Job Details


Our client is a well-respected law firm with ambition, and a full service offering to commercial clients from a UK-wide office network. They have an established Construction Law offering which includes strong expertise acting for private and public sector clients and also for companies active in the Health sectors. With increased client demand they are now seeing an additional lawyer to be based in Newcastle.

The successful candidate will undertake a broad range of contentious and non-contentious work from different sectors and clients including employers, contractors, sub-contractors and lenders. This will include drafting, negotiating and advising upon building contracts, professional appointments, sub-contracts and associated bonds and warranties. The successful candidate will also provide support to our wider Real Estate team.

A suitable candidate will have a mixed background in either transactional construction or construction litigation and you'll be comfortable running cases with support of a knowledgeable partner. This is a rare opportunity in an area of work where it is unusual to get this sort of exposure. The firm is happy to recruit someone from the local market (though as ever there are not that many teams in this niche), and candidates from further afield who will relocate to this region or have links to the North East, as it's a particularly attractive area of the UK will also be considered including those from London.

Part-time working will also be considered for this role.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.


Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
