Our client is a leading national law firm who are seeking an NQ-1 PQE Construction Litigation Solicitor to join their team in Manchester.
The national team act for developers, occupiers, construction professionals, funders, contractors and specialists on all aspects of legal construction matters. The team successfully manage and resolve risks associated with large construction projects and have worked on some of the UK’s most complex projects over the years, including town centre redevelopments, logistics parks, infrastructure projects, commercial/residential schemes, urban regeneration, process plants and portfolio acquisition/disposal projects. Within the contentious team you will be advising on a variety of construction disputes, including adjudication, arbitration, mediation and court proceedings, as well as advising on claims over time, money and defective design/work.
Although you will be based in Manchester you will be part of a national construction and engineering team. You will gain access to market leading, national construction litigation work and you will be supported in your development by your colleagues, with a clear career path to follow. You may also have the opportunity to assist your transactional colleagues occasionally, so a willingness to support with non-transactional work as required would also be advantageous.
Ideally you will have gained construction litigation experience within your training contract or post-qualification, however the firm are also open to receiving applications from candidates with any construction law experience, as long as you are keen to specialise into contentious matters.
