A book of business is always difficult to evidence in some contentious areas and thankfully the partners in this disputes practice take a more long term view on their lateral hires; with a strong emphasis on cultural fit, market profile and network rather than just the bottom line that might follow. There is a distinct gap here for a mainstream, contentious construction partner with a broad skill set who is familiar with all types of clients from contractors to developers (and occasionally insurers). The firm is looking for an existing partner who has, or is looking for, management and leadership experience and the chance to work with an enthusiastic and capable team of juniors. Work is largely domestic and covers disputes, mediation, adjudication although with some international arbitration. And the firm's core sectors, such as Energy and Real Estate play well into the expertise of this department. You will be joining a busy and well-resourced team with a good reputation for both contentious and non-contentious construction work in the UK. The firm has a compensation structure that fosters collegiately, cross selling and teamwork. And there are exciting developments across the broader firm that will only enhance the potential and attractiveness of this opportunity.
