Are you looking for an opportunity to work with a market leading practice that has grown significantly in recent years? You will work alongside industry leading Partners in a highly ranked Legal 500 team.

The Firm

Ranked in the Top 100, this firm has a culture which stands them apart from the usual commercial machine of the City. They do things differently, despite them employing over 1000 lawyers globally people do not feel like a small cog in a big machine, they have a culture of investing heavily in staff, so people feel recognised for the work, talent, and contribution that they make.

They are a modern practice with a non-hierarchical management style. They are dynamic, creative, entrepreneurial, and progressive and have won numerous awards for their diversity and working culture. Over recent years the practice has significantly grown due to increased workload and the hire of many new heavy hitting lawyers.

The firm now has over 15 offices across the US, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Due to a recent increase in workflow, a vacancy has arisen for a new Real Estate Associate to join their thriving Birmingham office.

The Role

The Energy practice team is thriving. They have grown continuously over the last 5 years, both in top-line revenue and profits terms and have a varied and high quality client base.

Each member of the team has a client facing role and is given the opportunity to develop client relationships. This role is no different and provides a real opportunity to develop a range of client handling skills. You will therefore be good at dealing directly with clients (with appropriate levels of support) both on the telephone and in face to face to meetings.

The team is tight-knit and not at all hierarchical. There are three partners, one Director, two associates, one solicitor and two PAs. Some members of the team are principally regulatory focused, others have more of a commercial focus. However the team work seamlessly together utilising those skill sets to deliver a first class service to their clients whatever their requirements. They also frequently work with specialist lawyers from across the wider firm on transactional energy mandates.

Working in an inclusive, sharing and collaborative culture, your success will be integral to ensure the continuing success and growth of the team and the firm.

The Requirements

  • You will be able to demonstrate strong academic performance and good experience of advising on (including drafting and negotiating) a wide variety of commercial agreements including complex contracts. Strong commercial contracts experience is a pre -requisite of the role. Energy experience (or experience of advising in other regulated sectors) is desirable, though not essential.
  • Energy stakeholders also often require advice on the application of relevant law (including new developments) to their business. You will also have the strong research skills and the ability and confidence to produce accurate, succinct written advice to clients.
  • You will be level headed and pragmatic, willing to learn and prepared to apply the commercial contracts and advisory skill sets you have developed (and will continue to develop) in a different and exciting context.
