As leading legal experts in the field of building and fire safety claims in residential construction they provide cutting-edge legal advice to clients who are operating at the coalface of unprecedented legislative change and regulatory developments in England.

The firm is looking for a lawyer 4pqe + with a passion for construction law to join the dynamic non-contentious construction practice.

You will have the confidence to advise on and negotiate construction contracts at face-to-face meetings, a drive to develop your industry, sector and commercial awareness and an enthusiasm for business development and networking.

Advise on matters concerning construction law (including key provisions, implied terms, certification, payment, variations, completion and delay, liquidated damages, extensions of time, loss and expense, standard insurance requirements and defects).

Advise on and draft/review construction contracts, project agreements and security documents (such as building contracts, development agreements, consultants' appointments, collateral warranties, assignments and novations, bonds and guarantees)

Consider and develop a comprehensive understanding of the main UK construction industry form of contracts, particularly the agreements that are of most relevance and use to the social housing sector and to RPs: top of the list is the JCT (a new suite is expected in 2023/24), the RIBA, CIC appointments and NEC.

Develop knowledge of various construction procurement methods that extend to construction management, management contracting, prime cost contracting, early contractor involvement and two stage tendering.
