Our client is a global law firm with a network of UK offices including in Leeds, and has a market-leading projects team acting for private and public sector clients on domestic and international projects.

Their team is very busy hence they are looking to recruit at Senior Associate (5+PQE) level for a non-contentious Construction specialist, ideally that being a candidate with experience in and enthusiasm for infrastructure, transport and energy work.

A strong academic record and a background with a recognised commercial firm which has a credible Construction offering is essential if a candidate is to have the level of expertise to be able to slot into this team doing big ticket work. The expectation is that this lawyer will be comfortable with standard forms of contract, in particular NEC, FIDIC and JCT together with accompanying documentation (such as bonds, warranties , PCGs etc), and will be able to apply this experience to major energy and infrastructure projects work. You'll be drafting and negotiating documents for your own matters, albeit ultimately reporting to the matters Partner. This role will incorporate a particularly broad range of sectors and provide fantastic experience in the infrastructure environment.

The firm wants to couple this technical expertise with enthusiam, and a candidate who is keen to build client relationships and to make a visible contribution to team profile. You'll be working in a team and so it is anticipated that you'll assist with supervision of less experienced fee earners and be an active support to Legal Directors and Partners in the group.

A substantial opportunity for a non-contentious Construction specialist who wants to be in Leeds with an international firm which has plenty of work.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
