Please do get in touch if you're unsure if you have the transferable skills.

This is one of the biggest Projects teams in the North and is top ranked across all directories. They're a good bunch of friendly sociable lawyers who often have team meetings at a partner's house accompanied by a glass of wine.

You will be working on a number of big ticket transactions across a variety of sectors, predominantly energy, transport and infrastructure. However you will also have the opportunity to lead on smaller projects which overall gives you a broad range of experience. You will manage your own caseload involving significant interface with clients and also work as part of a wider on significant transactions and cases.

Applications are encouraged from solicitors from NQ up to about 5 years PQE. In addition, you should be a team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical approach to your workload.
