Non-Contentious Construction
Associate/ Senior Associate
London

This ranked, international law firm, founded over 100 years ago, has 170+ partners worldwide across. They are one of the few international law firms focused on successful individuals and private wealth, working closely with founders, investors and family offices. They advise governments, charities, global brands and start-ups of all shapes and sizes.

The firm's highly regarded, busy, and very-profitable Real Estate team act for landowners, property developers, international investors, charities, leisure and hospitality operators and sports institutions, art galleries and cultural institutions, and international banks. The London team consists of 7 partners, 1 of counsel, and 23 fee earners with specialisms in commercial, residential, rural, real estate disputes and construction practices.

The construction practice has a non-contentious focus, principally advising developers, owners, charities and other not-for-profit organisations, high net worth individuals, hotel groups, institutional investors and major international retailers. They also advise industry professionals, such as architects and engineers, contractors and specialist subcontractors. In addition to providing procurement advice and project documentation, they work closely with the wider real estate department and the corporate and finance teams on transactional matters. They also provide a number of their clients with project support services, including pre-dispute, ADR and settlement advice.

As part of the role, you will be involved in a diverse mix of development work, working independently and also together with the firm's commercial, residential and landed estates teams. Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate a technical understanding and genuine enthusiasm for all aspects of construction law, particularly:

  • Drafting bespoke contracts, as well as amendments to industry standard forms.
  • A good working knowledge of the construction aspects of facility agreements and agreements for lease.
  • Familiarity with public procurement and tendering procedures.
  • A sound commercial understanding of the industry and current trends in procurement.

The ideal candidate will have between 4-6 years' experience in non-contentious construction matters gained from a highly regarded City or international practice in London. You will also have excellent academics.

Please apply as directed or confidentially contact Aidan McAvinue at Search Legal for more information. Alternatively, if this role is not for you, I am working a variety of other Construction law opportunities with ranked teams in the City London so would be interested to talk to any Construction lawyer.
