*3+ years of previous experience inside a multinational company and/or a law firm.
*Significant experience in dealing with projects documentation with a strong sense of bankability. Experience in permitting of energy projects in the UK a plus.
*Significant experience in contract review and negotiation.
*Strong ability to manage outside counsel/law firms.
*Team player and hard-worker, can-do attitude, with a good business judgement in providing compliant and business friendly legal solutions attention to detail. Ability to work efficiently, prioritize workflow, meet demanding deadlines, manage multiple projects are of the essence.
