Our culture of cross team and cross skill working with clients in partnership and of affording client contact and responsibility at all levels of experience makes this a rewarding environment to join.

Opportunities to develop other sector related skills and to experience secondment posts arise regularly for suitable candidates.

The team deals with development and acquisition of energy projects onshore and offshore to over 1GW through to promotion and development of strategic mixed use developments up to around 5000 units.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • To deliver legal advice and services in energy and property law - including renewables and electricity, environment and planning, strategic land and complex title examination, due diligence and related conveyancing, leases and other land rights and options;

  • Conducting research into technical energy and commercial property matters and related issues;
  • To support marketing and business development projects where required.
