About the role
This busy Commercial team is one of the largest in the UK acting for a broad client base including governments, regulatory bodies, energy suppliers, project developers, major utilities, network owner/operators and a wide range of corporates. No two days are the same and daily tasks will include:
- Advising on (and often developing) a wide range of commercial contracts relevant to the sector, from long term high-value power purchase and fuel supply agreements to multi-party industry codes
- Supporting energy transactional work including developing, financing and selling energy generation and infrastructure projects, working closely with other teams in the firm
- Helping structure projects, advising on commercial contracts and providing specialist due diligence input supporting the corporate and finance teams
In particular, this opportunity presents an exciting opportunity to work alongside experts in this field with Partners being highly commended in the Legal 500.
About the person
The successful Commercial Solicitor will be a UK qualified solicitor with at least 6 months' experience gained in Commercial matters. Ideally you will have experience in energy work but this is not a pre-requisite to apply for the role.
