Construction NQ Solicitor

Our client is a large commercial practice based in Cheshire and provides an interesting alternative to practices in Manchester with little in the way of compromise on quality of work.

The real estate team has seen strong growth over the past 2 years which also included the evolution of a construction team across both contentious and non-contentious work.

The scope for growth is fantastic and the construction team has bold plans to roll out bespoke contract documentation and full advisory service to the full range of construction clients. 

In order to facilitate that, the team need an additional dedicated junior lawyer to work alongside the key partner, principally, on non-contentious and transactional construction work.

Given that focus, ideally you will have had some exposure to that kind of contract work whether standard JCT, NEC3 or FIDIC. Whilst there is an open mind to those that may have gained experience within contentious construction, there will have to be a real demonstrable desire to shift focus on transactional work and a genuine exposure to construction work.

The firm embodies the idea of work/life balance and the Construction Partner is well regarded and conveys real enthusiasm both for the technical aspects of their work but also in rolling out new ideas for clients.

If you are an NQ coming up to qualification or have recently qualified and have some grounding in construction work and desire to further your career in this area then please send your CV or contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion.
