The energy sector is a fast-moving, challenging and dynamic sector and our skilled energy lawyers support energy companies through offering practical and innovative solutions, enabling our clients to achieve their ambitions for sustainable growth.

Our nationally recognised Energy and Natural Resources team have an impressive client base from across the globe, ranging from entrepreneurial new entrants and joint ventures to established independents, vertically integrated utilities, financial institutions, governments and world-wide energy giants.

The team headed up by Partners Simon Hughes and Anthony Alderman, now has an exciting opportunity for a real estate lawyer to join them in either Bristol or Southampton.

What will you be doing?

Working closely with Simon and Anthony, you'll experience a wide range of property work from development projects, acquisitions and disposals to landlord and tenant, asset management and portfolio management instructions for national and international energy clients; and as the team act on all real estate elements of major energy infrastructure developments, you'll see yourself involved in project development work for new generation projects in relation to both renewable energy transactions and mainstream power and pipeline projects.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

We're keen to see applications from either experienced real estate lawyers ideally with previous energy sector experience looking to build on that experience or newly qualified lawyers who've had exposure to quality real estate work during their training contracts from a large regional or city firm with a genuine enthusiasm to build a career in this specialism.  Just as important are excellent drafting skills, a sense of commercial pragmatism and the ability to build lasting relationships with our clients. 

What will you get in return?

This sizeable team provides the chance to learn from reputable highly rated lawyers and is supported by clear personal development, providing an opportunity to develop a career path in a regarded specialism.  Working with the highest calibre clients, in a collaborative collegiate environment, we believe this to be a unique opportunity for the right person.

We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms.   We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that become lasting friendships.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.

If you think that’s you, why not get in touch to find out more; my name is Emma Forrester and you can reach me on 0117 989 6593.
