Full time
Contract type

Our client is a well rated Newcastle firm with good profile and a comprehensive range of services for commercial clients, including plcs, large regional businesses and SME/OMBs. Their focus is primarily UK work, though some of their matters do have an international aspect to them. Their construction expertise spans a broad range of projects, developments, infrastructure and engineering matters, and they have non-contentious capability as well as experience in litigation.

They are looking to recruit a mid-level (c3-8yrPQE) lawyer from a contentious background who will focus on contentious Construction work. Ideally a candidate will be coming from a construction team already, but failing that the firm are prepared to consider a commercial litigation lawyer who has good complex case experience and who would be keen to head down the construction law route and who have vocalise their enthusiasm for that opportunity. You'll be keen to involve yourself in adjudication, arbitration, and dispute resolution, and you'll be wanting to develop client relationships and prioritise client care.

In this particular firm personality counts for a lot. They have a very open communication style and they encourage their people to develop their own individual style and to build their confidence. Anyone wanting to be part of a dynamic brand which isn't necessarily as 'corporate' as some of those in the Top 50 will appreciate this particular law firm for its points of difference. The firm wants to make a long term appointment, but relocators to Newcastle will be considered if they can demonstrate a connection to the region.
Florit Brooke advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
