The Team

Cundall are an international multi-disciplinary consultancy operating from over 20 locations across the globe, with a passion for innovative and sustainable design.

 

Our Legal team’s mission is to play a key role in ensuring Cundall continues to grow as an internationally renowned and respected engineering consultancy, by providing legal advice and support across all locations in relation to risk, contracts, insurance, and other areas of legal impact.

The Role

We are looking for a talented and dedicated lawyer to join our in-house team, to assist our Legal Director with the review and management of the contractual arrangements of our projects. This represents a rare opportunity for a lawyer to take on or further a career in an “in-house” role, in a creative, interesting, and evolving business.

 

Working with our Legal Director and the legal team, you will take responsibility for the review of contracts by reference to clear rules and guidance, and the production of advice in relation to the same.

 

You will also take responsibility for other contractual advice such as the validity or otherwise of requests for assignments of Cundall’s appointments or for additional Collateral Warranties / Third Party Rights, as well as the maintenance of our contracts database.

 

You will also be expected to undertake claims administration and debt recovery work.

The Skills

You will be a qualified solicitor with relevant practical experience. You will have utilised your analytic skills and strong attention to detail when analysing and (ideally) drafting contracts and other legal documents. You have excellent verbal and written communication skills.

 

Experience advising on professional engineering consultancy appointments and building contracts is desirable.
