Description

In September of this year the firm made four key new hires, cementing its position as one of the largest construction teams in the North West. The incoming team have specific experience of large infrastructure projects across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The existing team has particular expertise in the transport, infrastructure, industrial, developer led residential schemes, oil and gas, energy and renewable sectors, and is also seeing increasing instructions from the sport and leisure industry.

The post involves principally non-contentious work with some contentious work for employers and contractors, construction professionals and funders. Ideally the candidate will have at least 3 years PQE within the construction sector.

The role will include the following responsibilities:

- Reviewing and reporting on all forms of construction, engineering, oil & gas and infrastructure contracts.
- Drafting and negotiating building contracts.
- Preparing professional appointments and warranties and manage their completion.
- Preparing security documentation.
- Assist in dispute resolution through litigation, adjudication, mediation; and
- Preparation of documents in proceedings, including claims, witness statements and other documents
