THE FIRM

A highly regarded UK law firm with strong international connections.

THE ROLE

Their Bristol Projects Team is part of a national Projects & Procurement practice which supports its clients in delivering multi million pound projects in the UK, Middle East and Africa.

The firm's clients cover both the private and public sectors, from project developers in the power, renewable energy and waste sectors, through national defence contractors to large local authorities.

This team is a central projects hub that works closely with other disciplines to deliver complex infrastructure projects for our clients.

Recent examples include thermal and renewable power plants, district heating infrastructure, gas supply and storage plants and large defence contracts - the work is challenging and varied.

ABOUT YOU

The team is ideally looking for a projects lawyer with 4pqe+ who has a strong track record in the development and financing of infrastructure projects, including advising on project structuring, risk allocation and bankability issues as well as the drafting of concession and project agreements, intra-consortium arrangements (teaming/bidding, shareholders' and equity subscription agreements), feedstock and offtake agreements (including PPAs) and subcontracts.

You'll be an experienced lawyer in a transactional area such as projects, corporate, construction or project finance in which you've had some exposure to projects work across a range of sectors, ideally in a large City or national practice, looking to further focus your career on the development of infrastructure projects.

Specific sector experience particularly within thermal or renewable power which is key, although not exclusive, to the firm's strategic growth, will be of special interest.

In this role you'll be pivotal to the continuing growth and development of the firm's projects offering, growing an important strand of the business from a strong platform of loyal and happy clients.

Supported by clear personal development, and the chance to learn from leaders in their field, this role provides an opportunity for a lawyer in the early part of their career to develop a true career path in a regarded specialism.

Working with the highest calibre clients, in a collaborative collegiate environment, the firm believes this to be a unique opportunity for the right person.

Alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
