There is a certain amount of work there at the moment, some that is referred out and can be brought back into the firm, some that is handled by non-construction lawyers, this work can be consolidated giving a base of work immediately, however there will be the need to develop this further. There will be plenty of support in doing so as the firm have a highly collegiate approach, across the firm as well as within the teams, they have a flourishing and busy property team that handles both residential and commercial development work, they also have an outstanding business development and marketing team which would offer every support.

They pride themselves on an innovative approach and commit to investing time and resources into building relationships with clients to understand their goals and achieve them, as well as providing added value to their businesses.
The kind of work that they would be looking for someone to handle is a broad range of construction and engineering issues including work for developers, tenants or funders. Ideally you would handle both contentious and non-contentious construction matters however they understand that a lot of lawyers focus on one or the other and are happy to hear from lawyers who focus on either.

Furthermore the quality of the lawyers across the practice is first class, something that can often be overlooked if you are moving from a national to a smaller frim, but the value of which can't be overstated. Many of their partners have moved from larger national practices in the search of self-determination and a more simplistic approach.
