JOB TITLE: Legal Counsel - Construction
PQE: 2+ years

Our client is one of the leading global players in their market, has a superb opportunity available for a Construction Solicitor to join their in-house team. The successful individual will be a key hire into the team during an exciting period of growth and expansion. Exciting times are ahead for this thriving business, with a substantial pipeline of work secured for the coming months.
As an experienced Construction Solicitor, you will be handling a mixed caseload of contentious and non-contentious construction matters, taking a ‘hands on’ approach to handling legal issues on behalf of the organisation. Duties will range from drafting and amending bespoke commercial contracts, to participating in tendering and projects. The contentious elements of this role will include advising on options in respect of contractual disputes and striving to reach appropriate resolutions.
This role is initially required to cover maternity leave for a period of 12months, however due to the anticipated growth within the business over the next year, it is likely that this role could become permanent for the right individual.

As well as being a UK qualified Lawyer, the right person must have 4 years upwards of experience with substantial focus on Construction law. This experience may have been gained within private practice or as part of an in-house legal team, but will include both contentious and non-contentious construction work. With an outstanding record of providing pragmatic and timely legal advice, you will bring well-honed commercial acumen to the role. You will be highly analytical, with exceptional drafting abilities and will also be a talented negotiator. In addition to your professional skills, you will possess the right personal qualities to work well within this driven, committed and tenacious team.
