Commercial law firm in the City is looking to recruit a Commercial Rail lawyer of 0 to 4 years PQE. This role primarily involves working with commercial contracts and advising on regulation and projects, specifically within the rail sector. The past few years have been highly successful for the rail team, which has seen the client base significantly grow and the team expanding accordingly. Key areas of expertise include: • franchising and concessions (advising private sector operators and owning groups on their bids) – recent experience includes advising a rail operator on a number of its franchises and concessions • rolling stock (advising manufacturers on bids for new rolling stock contracts and associated maintenance arrangements; also advising operators on rolling stock procurement) – recent experience includes advising a manufacturer on its successful bid to provide new rolling stock and maintenance services across a number of franchises and on other bids for new rolling stock within the UK • regulation (advising on the regulation of the rail sector, including track and station access and new regulatory arrangements) • infrastructure (advising on the structuring, real estate, construction and regulatory aspects of infrastructure development) • rolling stock and depot financing (advising financiers on the financing of new rolling stock and depots) – recent experience includes advising a bank on the acquisition of a portfolio of European rolling stock portfolio.

This role will primarily involve the first four categories and may also involve working closely with the rail partners on a full range of rail-related matters which may also include the procurement of new rolling stock, infrastructure development and other regulatory matters.

Ideally candidates will have experience of providing Commercial law advice within the Rail sector, either from working in private practice or as an in-house lawyer at one of the Rail sector companies. However, our client will also consider generalist Commercial lawyers who can demonstrate an interested in the Rail sector. Newly-qualified candidates will have undertaken a seat in Commercial law.
