Our client, a major national Top 50 law firm is seeking an experienced construction litigation and PFI solicitor for at least 1 year, possibly longer to work on a long-term project. The firm is open to individuals seeking to work 4 or 5 days a week
The dispute arises under a PFI contract relating to a large waste to energy project. The contract has been terminated as a result of the contractor's failure to pass the acceptance tests by the longstop date. The parties are now dealing with issues relating, in a broad sense, to compensation on termination. The difference between the parties may be in the hundreds of millions of pounds.
The issues include the design and construction of the facility itself, and its ability to meet the output specifications of the contract, along with similar issues arising at various waste transfer stations, and complex questions of contractual interpretation.
The successful construction litigation and PFI solicitor will ideally have experience of the above, along with:
o Managing a team of junior lawyers (the firm has 3 solicitors working on the project full time, plus a trainee)
o Working collaboratively with other two partners
o Working with a large counsel and expert team
o Working with clients from the public sector
The role will be on a remote basis, although the individual will need to attend the Derby office 2 days a week every 2 weeks (travel will be reimbursed).
To apply for this outstanding construction litigation and PFI solicitor role, please send your CV ASAP or contact Sandra Pavlou for a confidential discussion.
