Construction Litigation Solicitor

Fantastic top tier global firm is growing its small construction, engineering and infrastructure disputes team in Leeds, and is looking for a further solicitor to join the team.

What's on offer & what differentiates it from its competitors?

- Strong integrated team across the North that works collaboratively to achieve aims
- Contentious construction is a key investment priority for the firm
- Huge internal market and major investment & support for the team
- Main focus on major engineering projects primarily across energy (all areas) and transport / infrastructure as opposed to commercial construction projects
- Practice is a broad mix of contractor and employer clients
- Exceptional client contact from day one
- Top of the market salaries and benefits structure
- A transparent generous bonus scheme based on hours worked, not billed & paid, worth up to 40% of salary
- Agile working as standard, part time and flexible hours no issue
- Senior Associate promotions from 4PQE

More on the work

- Disputes arising out of projects run out of Leeds & Manchester offices, not a support function for London
- National & international disputes (Europe and Asia predominantly)
- Act for national governments, private operators, main contractors, consultants, football clubs and major companies
- Disputes arising out of infrastructure, transport, utilities, harbour, energy (oil / gas, nuclear & renewable), PFI/PPP and chemicals projects

Who are they looking for?

- A qualified solicitor with strong intellect evidenced by a solid academic record
- Ideally experience in contentious construction matters
- Very strong consideration also given to lawyers with a background in professional indemnity work, or non-contentious construction lawyers looking to move across into disputes
- Non-practising barristers with relevant experience also very welcome to apply
- From newly qualified up to around 6PQE
- For those at the higher end of the range, bear in mind that Senior Associate promotions start at 4PQE so if you can demonstrate the requisite skills, this may be a great opportunity to move up from your current role.
