Commercial & Projects Solicitor

This top tier international firm has a fearsome reputation in the area of projects and infrastructure work and is top ranked in the Legal 500. With a client list to die for, the team acts on behalf of major household name clients across a broad range of industry sectors, including transport, education, health, infrastructure, energy (traditional & emerging) and urban regeneration, offering a fantastic variety of work.

The team is recognised nationally by independent reviewers as one of the leading advisory teams in this area, acting on behalf of a wide public sector client base, Public Private Partnerships, major project sponsors and Private Finance Initiative funding institutions.

It's not all big ticket major projects though - they also handle a really interesting range of smaller matters, providing the perfect arena for junior lawyers to cut their teeth and build up technical skills in a supportive environment, whilst also taking on a role with the bigger projects.

You can gain a wide ranging experience or take up the opportunity to specialise in one main area, it's up to you. In essence the team advises on commercial contracts relating to energy, infrastructure, transport and many types of public/private sector transactions, which is a great grounding for junior lawyers and offers a fantastic range of work for more experienced lawyers.

They have recently recruited but are very busy and are now looking to recruit a further senior associate to join the team in Leeds. The ideal candidate will have at least 4 years' experience of working either in major projects, or in commercial, construction, real estate, banking or corporate with a recognised national or regional commercial practice, or solid in-house legal team, and will be keen to develop his or her experience working alongside a supportive team of experts who deliver services to an enviable client base. More experienced lawyers may well be of interest if you have specific projects experience.

You will have a strong academic profile, with a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent, demonstrable commercial acumen and an ability to communicate a thorough knowledge of the practice area/s you have experience in, and a genuine interest in infrastructure, energy & transport.
