Newly Qualified Solicitor
Construction – Newly Qualified - Greater London
Our Client, an award-winning law firm with a stellar reputation dating back hundreds of years, is looking to grow their Construction Team with the appointment of a Junior Lawyer in their Greater London office.
The firm offers a full spectrum of legal services and has a long history and big ambitions, with over 140 Lawyers, professional advisers, paralegals and business services staff across two locations. Core strengths lie in Real Estate, Litigation, Corporate & Commercial, and Private Wealth, representing individuals and businesses alike, throughout the UK.
Ranked in Tier 1 in Chambers & Partners, the team is headed up by a partner recognised as a leader in the field. Experienced and highly respected, the Construction and Engineering Team advises regional and national clients on a wide range of issues at all stages, from the outset of a project through procurement and beyond.
Whilst initially concentrating on contentious work (including litigation, adjudication and mediation), the successful candidate will be expected to undertake a mix of both contentious and non-contentious construction work.
You will from the outset be given the opportunity to work directly with clients on some of the leading national and regional projects across a broad range of sectors. Work will include; drafting building contracts and associated sub-contracts; complete development agreements; project monitoring and dispute avoidance, participating in cross department work with other teams as required, and maintaining regular contact with the client.
As the successful candidate you should have a real passion for construction work. Ideally you should have a degree of experience as a newly qualified Solicitor or competed the relevant seat during your training. A good academic record is required, as is the desire to business develop, which will include attending marketing and networking events and assisting with the preparation of seminars and relevant news articles.
This is an exceptional and exciting opportunity to join one of the region’s leading teams in Construction Law, offering a clear path to develop within the group to a more senior level. For more information, please email Marc Jones at email@example.com, or call, 0207 8136298, or 07545 641832.
