Are you a Construction Lawyer ready to progress your career with a top-tier legal team in Manchester or Leeds? Our client, a prestigious Top 50 firm, is seeking a dynamic individual to join their robust national team, specialising in both contentious and non-contentious construction.

Our client boasts a stellar reputation for delivering exceptional legal services across a broad spectrum of sectors. As a Construction Lawyer within this firm, you will be part of a team renowned for its expertise in supporting developers, healthcare providers, contractors, and educational institutions, among others.

In this role, you will navigate a diverse array of construction law aspects, from dispute resolution to contract procurement. Your day-to-day will involve advising on claims related to extensions of time, loss and expense, payment applications, and final account disputes. Moreover, you will bring your experience in alternative dispute resolution and mediation to the table. On the non-contentious side, your knowledge in building contracts, professional appointments, and construction due diligence will be invaluable. This position is not just a job but a chance to challenge yourself with some of the most complex cases in construction law.

The firm values its staff, offering a generous package that includes 25 days of holiday, flexible working hours, comprehensive healthcare cover, and a pension plan with significant employer contributions. Additional perks include life insurance, travel loan schemes, employee care support, discounted gym memberships, dental plans, and a cycle to work scheme.

You are an ambitious lawyer with proven experience in construction law, eager to expand your horizons within a large national team. 2 - 6 year PQE has been agreed as appropriate for the role, but senior lawyers seeking greater responsibility are also encouraged to apply. Your skill set encompasses a thorough understanding of contentious and non-contentious construction matters, and you are adept at providing top-tier legal advice and client service.
