Seize this opportunity to gain exposure to top quality international contentious construction & engineering work, without having to toil excessively long hours at a firm with strenuous targets.

This is one of the few firms that combines an appealing office culture in terms of work-life balance (sensible expectations and a positive reputation for associate well-being) with such high grade work.

Many other preeminent construction & engineering disputes practices are part of a corporate or finance firm where everyone works similarly long hours, whereas this particular international City outfit is better known for dispute resolution of all descriptions, and is more commonly recognised for its global reputation in infrastructure, transportation and natural resources.

The firm has always had a top-rated offering in shipping, commodities and aviation, amongst other things.  Its client base is regularly in need of construction & engineering related legal advice, often in connection with significant matters overseas.  Over the past half a dozen years, the firm has invested heavily in its construction practice, and has established a busy team that is as good as any in the City, and that is continually involved in stimulating and big-ticket work.

For an ambitious associate at a more domestic practice, who wishes to make the step up to a more global construction litigation & arbitration team, this is the ideal move.  You will gain hands-on experience of disputes relating to wind farms, oil & gas projects, rail and road infrastructure developments, including a large amount of international construction arbitration.

You will advise large contractor clients, significant suppliers to the industry and purchasers.  Recent work has involved governments, large industrial manufacturers, prominent oil companies, high profile engineering firms, and major shipping businesses.

To find out more about this opportunity, please get in touch without delay.
