GENERAL COUNSEL, OIL AND GAS, ABU DHABI

 

CLIENT: Due to re-structuring and expansion, this client is now looking for a new General Counsel to join them in Abu Dhabi. The work is diverse but predominantly focussed into the oil and gas sector.

 

ROLE: You will have a commercial reporting line to the CEO and be tasked with both establishing and developing the legal function. The work will cover a broad spectrum of O&G sector work such as corporate, commercial, disputes, compliance and regulatory. It will range from heavy lifting projects with extensive drafting and negotiating, down to more general day to day matters. The role will also involve mentoring and training up junior staff.

 

CANDIDATE: It is essential that you have trained and qualified with a strong international standard law firm, and ideally on top of that, will have in-house experience. It is a senior level role and candidates will need in excess of 10 PQE. Skill sets should have experience in O&G and large projects work, as well corporate, commercial and standard in-house work.

 

It will be hugely beneficial to be based in the region already, although overseas applications will be considered. Arabic is helpful but not needed.
