Harper James Solicitors is a growing, ambitious commercial law firm like no other. We are looking to recruit our next Senior Construction Solicitor.
Harper James is designed specifically to support entrepreneurial businesses from start-up to scale-up and beyond.
Toby Harper, its founder and CEO, previously worked in-house for a well-known venture capital firm. During his time there, he saw first-hand the barriers growth businesses faced in accessing quality legal advice, and decided something needed to be done.
Harper James aspires to disrupt the model for which legal services are provided to businesses. The Netflix of the legal world, the firm’s innovative approach to delivering highly tailored and accessible legal advice is considered genuinely different to the establishment.
Harper James is in its 8th year and hitting a £6m turnover. We have plans to triple this income by 2025. Getting in the right talent to support our growth is a key part of our strategy.
Our lawyers work on employed and flexible basis, working remotely with access to meeting space in Birmingham, Cambridge, London, Manchester, Oxford and Sheffield.
We work really hard to ensure our lawyers still feel part of a team so they can collaborate, share ideas and enjoy each other’s company. The remote set up allows people to work from wherever they want, to give people the flexibility they need, for whatever reason. But, we want people to feel that they belong to an ambitious company and that their contribution towards our growth is recognized individually and as a team.
If you want to build a team, we’ll support you and we will generously recognise and reward you for growth in that team too. As long as you want to work with entrepreneurial businesses, we will discuss any idea you have to do it.
We are looking for someone who can partner with us to service our existing clients and build on our construction practice. A client following is not an imperative, but you will need to demonstrate that you are well-networked and able to drive our construction practice forward.
To do so, you’ll be supported by a strong back-office infrastructure including finance, marketing and business development to ensure that your time is focused on servicing our clients and attracting new ones.
This opportunity is suited to a lawyer with wide ranging construction experience covering a caseload of contentious and non-contentious construction matters. Our clients’ projects are varied across a broad range of sectors and includes negotiating, drafting and amending a range of construction contracts and supporting clients on large scale projects.
We’d like to start the process by inviting you to an informal chat with our Head of talent, Leah Horwood. Be assured that all conversations are confidential and we will act discreetly throughout the process. You can call Leah direct or arrange a convenient time to speak by emailing her.

Our commercial lawyers are based in or close to major cities across the UK, providing expert legal advice to clients both locally and nationally.
We mainly work remotely, so we can work with you wherever you are. But we can arrange face-to-face meeting at our offices or a location of your choosing.
