Renewable Energy Partner – Large Mid-Market Firm
Our client, a substantial national practice with an established brand, is keen to meet commercial, corporate and projects lawyers with a renewable energy practice. They have various clients in the sector and are looking for someone to take the lead. So, an exciting opportunity for someone ambitious.
There are experts at the firm with planning, real estate, finance and some regulatory experience, so a nucleus of expertise from which to build. The real opportunity here is for a pure renewables specialist to take charge of the practice area. The firm has a footprint in the main clean energy “hubs” in the UK, and there is firm-wide buy in, including from the overall heads of strategy, to make this key hire.
Following is not the main consideration in this hire, although business development will be a key part of the role. The firm understands that this is an investment hire, so they are open to talking to current Legal Director or Of Counsel level lawyers as well as established partners. A team would also be of significant interest.
The firm itself is fairly distinctive – it has the status and infrastructure to support all manner of fee earning and non-fee earning experts, and candidates we have had talk to or join the firm have been impressed. We know a fair number of senior players at the firm so can give a good overview of our conversations.
They are committed to responsible business, ESG and their own net zero targets, and are consistently recognised as top employers. It's not a large international brand, but that is part of the charm for many, with flexible working as standard and competitive charge rates making it a solid option for many quality laterals.
