Job Details

The Opportunity
I am working with a top 100 national law firm on several energy/projects roles at different seniority levels (Associate/Senior Associate/Legal Director). They currently have 12 lawyers in the team, including 3 market-leading Legal 500 ranked Partners.

The Role
The Energy team has exceptional experience in the energy market and advises high-profile private sector clients, and many UK wide public sector organisations, on a range of energy and infrastructure projects across different energy sources and technologies, including:

  • Energy from Waste projects and Waste/Resource Management
  • District Heating projects
  • Solar PV and Battery Storage projects
  • City Wide Decarbonisation projects
  • Electric Vehicle Projects
  • Hydrogen projects
  • Carbon Capture Usage and Storage projects
  • Smart energy projects

The Ideal Candidate
The Energy teams consists of lawyers that have transferred into the energy sector from a diverse set of skills and experience. They will therefore consider candidates from a range of backgrounds and experience including, a lawyer with projects, construction, commercial, FM, investor or finance expertise without direct experience of the energy sector.

One of the key attributes that they look for in applicants is a passion to learn, enthusiasm and the desire to excel as a lawyer in the energy sector. They are also looking for a team player that enjoys delivering projects as part of a team and is keen to share knowledge, skills and experience for the benefit of the wider team.
