We have one goal - to be the Best Scottish Law Firm in the World.

We are looking to recruit two Solicitors to join our Exploration & Production (“E&P”) division in our Aberdeen office. The successful candidates will work alongside E&P partners Brian Hemming and Bruce McLeod.

Candidates will be required to assist in the full range of E&P services that we provide including provision of advice on joint venture matters, assisting in the acquisition and disposal of Petroleum Production Licence interests and assisting in infrastructure access agreements required to develop offshore fields and to export hydrocarbons from them through platforms, pipelines and terminals owned by other joint ventures.

Ability to work in a close-knit team and a strong work ethic is also essential.

Candidates will ideally have knowledge of the oil and gas industry. However, those with general corporate experience will be considered.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading team in a successful, growing firm.
