Description

Our client is an award winning design and build construction company based in Greater Manchester. The company has worked with a range of leading companies in the region and beyond, offering unique and innovative solutions to its clients and partners.

To support the business and to help protect the company as it continue to grow, our client seeks to recruit a dedicated In-house Legal Counsel to support the commercial and sales teams on bids/tenders and contractual matters. This will involve: advising key stakeholders on legal risk, reviewing tender documents, negotiating agreements, providing commercial advice, putting in place processes, procedures and documentation, undertaking staff training, and assisting on other ad hoc legal matters.

Familiarity with the JCT suite of contracts, sub-contracts, collateral warranties etc. is required, as is experience of advising on, drafting and negotiating complex commercial construction agreements. The In-house Legal Counsel could come from a construction, projects or general commercial background.

The company owner is looking for individuals who are confident picking up the legal and contractual matters related to the company and its business operations. The person should be confident and capable of working autonomously as the sole in-house lawyer.

This In-house Legal Counsel role is ideal for a junior-mid level but ambitious lawyer looking to work in-house. Individuals with circa 2-5 years' relevant experience are most suitable. You could be a junior solicitor, legal executive or experienced paralegal / contract manager.
