Our client, a regional Legal 500 law firm have an excellent opportunity for a Non-Contentious Construction Solicitor ideally with 2-8 years PQE to join their highly regarded multidisciplinary Construction team based in Chelmsford.
You will deliver succinct high-quality commercial advice to a range of high quality clients including developers, consultants, main contractors, and specialist subcontractors. You will advise on high value projects throughout England and Wales as well as abroad and will be confident in drafting and negotiating a full range of construction documentation. This includes advising on many different standard forms such as JCT and NEC, together with bespoke documentation.
The successful candidate will have proven experience and enjoy handling a caseload covering a full range of non-contentious construction work. You will have experience of all the major standard forms of contract as well as bespoke construction documentation.
Experience of contentious construction matters would be useful but not essential. A balance of both types of work could be provided but the majority of work would be non-contentious.
The successful candidate will have excellent client and team communication skills, drafting and negotiation skills. You should also be familiar using a case management system.
The role will involve marketing and business development and therefore the ideal candidate must be flexible enough to work outside normal office hours when required.
Interviews will be conducted via video calls.
