Job Description

This is a terrific opportunity for a senior-level construction lawyer to build a construction team with this highly prestigious Top-15 UK international law firm that is growing rapidly across its international offices, particularly Asia. As part of their global strategy to grow their award-winning international construction practice group, they are now actively hiring an experienced construction partner to spearhead a construction revolution in their Hong Kong office!

You would join a 10+ strong disputes resolution team in Hong Kong, and your expertise would ‘slot in’ to provide a regional offering for the firm’s global construction clients.

You are a heavyweight construction partner at a leading law firm in Hong Kong, with an exceptional track record of regional and local construction arbitration matters. You should be qualified to practice in Hong Kong, fluent in Mandarin (written and spoken), in addition to excellent English language capabilities. Fluent spoken Cantonese would be advantageous. The firm adopts an entrepreneurial and collegiate approach, and a highly capable construction lawyer with excellent client development skills with a natural team playing ability would thrive on this fantastic platform.
