Commercial Litigation Solicitor

This very well-regarded 3 partner high-ranking specialist construction firm is looking for a newly qualified commercial litigation solicitor to join the team. The firm is proud to have 2 of the key leading individuals in the region for this area of work.

The award-winning firm was set up by big firm ex national construction heads and acts on behalf of an impressive roster of major contractors, plcs and big national household name companies, with a very established national reputation for providing high quality legal services to the construction and engineering sector.

The team deals with the full range of contentious and non-contentious construction matters. On the dispute resolution side, which forms the majority of their work, they represents claimant and defendant clients in the full range of processes and proceedings, including adjudication, mediation, arbitration, litigation, conciliation, early neutral evaluation, expert determination and public procurement disputes.

Many of the disputes they handle are high value and complex and their highly regarded specialists are well placed to provide the highest quality of advice in any given situation.

They are now looking to hire a junior solicitor to join the team and work on contentious matters. The ideal candidate will have a strong academic profile and a really good grounding in high quality commercial litigation or contentious construction work, and have a genuine interest in working in this sector. This is a very client-facing role, working with senior level clients, so you will also be confident, professional and articulate. They are also happy to consider bright lawyers with very strong academics from other disciplines who can demonstrate a genuine interest in construction law.

In return you can expect the highest quality of work and an excellent market rate salary package commensurate with top tier firms, together with the work-life balance that we have come to expect from the mid tiers and boutique firms.
