Energy Projects Solicitor - City of London - Private Practice

Tier 1, International, law firm has retained us to recruit an experienced Energy Projects Solicitor due to continued expansion.

The Firm

This is a Global 100, law firm, with nearly 3500 employees operating out of 26 locations across Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. Their global reach ensures that they are well-placed to advise on complex multi-jurisdictional matters across a full range of legal disciplines.

The firm has significant credentials in the technology, financial services, energy, infrastructure, real estate, and advanced manufacturing sectors. Services provided across these sectors include asset management and investment funds, corporate and M&A, commercial, competition, litigation and arbitration, banking, restructuring, insurance, regulatory, construction, projects, pensions, property, planning and environmental, procurement, outsourcing, employment, share plans and incentives, technology and tax advice.

The Team

Energy is one of the firm's key sectors and we have one of the largest dedicated energy teams of any international law firm. They are widely recognised as one of the leading providers of legal services to the energy industry, covering the entire value chain internationally. As the world moves from a high carbon to a high metals environment, there will be increasing demand for lawyers who can bridge the mining, wider extractives (including oil & gas) and energy fields.

The role sits within the London Energy Transition & Finance team, which is part of the Projects Group. The team leads on some of the most important international transactional and advisory matters in the EMEA region and works closely with M&A and disputes teams on multidisciplinary mandates where an "energy" skill-set is a leading strategic driver. The team has acted on the acquisition of a massive lithium project, the creation of new national energy companies and large energy restructuring across the continent of Africa.

The Candidate

You will be commercially aware with keen eye for detail and have strong corporate, commercial or energy experience. Enthusiasm for transactional and advisory work as well as a strong academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills are required. Experience in mining or oil & gas work is desired, but not essential.

The role demands undertaking business development and marketing activities with enthusiasm, and may involve international travel including to Europe and Africa. Additional languages are helpful but not a pre-requisite.

Given the level of the work involved, the firm is looking for someone in the region of 3 - 7 years qpe. This is for guidance, not fixed

You will work closely with the head of department, whose remit covers global projects, meaning you will enjoy unrivalled exposure to the best quality work.
