Construction Associate/Senior Associate

City of London

Legal 500

Are you looking for a platform to progress, or potentially working within a top-heavy department looking for a route to Partnership?

This firm is very well known for their high level of expertise with the public sector, local and central government. That being said, they still have a very strong private arm of the business. The firm are a well-known nationwide legal 500 firm and work with some of the biggest insurance companies in the industry. They have a team of 60 members of staff in London and they pride themselves on being able to offer flexibility in terms of work. Many staff often work from home and have flexible working hours, they boast a friendly working environment where progression is on the cards for the right candidate. The firms culture is very different to most City firms and have a really friendly, progressive and dynamic working environment where career progression is at the heart of what they do.

You will be joining a Construction team of 10. The client base spans Central and Local Government as well as a mix of different industry sectors, this broadness makes for an interesting role. The caseload will mainly be non-contentious work, although the firm are happy to consider someone looking for a mixed contentious/non-contentious role as they do have lots of contentious work. You will deal with advisory work, procurement, project management, construction contracts, development agreements, security documentation and supply chains. On the contentious side, you will deal with breach of contracts, high court cases, professional negligence and other matters.

You be a Construction Lawyer with at least 5 years PQE. You will have strong experience of non-contentious work, although if you do deal with a mixed caseload and would like to continue to do so I would urge you to apply. The firm are happy to look at senior associates looking for a route to Partnership or Partners looking for a lateral move. Salary is very competitive and very negotiable depending on your background.
