My client is a top ranked Legal 500 firm. Many of the firm's Partners and Associates are ex-City practitioners, and they attract a high quality of work across all their practice areas. If you are looking for a move out of London without a reduction in the quality of work on offer then this could be ideal for you.
We are recruiting for a contentious Construction Associate with 2-4 years' experience to join the busy team in North Kent. Consisting of 6 construction lawyers (split evenly between contentious and non-contentious practitioners), the construction team acts for an interesting mix of large property portfolio-holders, institutional investors, shopping centres and local authorities with substantial pipelines of repeat work.
You will handle construction disputes across insolvency and payment disputes, warranty claims, and disputes under all forms of building contracts. The non-contentious team also regularly deals with large one-off construction projects including new build hotels, leisure centres, office developments and school refurbishment projects, and you will handle any associated litigation arising out of disputes relating to these projects. This is a great opportunity to come and join a successful and growing team that is involved in impressive and varied work.
You will be a Construction Solicitor with over 2 years' PQE, most of which should be in contentious work. Along with your legal knowledge, you should have excellent client facing skills and the desire to grow your practice through active business development.
The role is commutable from Sevenoaks, Crawley, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone with excellent train links to London. The firm offer a highly competitive salary and benefits package and excellent opportunities for progression.
