Fantastic Contentious Construction Senior Associate role with this leading international firm in Bristol

Your new firm
Our client is a highly respected Top 50 international law firm that boasts an established and growing Bristol based Construction team and ambitious plans for the months ahead. With an excellent reputation, our client currently has a job opening for a talented Contentious Construction Senior Associate to join their tight knit and collegiate team.

Your new role
This exciting role will bring the opportunity to handle a broad and varied caseload of contentious construction work for a portfolio of leading clients with a focus on working with leading contractors. You will be given client and matter responsibility from the outset, advising on the full remit of contentious advice, while supervising and supporting junior lawyers in the team.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be an experienced Contentious Construction lawyer used to running your own caseload of high value and complex litigation claims and developing strong client relationships. An expert in your field, you will be ambitious who is keen to join like-minded lawyers operating at the top of their game. You will be used to working for demanding clients looking for timely, commercial advice, and have a proven track record of winning work.

While the caseload will be exclusively contentious, experience in a mixed contentious and non-contentious construction role would equally be of interest.

You will have an excellent work ethic, clear attention to detail, and the ability to work to tight deadlines.

What you'll get in return
This is a great Contentious Construction job in the current market with a leading international firm that will suit a versatile Contentious Construction lawyer looking for their next challenge. As well as excellent on-going training and investment, you will be exposed to working on high value construction claims for an enviable client base with opportunities to progress in your own career.

With an excellent salary and benefits package on offer, this is a standout opportunity in the market.

What you need to do now
If you are interested in applying for this position or would like some further details, please contact Hays Legal in complete confidence.

We would expect a lawyer with the given PQE to have gained the level of experience required, but this does not preclude applications from those with more or less PQE.
