Construction Solicitor - In-house

Passionate, Hard Working and Skilled Construction Lawyer Needed for an In-house Position:

Our client is looking for a Construction Solicitor to join their highly regarded in-house team based in South Staffordshire meaning that it is within easy commuting distance from Birmingham, Coventry, Lichfield and Burton upon Trent.

The ideal candidate will be:

  • A Construction Contracts lawyer focusing on the full remit of non-contentious and some aspects of contentious matters
  • Drafting, negotiating, and settling of various forms of engineering and construction standard (NEC, JCT and/or FIDIC) and non-standard contractual documentation
  • Advising the company on a wide range of construction arrangements and diverse capital projects, transactions and contracts

The successful candidate must be able to point to strong communication skills and good business and commerciality skills. You will need to be hungry and ambitious and keen to push your career forward in a vibrant, fast moving in-house legal department.

In-house experience would be desirable, but the client would consider a private practice lawyer looking to move in-house who could point to good business and commercial skills.

Our client envisages that candidates with a minimum of 4 years PQE plus will have the relevant skills / knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.
