Job description


Solicitor (1106)

The Role

We are looking for two bright, construction and engineering lawyers with good commercial instincts who share our commitment to first-class client service, technical excellence and enjoying what we do.  The most important thing to us is recruiting the right people, so we are not setting any post-qualification experience criteria.

We offer great opportunities for career progression and a modern, forward-thinking culture. The right person could be part of our succession planning.

We are looking for non-contentious and contentious lawyers; if you can do both, all the better.

The successful candidates will be based in our Gatwick office and will be part of our national construction and engineering team, working on a wide variety of projects and disputes. You will have the opportunity to work on a varied and interesting caseload, working on both contentious and non-contentious construction cases. As part of this growing team, you will work alongside an experienced and Band 1 Chambers-ranked Partner.

The team works across the whole spectrum of construction and engineering disputes as well as advising on procurement law. Recent highlights for the team include:

  • Working for a developer on a forward-funded mixed use development  
  • Working on a large residential scheme in London’s Docklands with some mixed use
  • Acting in an ICC arbitration in connection with an infrastructure project
  • Acting for the Employer in a £millions adjudication in the health sector
  • Advising several further education institutions on their capital projects
  • Advising a top tier sports team on their development scheme
  • Advising a well-known M&E contractor on a range of projects and disputes

We’d like you to proactively get involved with business development opportunities.  You’ll be an exceptional team player with the ability to work collaboratively to deliver the best outcomes for our clients and to develop other team members.

The Benefits

In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.
