Current Vacancies

Full-Time Solicitor – Construction

This is an exciting opportunity for 2- 3 year PQE solicitor to join our growing Construction and Engineering team and become part of a leading, forward thinking and energetic Essex-based law firm.

This is a full-time role working closely with the Construction Partner.  The department acts for a variety of clients ranging from small family run construction companies to larger sized construction contractors and sub-contractors.

The work will primarily focus on construction dispute work, using all forms of dispute resolution (including adjudications, arbitration, mediation, international arbitration and litigation) and drafting advice on every aspect of construction contracts including payments, extensions of time, loss and expense, defects and insurance issues.

The department also undertakes a variety of non-contentious construction work, including reviewing and advising upon standard form contracts, negotiating and drafting standard form contracts for specific projects and reviewing and drafting contractor and sub-contractor terms and conditions.

The successful candidate will also be expected to grow their own case load and to actively involve themselves in marketing initiatives.

We are keen to hear from talented solicitors with strong construction experience whether it be in contentious or non-contentious construction.  For the right candidate, we will also accept lesser PQE, a combination of litigation and construction experience.  A flexible working arrangement will also be considered.
