Job Description

Partner/Partner Designate – Energy Regulation – Leading National Firm

Job Type:

Location: London

Job Level: Partner

Our client is a leading national firm which has made significant strides in recent years. The firm has a strong presence in several key sectors in which it can increasingly lay claim to be among the market leaders with a growing number of recognised individuals. The firm’s success is reflected in topline growth and improving profitability.

One of the firm’s strong suits is the energy sector, in which its practice is very well respected. The team is busy and expanding which has created the opportunity for a regulatory lawyer with energy experience to join a thriving team. You may be an existing partner, ideally with client relationships and some following to bring, but the firm will also consider a partner designate looking for immediate partnership.

The firm has a strong client base and the team is very active right now, so your expertise and fit with the team is the most important thing and our client will also consider an inhouse lawyer with sector expertise who is looking for a return to private practice.

Ideally you will have a range of regulatory experience in the energy sector and experience of the electricity market, with transmission and distribution being of particular interest and knowledge of the renewables market will be an advantage.

This is an excellent opportunity for a regulatory lawyer who is looking to make a mark within a thriving and ambitious energy practice which can offer an outstanding platform for your career in this sector.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity, please contact Chris Cayley of Cayley Coughtrie on 020 3617 2774 (07976 908762) or by email at
