programmes.
