Who are we? We advise on innovative, complex projects, which are frequently in the headlines. Our three UK offices (London, Leeds and Manchester) work as one business unit, meaning associates have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects work.The key thread of what we do is that most of our work is bespoke, non commodity. Each day can be different but people have the choice as they progress to specialise in areas they enjoy most. Most of our team comes from a non projects transactional background. For example, banking, commercial, construction and corporate lawyers and there is a training programme to help grasp the fundamentals of this area. The work often involves travelling and also being able to see the result of the work, whether that is a power station; a new railway station or essential social and health facilities such as a new hospital. What do we do each day? The sort of work we do includes: High profile advice for the Department of Transport on rail franchising Closing the largest renewable heat deal in the UK for an investment fund (FT front page) Advising an international contractor on the Thames Tunnel project Advising Network Rail on High Speed 2 (Frequently on the front page!) Being one of only 3 core panel members to Scottish & Southern Energy (Lead, The Lawyer) Advising public sector entities such as The Danish Government on a bridge procurement; OFGEM and DECC on regulatory matters and several local bodies on healthcare deals. What are the opportunities for me? We are implementing a plan to be a leader in the transport, energy and other large infrastructure space. We are expanding rapidly and an expanding market space always leads to opportunities.We have and opportunity for a newly qualified lawyer to join our team. Why should I be interested? If you like doing exciting bespoke work where every day is different, the work will suit you. If you like taking responsibility from an early stage, it will also suit. If you like travelling and you are ambitious it also suits-career prospects are excellent at all levels and we have a track record of our teams being promoted through our different levels.
