Lawyer with Common Law Background

European Energy A/S

Are you specialized in corporate law at the highest level, and do you want to join the fastest moving and changing business area, i.e., renewable energy? Do you want to negotiate, advise on, and draft contracts related to acquisitions, sales processes, partnerships/joint ventures, and complex commercial contracts regarding wind and solar projects globally? Then perhaps you are our new colleague.

European Energy covers all phases of wind and photovoltaic (PV) solar projects, from early project development to operation and divestment of energy assets. We are 390+ employees from 30 different nationalities, and since 2004 we have installed more than 100 renewable energy projects representing a total value of more than DKK 15 billion. Currently, we have a development pipeline exceeding 17 GW and operate globally with our headquarter located in Copenhagen and offices in Sweden, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania, Poland, Bulgaria, Spain, and more to come. Our goal is to become one of the largest contributors to the global transition to a fossil-free society.

The legal department at European Energy consists of 12 lawyers. We are an international team with a solid skillset within corporate law, construction law, real property law, M&A, finance transactions, and commercial contracts. We advise the European Energy organization about all legal and contractual aspects related to development, acquisition, financing, construction, and divestment of wind- and large-scale solar projects.

We are looking for a qualified and business-minded lawyer with significant common law experience as well as corporate law experience at a high level and who can independently handle legal processes, contract negotiations, and major transactions, as well as developing, and maintaining relationships with that part of our business that operates in common law countries, in particular United States, United Kingdom, and Australia.

Areas of Responsibility

  • Counsel and draft contracts related to the acquisition and divestment of international wind- and solar projects, as well as partnership and joint venture agreements and commercial contracts related to projects and the day-to-day business
  • Conduct complex negotiations and handling of legal processes and transactions
  • Sparring with colleagues from the legal team and the other departments about specific project-related topics, including risk assessment and risk mitigation
  • Develop innovative contractual and structural solutions to mitigate risk or solve problems
  • Develop, build, and maintain relationships with the business and provide ongoing legal services to the business at a high level
  • Relationship building with the business is important for this position, and therefore some traveling will be required to succeed in this position

Your Profile

  • You have a university degree in law and are a qualified lawyer
  • You have solid experience with corporate law from working as a lawyer in either the United Kingdom, the United States, or Australia
  • You are skilled at handling complex commercial contracts
  • You have excellent English skills
  • You are thorough and analytical in the execution of your work
  • You work well in teams and can work well together with all types of people regardless of their background
  • You are good at building relationships
  • You are pragmatic and have a good commercial understanding of when to compromise and when to stand up for the optimal solution
  • You work independently and thrive with responsibility from day one
  • You possess strong problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • You thrive working in a fast-paced entrepreneurial company with speedy and efficient decision processes
  • It is an advantage (but not a requirement) that you have experience with energy-related legal and contractual tasks

We Offer
We offer an exciting and diverse workday in an international company, which is growing at a high pace. You will be part of a dynamic and professional environment, where you will get a central role in the machinery that makes our business model work. The role is an independent role that comes with a lot of freedom and flexibility. We offer a competitive salary package and work-life balance.
