Job Details

Construction Law Solicitor , Southampton

This is an opportunity to join a very high profile firm with the chance to work alongside noted partners available here.

The firm have a national presence and handle both contentious and non-contentious work.

The firm operate in some niche sectors - from residential and retail to infrastructure and renewable energy.

Ideally you will have trained and gained experience in a comparable chambers rated Top 200 UK Law firm and possess excellent academics having been mentored by partners of note with a national profile.

While the quality and complexity of work available is high, because you will be based in a relatively small team, you'll get plenty of access to, and work closely with, the London partners and other lawyers within the team and beyond, giving you a more rounded perspective.

One thing which sets the firm apart from others is their track record of investing in their staff and you can expect a lot of one to one development and encouragement and you'll be offered a good amount of client contact and early responsibility which will allow you to hone your skills.

There will be the chance to participate in gentle business development and networking activities which will allow you to build your profile and forge your own reputation.

This is a busy role, with deadlines to manage and competing priorities, so you will be required to work quickly, accurately and efficiently and remain calm under pressure. You will be expected to think ahead to meet the needs of the other fee earners and our clients.

The work requires passion and self-motivation and the ability to work to demanding deadlines, so you'll need to demonstrate at interview stage that you have initiative, drive and great organisational skills.
