Job description

A leading UK law firm is seeking a contentious construction associate at the 1-6 PQE level join their well-established and highly regarded construction team within the City. The focus of the role with be on contentious matters therefore any candidate wishing to be considered must be prepared to specialise on the contentious side going forward in their career, although candidates with a mixed practice of both contentious and non-contentious matters up to this point will be considered.

This is the ideal time to join this growing department. The team boasts a number of senior Chambers' ranked individuals within the area of construction and the role will involve working closely with them on an array of matters. The practice predominantly focuses on UK and domestic work, although there may, on occasion, be the opportunity to focus on matters that are international as well. The team works closely with their stellar Real Estate Practice from which it also receives a lot of instructions as a result of genuine symbiosis between the two teams. The team has extensive experience in complex and high value development schemes which include but are not limited to sports, residential and mixed use developments, student accommodation, hotels, infrastructure (including energy centres and sub-stations) and site remediation matters.
The firm boats a strong impressive roster of clients including developers, funds and other institutional investors, occupiers and high net worth individuals and the new joiner can expect a large amount of client contact early on within the role.

The firm offers the opportunity to undertake high quality contentious construction work in a welcoming and genuinely supportive environment. This firm in particular fosters a healthy work/life balance in comparison with other City firms and a number of practitioners at larger international firms have joined the firm in order to obtain such a balance whilst not sacrificing the quality of work they are exposed to.
