Construction Solicitor

Leeds, UK


JOB TYPE: Permanent, FullTime

SALARY: £48000 - £65000 per annum

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a skilled Construction Solicitor to join a highly regarded firm in Leeds City Centre. Our client is well-established and extremely successful practise who have an outstanding reputation at a national level despite being a single site firm.

The firm has a large property practice and they act for a lot of commercial and residential developers which can be a great source of work. They have work coming from a variety of sectors such as NHS trusts right through to national Energy and Utility companies. You will have the opportunity to develop in your technical abilities as you will often be handling high quality and complex cases carrying out contract drafting and negotiations, procurement challenges and defect claims. There will be both a mixture of contentious and non-contentious work but primarily you will be the first point of contact for the non-contentious work giving you an opportunity to develop your own niche area of expertise.

The role would suit a Construction Solicitor who has the confidence to take on responsibility for some of their own matters; there is plenty of direct client contact and the opportunity to get involved in business development and marketing. That said, there is also a good level of support from highly skilled Partners if needed.

Ideally they are looking for someone with a minimum of 4 year's experience under their belt but they are however happy to look outside of this for someone with the right level of knowledge/experience to undertake the role.

It would really suit someone who has perhaps found that they have a glass ceiling where they are and feel that they would benefit from a little more autonomy at a very collegiate and well known firm where there is a great working environment.
