Newly Qualified Solicitor – Construction

The team

A&L Goodbody's Construction team works on Ireland's largest and most complex construction projects. We advise on project origination and financing, mid-stream construction issues, and dispute resolution. We are known for being technically excellent, collaborative, and solution-focused in our work. On contentious matters we help clients resolve disputes successfully by early intervention, and through mediation, conciliation, adjudication, arbitration and litigation. On transactions and non-contentious matters we take a commercial and pragmatic approach to negotiation and service delivery.

Our team is the largest dedicated construction team in the market, comprised of four partners, thirteen other fee-earners, two trainees, and three personal assistants.  We pride ourselves on being a welcoming, supportive environment, and we are dedicated to continuous professional development. 

Our clients include developers, contractors, funders, institutional investors and procuring authorities involved in some of the largest and most high-profile projects in the State. We advise on projects across a diverse range of sectors including property development, housing, transport, utilities, telecommunications, and PPP. We also advise on joint-ventures, acquisitions (forward sales and forward funding), and M&A transactions in these sectors.

The role - background and experience

We are looking for ambitious newly-qualified solicitors who have a real interest in pursuing a career within the construction-law sector.  They should be self-motivated, driven, have strong and demonstrated technical competencies, and excellent interpersonal skills. If you have completed a seat in Construction, Litigation, Commercial Property or Banking in a top law firm we’d be delighted to hear from you.  We also welcome applications from qualified barristers.
