From our offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Elgin, Thurso and Lerwick, our highly experienced team deals with a broad range of commercial and other civil disputes for clients in the private and public sectors, including high value and complex litigated cases in the Court of Session and Sheriff Court. We regularly represents clients in appeals to the Supreme Court. We also have a significant cross-Border litigation practice, led by our English-qualified partner.
We are looking for a solicitor to join our Edinburgh team at Senior Solicitor level.
The role will be varied and challenging and will involve advising a range of public and private sector clients primarily within the construction and engineering sector. You will be involved in a wide variety of contentious claims and disputes across a range of dispute resolution processes, including mediation, adjudication, litigation and arbitration.
We are seeking candidates with at least two years’ PQE experience of working in a construction disputes role and who have a desire to pursue a career which builds upon that experience.
