|Job title:||Contentious Construction Associate (Insurance Focus) - 2-6 PQE|
|Job consultant:||Michael Madigan|
|Job location:||London, England|
A Chambers' ranked construction practice within London seeks an associate at the 2-6pqe level to join their well-regarded construction team in a mixed construction and insurance disputes focused role. The nature of the role is that of a construction associate within the insurance sphere, focusing on claims that have been made against construction professionals including but not limited to engineers, surveyors and architects for example. The ideal candidate will have experience of working on matters under joint retainers for construction professional insureds and also their professional indemnity insurers. Given the specific nature of this role, candidates will need to possess a strong understanding of the key elements of not only contentious construction law, but also insurance law and insurance policy as well.
The work will involve a genuine mixture of construction and insurance matters, such as advising on insurance policy coverage issues, preparing reports for insurer clients and preparing for court cases and arbitration hearings. The new joiner will have to be comfortable and ideally have experience managing the relations of insurers/insureds, with an awareness of possible conflicts under single and joint retainers. The firm in question expect their solicitors to possess strong academics, a genuine commercial awareness and a genuine passion and interest in work within the insurance and construction disputes sphere. The firm in question will offer competitive remuneration and a forgiving work/life balance in comparison with a number of other city practices.
