Who we are

You’ll be joining a national law firm that enjoys a strong reputation, made possible by our exceptional people – each chosen for their industry knowledge and passion for their field. We want to help you to reach your full potential, love the work you do and deliver the best results for your clients. It’s our goal to make you feel great about working with us, and we work hard to cultivate a culture that makes it easy for you to stay with us for many years.

We work flexibly and you’ll be empowered to work where you do your best work, balancing your individual needs with the need for us to engage as teams and deliver excellent client service.

Most of our people choose to work in a hybrid fashion, working from home and attending our offices on occasion. Our offices are in Bristol, Birmingham,  Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton, and Taunton.

Relevant Expertise:

Demonstrating that you have expertise in:

  • Specialising in wholesale market trading arrangements in relation to energy commodities, route to market and power purchase arrangements.
  • Advising developers, utilities, corporates and financiers on all regulatory and commercial matters relating to energy projects, including power purchase, grid connection arrangements, optimisation and subsidy regimes for renewable generation and battery storage projects and also including familiarity with Ofgem rules and procedures.
  • All forms of route to market arrangements within the power sector and associated regulatory matters, including the contract for difference, capacity market and ROC/FIT schemes and accreditations.

This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to impact our already successful and reputable team.

This role is right for you if:

With at least six years of post-qualification experience, you will have established strong client relationships within the energy sector.

You will be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware. We are looking for someone who has strong client links and preferably a guaranteed following. However, if you have strong business development skills, the experience and confidence to develop and build business from existing clients as well as attracting new clients from other areas of practice across the firm and the wider business community, we would love to hear from you.

You will be a team player with excellent communication skills and drive. We undertake high quality, high profile and complex work. There is opportunity to be involved in business development and help shape the direction of the team moving forwards.

What we can offer you:

A career at Clarke Willmott will feel different to other law firms. We thrive on our individual differences and diversity because as a team, we are united by our shared values and mutual respect. Working with us you will feel empowered, valued and free to be yourself in a safe and supportive environment.

Our mission is to help you realise your full potential whilst maintaining a positive work-life balance. We provide a comprehensive learning and development programme and a range of wellbeing initiatives to support your career journey.

There’s no doubt we expect the best from our people and even the occasional extra mile. In return, your dedication and commitment to the continued success of the firm will be rewarded with a comprehensive range of flexible benefits.

Listen to what a few members of our team have to say about what life here at Clarke Willmott is really like, to see if it’s the right fit for you.
