Manchester based, Legal 100 firm. This role will appeal to a construction solicitor with up to 5 yrs’ PQE.

What stands out about this position compared to others in the market?

Firstly it provides an enviable career move to a market-leading, construction team attracting excellent quality instructions.  What is unique compared to others is that you will be an integral part of a relatively small team. Rather than being one of a large number of associates and assistants, you be one of a few and so be well mentored and exposed to all aspects of work undertaken by the lead partners.

The team is retained by major developers as well as contractors and construction professionals including engineers, architects and surveyors providing a real diversity of work too.

Engaged in both contentious and non-contentious instructions for private and public sectors, typical instructions include:

  • Standard form contracts including JCT and NEC,
  • Professional appointments, warranties and indemnities,
  • Joint venture documentation,
  • Projects including Energy, Infrastructure, Transport and Utilities - across both private and public sectors,
  • Substantial disputes and litigation proceedings arising out of contractual breaches and negligence,
  • Conduct of multi-party actions,
  • Arbitrations and Mediations

Management style is straight talking yet supportive, in what is a high achieving and well-humoured team.

This is a UK headquartered firm, which is committed to the North West region and you will find an approachable and visible board that provides clear direction and strategy. The firm’s culture is inclusive and progressive with excellent resources available.

Flexible working is supported and to attract and retain the very best calibre staff, the firm pays highly competitive salaries together with a flexible and generous benefits package.
