Reference: SP890621
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Energy & Resources - Oil & Gas

A leading global law firm which has made great strides over the last two decades. The firm in Europe has attracted several leading lawyers, across all practice areas and the pedigree of the partners often comes as a surprise to potential laterals.

At the heart of that transformation has been the global growth of the energy practice, which has truly benefitted from the vast international platform. The firm now has almost 500 energy lawyers and over 50 lawyers specialising in oil and gas. As such, the firm is very well-regarded for upstream, midstream and downstream work and is listed as a top tier team in the directories.

The firm has actively recruited corporate energy lawyers in London and the focus is now on recruiting a projects, oil and gas partner. There is a gap at the mid-senior level and with the current hierarchy of the team, there may be an opportunity for leadership in the short term.

In London, the firm represents a number of large oil and gas producers and transporters, across a number of geographies. There will be some immediate client opportunities, but you will be expected to bring relationships. The firm is a popular choice with the clients of incoming laterals as there is total full service and there are flexible charge-out rates.
