Construction Law Jobs

Construction is a legal specialism which is typically confined to the commercial law firms similar to areas such as Banking and Projects (also referred to as Infrastructure Projects and Energy or PFI/PPP) and can often be perceived as a niche area. However, the opportunities for construction solicitors are plentiful both within In-House as well as within Private Practice.

The Construction legal market is in itself quite diverse with some firms having entirely separate non-contentious and contentious divisions whereas other departments are entirely mixed with solicitors handling a mixed case load.

A career in construction can offer the opportunity to be involved with large scale development, regeneration and energy sector projects as well as disputes. These can be both complex and cross-border. There are also plenty of opportunities to gain exposure to clients from a variety of sectors and backgrounds including major public sector bodies and FTSE 100 companies. The very nature of the work often lends itself to solicitors working closely with other departments within the firm for example Projects, Commercial Litigation and Commercial Property.

In summary, a career in construction offers an array of opportunities both non-contentious and contentious, within private practice and in-house. Further with the upturn in the economy generally and the property market we have seen the demand for solicitors who specialise within this area to continue to grow. Accordingly, if you would like to speak to one of our consultants then call us today to have a discussion in confidence with one of our specialist legal recruitment consultants.
