As well as working on projects, the team also advise on construction disputes such as delays, defects or contract variations.

This role will largely focus on non-contentious construction contracts work, including JCT and NEC contracts, any associated procurement contracts, pre-construction service agreements and generally providing commercial advice throughout to resolve issues and minimise risk. You may also be asked to provide assistance on commercial disputes work as needed.

The team are looking for additional support from a qualified solicitor with at least three years of post-qualification experience, in order to provide additional resource during a busy period.
