Construction & Engineering Solicitor - Leeds

Our client is a leading international law firm with exceptional pedigree in the field of construction across a broad range of sectors. Energy represents a key field of growth which is spread across the full range of Oil and Gas, Nuclear and Renewables - increasingly so in the latter case and an area which is key aspect for growth.

We are acting on behalf of the construction and engineering team in Leeds. Given the national and international profile of the firm they represent a great place to develop your career within non-contentious construction work. Both locally and nationally the team are absolutely stand out and the work profile, size and scale of projects and capacity to shape and develop the construction landscape can't be understated.

There is desire to recruit at around 1-4 years PQE, someone from a non-contentious transactional construction background and for anyone working with that level of experience this is an opportunity to work on some of the biggest and best work.

That is, of course, the dream. The reality is that experience can be hard to come by and so the team are trying to think flexibly around experience. It isn't a complete re-train per se but having construction experience isn't an absolute. If you have experience with commercial contracts of commercial real estate then there are inevitable overlaps and provided the quality of that experience is good then the team are happy that with training and support the broader aspects of construction can be taught.

In this latter instance the real test will the underlying reason as to why a move into construction holds appeal. 

The team have achieved great results in developing junior lawyers who have gone on to have excellent careers in this area of law and the scope for progression is good.

The construction team stands as a true leader in its field and provides not just a great platform to advise on some interesting and international profile work but also a team that will provide full support and mentoring to allow you to progress. 

If you are a Construction Solicitor in Leeds or a commercial or real estate lawyer with ambitions in the construction space then please contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion.
