An outstanding opportunity has arisen at a renowned UK property developer company for a tenacious, driven, UK qualified solicitor to act as their first hire as a general counsel in Essex.
 
The ideal candidate will be technically and commercially astute, capable of advising on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious construction and property development matters. Experience of working in-house for a house builder would be advantageous but is not a pre-requisite. However, excellent interpersonal, problem solving, technical and analytical skills are essential.
 
Duties in this role will include:
  • Providing commercial advice to the business and their subcontractors
  • Reviewing and negotiating contracts/terms of business/letter of agreements
  • Managing contentious matters including dispute resolution via mediation/adjudication/arbitration/litigation
  • Reviewing insurance policies
  • Maintaining current knowledge of legal developments and legislation
  • Ensuring compliance with established policies, legal requirements, rules, regulations and laws
  • Providing solutions for legal problems and potential risks
  • Maintaining strong internal and external relationships with consultants/subcontractors.
In return, you will be offered exciting and challenging project work, autonomy and professional development at a market leading and award winning public company.
