Maddocks - Melbourne, VIC

Legal
Source: uWorkin

JOB DESCRIPTION

Maddocks is committed to making a difference for our clients, our people and the communities in which we operate.


About the role


We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Associate to join Maddocks’ construction litigation team, working with Paul Woods and Anna Scannell. The Construction team has five Partners and works across both front and back-end matters. The team has a strong pipeline of varied and interesting work, across a range of clients, including large construction companies and developers as well as government departments and entities. 


This role will see you working across a range of matters for both our public and private clients, including:


  • Disputes relating to time (extension of time and delay costs), variations and defects (including latent defects) arising on construction and infrastructure projects.
  • Litigated construction disputes in Victorian Courts
  • Arbitrations under domestic commercial arbitration legislation in Australia
  • Expert determination and mediation
  • Experience advising on construction insurance policies (experience in this area would be a bonus but is not essential).


Industries include commercial, energy, gas, electricity, road, rail, mining and residential projects.

Working as a Senior Associate in the team, you will have the opportunity to work both autonomously and collaboratively with Partners and other members of the team on both mid and larger scale matters. You will have significant client contact and supervise and mentor more junior lawyers as required.


About you


This role would suit someone who has approximately 5+ years’ experience working on Construction Litigation. You will most likely have worked in a mid or top tier firm across a range of construction disputes. You will also have the following skills:

  • Excellent communication skills with a proactive approach
  • Strong academic results
  • Ability to work both autonomously and within larger teams
  • A commitment to technical excellence and to continuing learning and development


By joining this team, you will be offered strong mentoring and support and the ability to progress your career in a collegiate environment.


About us


We are a proudly independent Australian law firm that works closely with corporations, businesses and governments throughout Australia and internationally. We have a particular focus on the built environment, education, government, healthcare and technology sectors. Our commitment to our clients and their goals is matched by our commitment to our people and their career goals.


What makes us unique


We look for diversity of experience and background and then provide the tools for career success. We will provide you with targeted training and development programs so that you can achieve your career goals.

Maddocks offers opportunities to work flexibly and provides access to a wide range of staff benefits, including discounted private health cover and access to our comprehensive Health & Wellbeing and Learning & Development programs.

We are proud leaders of the legal profession when it comes to promoting a diverse workforce. We have been an Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA) Employer of Choice for Women every year since 2004. We promote diversity internally through our Maddocks Women and Maddocks Pride groups and we are committed to sustainability through our membership of the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA). We also have a thriving pro bono practice, which in FY19 completed more than 9,100 hours of pro bono work for a wide range of community organisations and individuals.
