Across Europe, demand for legal talent in offshore wind is growing as governments ramp up ambitious deployment targets.

This week’s summit in Ostend, Belgium, saw European leaders pledge to multiply the capacity of projects in the North Sea by eight times current levels before 2050, creating “Europe’s biggest green power plant” in the process. The rapid pace of deployment means more general counsels, contract experts, and M&A and international law specialists will be required in the sector in coming years.

And having already delivered more than 5GW covering the entire offshore wind value chain, its mission is to help achieve global decarbonisation, providing a sustainable and secure energy system for future generations. We’re working with this global leader to fill these legal vacancies:
