Our client is a strong international law firm, seeking a non-contentious construction lawyer with upwards of 5 years’ PQE for a contract of up to 6 months. The successful contractor will play a big part in the team’s ambitious growth plans. Ideally, candidates will be available immediately or at short notice, due to the imminent start date of the contract.
The successful candidate will be involved in advising on a full range of matters that can arise in a development project – covering design, tendering and bidding, financing, advice on live projects and after completion. They can also expect to advise high-profile, blue-chip clients including contractors, developers and consultants on projects involving commercial development, residential projects and hotel and leisure schemes. The team acts for borrowers and lenders also, regarding the construction aspects of real estate finance transactions. Whilst the team primarily acts on UK based projects, there is scope to advise on international projects also. The successful contractor will join this close-knit team, and can expect to work closely with leading Partners in the field.
The firm operates on a hybrid working basis, with 2-3 days a week in the London office, with the remainder at home.
Successful candidates are likely to be England & Wales qualified lawyers, or be qualified in another commonwealth jurisdiction (such as New Zealand or Australia, for example). Successful candidates must also possess upwards of 5 years’ PQE in handling notable non-contentious construction matters from leading international, city or top tier regional firms.
