Fantastic mix of public and private sector clients

Our client advises on all aspects of renewable energy projects and is led by one of the leading energy lawyers in the UK. Working with public and private sector clients as well as financiers and sponsors, the team brings some of the most innovative and impactful initiatives into being.

These are often large, complex and far-reaching projects necessitating the need to work with colleagues in project finance and construction and engineering so excellent communication and team working skills are a must.

Overview of recent work

The nature of the work undertaken by the team is vast and involves all facets of renewable energy including nuclear, solar, wind and hydro as well as biomass, PV, green hydrogen and hybrid systems. Recent projects include advising:

  • a combined authority on its electrification strategy from policy through to implementation;
  • on a complex hydro project (one of most significant of its kind) including advising the lending consortium;
  • a joint venture in relation to a state-of-the-art solar project
  • on drafting and negotiation of various commercial contracts in relation to downstream aspects (especially wholesale distribution) of major wind farm project.

A truly collaborative and national team

The team is spread nationally across the firm's network but they are ideally looking for candidates in the North in relation to this recruitment drive. So, whether you are based in the Northwest such as Manchester or Liverpool or in Yorkshire, we would be interested in speaking to you. Given the current climate, there has never been a more exciting (or more relevant) time to work in renewable energy.
