Managing this Role


This is a fantastic opportunity for a 2-5 PQE Construction Associate to join this prestigious, highly ranked law firm across the Legal 500 and Chambers alike. This Top-100 practice offers impressive benefits packages alongside tailored training and development opportunities. Few firms are prepared to invest in their solicitors in the way in which this award winning-practice does.

The Firm

Despite being ranked in the Top 100, they have a culture that you would associate with a smaller practice. The firm has a stand-out staff retention rate, in part, this is due to the high level of training, development, and career progression on offer. Many of the firm's Partners are home-grown, it is through their commitment to development that they have gone from strength to strength over the years.

You will find a vibrant leadership team, the firm very much has an open-door culture where it is commonplace to find partners sat next to trainees and NQs. We typically find that lawyers who work at this practice have way more in the way of experience compared to a similar level of PQE at other firms.

The firm has an unusually broad-based practice spanning commercial and private clients, civil and criminal, contentious, and advisory work.

You will find that the firm often acts on the other side of some of London's largest and most well-respected law firms. The work that the firm undertakes is often very complex and cross-jurisdictional in nature.
