Recommended in the Legal 500 across numerous disciplines and ranked highly in Chambers, this is an ideal environment for a dedicated solicitor to forge ahead in their career with a quality UK law firm.

The Firm

The firm has a long history of innovation. This is something that has always been reflected throughout their 200 years of business and continues to burn brightly into the future.

They will not compromise on providing the highest quality of advice, service, commitment and value for money and this is shown by the length of many of their client relationships.

They have a particular reputation for corporate and commercial, private wealth, real estate, dispute resolution, IP and employment work. Within this, they have built a strong track record in the financial services, media, arts and leisure industries.

They take every step they can to modernise the practice and now find themselves working on the most up-to-date sectors, including Fintech, Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and emerging technologies.

This is all backed up by both the firm and a large number of its individual lawyers being mentioned in the Legal 500 and Chambers lists.

The business has been swift to adapt to the "new normal" and offers an attractive range of flexible and hybrid working options to its lawyers.

The Role

This Top 200 law firm is seeking to recruit a Construction Partner to join its team based in the City of London.

In this role you will be joining at tight-knit and professional team based in London's vibrant West End. The team assists clients on both contentious and non-contentious construction matters, so candidates with experience of either (or both) are encouraged to apply - though with a preference to contentious matters.

The position offers an exciting opportunity to make a real impact on the department. You will play a central role in the team's business development initiatives, paving the way for continued growth and further developmental opportunities.

As a partner, you will also provide the necessary level of supervision to more junior colleagues.
There is an impressive level of training offered by the firm and solid exposure to a number of top networking events.

The work will encompass a number of matters, from litigation on construction disputes, contractor and sub-contractor disputes and work with funders. The team also assists on issues relating to negligence on the behalf of architects and surveyors. Experience in construction documentation, arbitration and security for lenders is also desired.

Given the firm's location you will benefit from an excellent environment and superb public transport links. The firm also operates a modern approach to hybrid and flexible working.

Given the strong position of the team, this is the perfect role for a senior solicitor seeking to take the next step in their career.
