  • Senior Associate;
  • Designate Partner.

Our client is seeking to appoint a commercial property specialist that will focus on renewable energy work.  The new appointee will be our law firm client’s first point of contact, regarding this new specialist sector of business.

The face of global renewable and clean energy development is constantly changing with increasing environmental awareness and focus, backed by government incentives and emerging technologies.

For those candidates active in the law energy industry these new factors present a whole new range of opportunities and challenges. From the 20 per cent renewable energy target set by the European Council, to the government imposed bidding process for Chinese wind projects, the market is, and will continue to be, subject to change.

New expandable career opportunities are opening up as new and improved technologies emerge and legislation and international processes evolve. As governments look to new ways to support or control expansion and development, from the amendments to the public procurement regime in the UK to the new regulatory framework in Spain, so investment decisions change.

You will currently be advising on many aspects of all renewable and clean energy technologies including:

  • Onshore and offshore wind;
  • Biomass;
  • Waste and landfill gas to energy;
  • Solar;
  • Wave and tidal;
  • Hydro generation;
