You will also be working as part of a team on larger transactions: drafting and negotiating security documents, co-ordinating and negotiating condition precedent documents, co-ordinating overseas advice, drafting and negotiating legal opinions, as well as organising and attending completion meetings in Aberdeen, London and overseas.
