The job

Our team engages in providing legal and commercial advice on renewable energy, new technology and energy and supply law, and we have extensive experience of providing advice on and dealing with the long-cycle, complex processes often associated with renewable energy.

As an attorney or lawyer, you will have a unique opportunity to contribute to solving some of the team’s exciting and complex cases, work closely with one of the most competent teams in the industry and provide some of the best legal and commercial solutions on the market.

Tasks
Your work will include the following:

  • All legal aspects of transactions concerning renewable energy, including:
    • Performing and coordinating due diligence work for Danish investments
    • Drafting, reviewing and negotiating transaction documents, including investment agreements, transfer agreements, purchase agreements and joint venture agreements for both Danish and international investments
    • Coordinating transactional work with our own team, liaison lawyers abroad and other advisors
