Senior Lawyer, Green Investment Group
Join the Macquarie Capital business group as a Senior Lawyer to support the newly established development platform in our Green Investment Group.

You will be part of and sit with the Macquarie Capital Legal team but will have primary responsibility for providing legal support to the Green Investment Group's development team, which is responsible for the successful management and delivery of renewables projects and providing asset management services to third party investors. You will have day-to-day interaction with colleagues in the Green Investment Group's project development and deal teams based in Europe.

You will have the benefit of being part of an established legal team but will take responsibility for providing legal advice (including reviewing and negotiating transaction and project documents and providing asset management and advisory services) in relation to the Green Investment Group's development team, specifically, in relation to:
  • EPC, O&M and procurement contracting and negotiation
  • project and legal due diligence
  • corporate advisory and secretary role for the Boards of project and holding companies
  • document handling through a document manager, including input on contract administration
  • advising on the terms of investments in development and construction stage infrastructure and renewables assets and joint venture and shareholder agreements
  • co-ordinating and managing the provision of local external legal advice to the Green Investment Group's development platforms
  • assisting in business compliance with relevant internal policies and external regulations and providing and maintaining template documents for use across platforms
  • assisting in dispute resolution matters.

To be successful in this role, you will be 7+ years PQE, with strong experience in the energy and/or infrastructure sector especially in contract management and project development gained through working in a law firm and/or in-house. Experience working on infrastructure and/or renewables projects will be important and experience working in-house or in industry would be highly beneficial.

You will be able to demonstrate initiative, be self-directed and have a strong sense of personal motivation, including the ability to complete projects and provide advice in a timely manner. You will enjoy assuming responsibility and demonstrate the confidence to work in a team environment as well as independently on transactions and manage projects as part of the development team. You'll also be able to negotiate, draft and review complex project documents and have a strong understanding of key legal risks on development and construction projects, with the ability to proactively identify and manage risks as they arise. It is essential that you have strong technical legal skills with an attention to detail and an ability to deliver a high standard of work under tight time constraints.

If you possess a strong sense of commercial acumen, with strong verbal and written communication skills, and want to work in a fast-paced and dynamic environment, we want to hear from you.
