Job Details

Join a Top 20 law firm that is at the forefront of the changing legal landscape, investing heavily in technology and AI that have streamlined processes and revolutionised the way that they deliver legal services. The firm has ambitious overseas expansion plans, and they already have an established presence across Asia, the Middle East and the US. You will be exposed to large-scale projects working alongside some of the most technically strong lawyers in the UK.

The Firm:

You will join a global, Top 20 law firm that is continually evolving and growing. The firm has a strong focus on developed and emerging markets and boasts an impressive track record in many sectors, including transport, energy, and insurance.

The firm has a uniquely innovative and forward-thinking approach, being one of the first in the UK to adopt AI and technology throughout the firm. This has streamlined processes and ensures that their lawyers perform at the highest level. This has had a positive impact on client service, which has resulted in revenue growth of 15% year on year. This growth makes them one of the fastest-growing law firms in the world, and they have no plans to slow down.

Another key area of investment for the firm has been in its people. They are well-known throughout the industry to empower, nurture, and develop legal talent, demonstrated by the increasing number of homegrown Partners.

This firm offers all the benefits of working for an international law firm: a top tier, multi-jurisdictional client base, interesting first-class work, and an accessible network of specialist, renowned lawyers worldwide. Despite their size, they retain a regional approach, giving them a local feel and an advantage over their competitors.

The Role

The firm is seeking a Construction Partner to join their highly regarded Construction team, based in Manchester City Centre.

Their Construction team has a presence across the globe, and you will find that the work you undertake is international in nature. The client base is extremely diverse and includes government bodies, private developers and contractors. You will be advising on a broad range of large-scale, multi-billion pound projects across retail, energy, and hotel and leisure.

On a strategic level, you will work closely with the other Partners across the Construction department, and across the firm. The firm has genuinely exciting plans to grow its presence further, and the Construction department will play a vital role in this expansion due to its significant size and profitability.

This is an exciting opportunity to become a crucial member of the firm, offering a highly lucrative remuneration package, including a market-leading bonus on your billings, your team's billings, and a percentage on any work that you refer to other departments.


  • You will be a Construction Partner with a minimum of 10 years experience (there is no upper limit in regards to the amount of experience)
  • Experience across all aspects of non-contentious construction matters
  • Exposure to international, large-scale projects
  • Strong track record of winning business

This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, commercially-astute Construction Partner to join an international, Top 20 law firm in their Manchester City Centre office.
