This includes major hospital and housing developments. The team also advises on energy infrastructure projects. 
The NQ construction role is for a non-contentious construction lawyer (NQ to 3 years PQE) that will be required to undertake a wide range of high quality and complex work for both public sector and independent sector clients including health and energy sector clients.
