Are you a Construction Solicitor considering the next phase of your career? If so read on....
Our client, a well-placed commercial practice based in Leeds City Centre, are looking for a Construction Lawyer to work within a highly experienced team base across the North of England. They have a strong presence within the sector and undertake both private and public sector work and their reach isn't limited to this region but is both national and international. Many of their clients are employers but they also have a few sizeable contractor clients.The team advises on all aspects for Construction work and whilst many of their lawyers undertake a combined contentious and non-contentious workload, they are happy to speak to people who focus on either.The firm are very open in terms of PQE and whilst specific construction law experience would be ideal, particularly if you are a more senior lawyer, they are also happy to consider lawyers with up to 2 years pqe who have an interest in construction law but haven't had the opportunity to practice in this area of law as yet, they would however need strong commercial property or commercial litigation experience and need to be convinced of a real interest in this area of work.Within this growing team you would have plenty of opportunity for client contact, but you would also get strong support in building both your technical and soft skills.
Whilst this role is based in Leeds given that when there is a more substantial return to the office there will continue to be a lot of homeworking many Lawyers are now considering opportunities that can necessitate a slightly longer commute on their office days, so if Leeds is a stretch but you are still interested please do get in touch.
