SENIOR LEGAL COUNSEL, OIL AND GAS, UAE
CLIENT: We are working with an interesting O&G client who has a domestic and international portfolio of operations. With an expanding legal team and flow of work, they are seeking to add an additional lawyer to their ranks.
ROLE: Reporting to the General Counsel, you will handle a broad range of corporate and commercial work covering the oil and gas industry. The team is small and a great deal of reliance will be put onto this particular role, closing international deals and assisting the commercial teams with issues, disputes and objectives. The work pace will be fast and likely involve a degree of international travel.
CANDIDATE: There are some essential criteria for the role:
- You will need distinct experience in the O&G sector, either from a law firm or in-house
- A common law qualification is a must, as well as experience in an international standard law firm or recognised large corporate entity, and preferably both
- A willingness to move to the UAE, or ideally be already based here
- 6-10 PQE (the structure of the team means that more senior lawyers need not be considered)
