Corporate Legal Counsel – Oil & Gas – Contract – Central London – Competitive Salary

We are working for the UK’s largest onshore oil and gas fields operator. They are looking for a mid-level lawyer, with a corporate background from a top 20 firm, for a 10 month maternity cover. The role is in a small legal team, allowing you great exposure to the business and legal operations.

The role encompasses:

  • Involvement in corporate acquisitions and disposals, including assisting in drafting, reviewing and negotiating share and asset sale/purchase agreements and related documents
  • Drafting, reviewing, negotiating and interpreting commercial agreements relevant to the oil and gas industry
  • Dealing with company secretarial matters
  • Assisting in litigation
  • Advising on some matters alone while assisting General Counsel on dealing with larger projects and litigation

As the company are going through a reorganisation this role offers lots of meaty corporate work to get involved with. Reporting into the GC, this is a good opportunity for someone to transition out of private practice and gain experience working in-house in an interesting industry.

The ideal start date is mid-November; but this could be flexible.  The pay is competitive.

If interested, please email a copy of your CV to for a confidential conversation.
