Projects Lawyer, Associate or Managing Associate – Bristol

My Client’s Bristol Projects Team is part of a national Projects & Procurement practice which supports our clients in delivering multi million pound projects in the UK, Middle East and Africa.  Our 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.

The 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.  The team is ideally looking for a projects lawyer 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.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

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.  If you've got clear sector experience particularly within thermal or renewable power which is key, although not exclusive, to our strategic growth, then we're very keen to speak with you.  As important will be your ability to get to grips with a broad range of legal disciplines and to collaborate closely with, and coordinate colleagues in, other specialisms to deliver the right results for our clients.
