Our Client is a UK-Top 100 commercial law firm providing a comprehensive range of legal services. They are looking to employ a Construction Solicitor to join their London Team.
Previous experience in a construction and engineering department is a given for this role which will focus on contentious construction work; however, candidates with a mixed skill are also encouraged to apply as the team has a significant non-contentious practice as well and they are very open to growing the team in the most effective way possible.
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 they are looking for ambitious lawyers who want to take on challenging work in the development of their careers. The partners have ambitious plans for growth and so career prospects are excellent for the right candidates.

You would be advising on development/regeneration schemes, energy and waste projects, social and economic infrastructure, construction and asset management, complex service outsourcing arrangements and professional negligence claims.
