The Role:

This top-ranking and award-winning firm are seeking a Construction Associate 2-5 PQE to join their London office.

This is a unique, exciting chance to join a leading UK Law firm where a lot of the work is international.

  • The team is seeking an Associate in Non-Contentious Construction. The ideal individual would have previous experience of working at a large firm with an established construction team.

  • For this role, you should have gained the majority of your prior experience in non-contentious construction law (standard form construction contracts and some experience of commercial and/or housing development work).

  • Ideally, you'll have a solid working knowledge of the various standard form contracts, including JCT, NEC and EPC forms, their standard amendments, and market norms.

  • The firm would want to see a willingness to take on more bespoke, complex agreements and/or typical development arrangements with appropriate supervision.

  • (Experience in advisory/ disputes avoidance work is welcomed, but the focus of the role is for a non-contentious candidate and so this is not essential)

There are many reasons why this is a great role, not least that the team is ranked as a top tier practice in both The Legal 500 and Chambers UK.

Person specification:

  • You will be a Construction Associate 2-5 PQE
  • You will be focused on non-contentious construction work in this role.
  • Salary is competitive and negotiable depending on your level of experience (you will also receive an industry-leading benefits package)
