Maclay Murray & Spens LLP is one of the UK’s pre-eminent law firms with offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.

We are looking for a Senior Solicitor to join the Capital Projects practice group of our Edinburgh office.  This team is considered a leading adviser in both the primary and secondary UK infrastructure market advising both sponsors and funders across a number of sectors including Education, Health, Transport and, increasingly, Renewable Energy. 

There are opportunities to work on a broad range of UK-wide transactions and the work carried out by the Capital Projects team, whilst focussed on large scale primary and secondary infrastructure projects, encompasses elements of corporate, financial services, banking, construction, commercial and general transactional advice. The successful candidate can expect to be involved in new build projects as well as the sale and purchase of operational projects and will gain excellent experience in drafting and negotiating both project and finance documentation.

The successful candidate will have around 3 years post qualifying experience, preferably in projects, regulatory and/or renewables. 

In terms of skill set we are looking for candidates who have excellent project management skills, are capable of working effectively within a team and who have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.  We also expect candidates to be technically outstanding, commercially focussed and demonstrate a desire to be involved in the on-going development of the practice.

If you have the attributes described above, this is an excellent opportunity to join a highly rated team with a prestigious client base.  The role itself will be varied and interesting with a high degree of client contact from the outset.

The firm offers a high quality working environment with a competitive salary and benefits package.
