Job Details

Our client, a highly regarded law firm within the construction sector, are looking for a second in command for their non contentious team in Leeds.

This role offers great opportunity for someone looking for a clear, and open route to career development.

Supporting the Head of Department, they are keen to recruit someone who has experience of dealing with clients directly, running matters themselves and also ideally either has experience in or an interest in supporting more junior lawyers.

This firm offers access to quality work from an array of backgrounds including contractors and sub-contractors, developers, funders, and consultants.

Whilst the work is hugely varied key areas of focus include:

  • Contract review
  • Reviewing, drafting, and advising on the suite of contracts and documents including consultant appointments, building contracts etc
  • Due diligence reporting

With such a diverse range of clients they have both repeat users and one-off clients, which means that they need someone adaptable in their approach to clients and able to advise less knowledgeable clients who may be undertaking one off developments, as well as those for whom the construction sector is their working life.

With a huge amount of recommended work and repeat business the firm tend to lead their marketing with an ongoing programme of seminars, webinars etc rather than attending random events. They'd love you to get involved in the seminars, however if you were keen to do more pro-active business development, they are happy to give you support you in this, whether that be from the partners or their marketing team.

This firm offer something a little different but with a massively competitive package which is inline with the best in Leeds, flexible and hybrid working and a fabulous working environment.
