Job Details

Commercial law firm in London, listed in the directories for the work it does in Construction law is looking to recruit two contentious Construction Solicitors/Barristers of 0 to 2 and 3 or more years’ PQE/Call. Our client is recruiting due to strong client work demand. The team is a highly reputable full-service construction law team providing transactional advice through to dispute avoidance and dispute resolution advice relating to large-scale construction and engineering projects in both the UK and internationally. The teams’ clients include real estate developers, housebuilders, property investment companies, contractors, sub-contractors and major engineering consultancies. They also act for the firm’s private clients on high value residential construction projects. Core dispute avoidance and dispute resolution services include advising on all forms of dispute resolution (adjudication/ arbitration/ litigation/ mediation/ expert determination) and giving strategic advice to clients to ensure that their dispute is resolved as cost effectively as possible whilst maintaining the best possible outcome. The successful candidates will act for a wide range of national and international clients (including government bodies, sponsors, funders, developers, employers, operators, constructors, sub-contractors and professional teams) on complex and high value construction disputes, including UK adjudications, arbitrations and TCC litigation, dealing with a wide range of matters, such as final account and delay claims, quality of build claims, construction insolvency, bond claims, ACM cladding, other fire safety defects claims, professional indemnity and other insurance-related claims.

You will work collaboratively as part of a cohesive team, to execute large-scale, high-value, client matters to the highest standard. If you are newly-qualified you will have gained experience of Construction law matters during your training and if you are already qualified, you will have experience of contentious construction work and, in particular, UK adjudications and/or TCC litigation and/or arbitration and other forms of dispute avoidance/ resolution (mediation, expert determination etc). Our client will also consider candidates who currently undertake a mix of contentious and non-contentious work but would like to focus on contentious matters.
