A rare opportunity for a Legal Director (or Senior Associate) to join the highly regarded Employment law team within this international law firm, based at the firm's office in Aberdeen.
This Employment and Reward Group is independently recognised as one of the best and most experienced teams in the country. With over 85 employment lawyers and 15 paralegals across their UK and international offices, they have one of the best resourced teams of employment specialists of any law firm in the country, offering both national coverage and an international offering through their employment specialists in Europe, the Gulf and Asia Pacific.
The Aberdeen office has a particular focus on the energy sector. Their client base includes operators, large service providers and international drilling contractors. They provide strategic advice on issues such as the application of the Working Time Regulations to offshore workers, offshore contracting and TUPE, and trade union relations. The work will often have an international dynamic as they regularly advise clients on expat and inpat issues and cross border restructuring projects.
The successful candidate will have significant employment law experience in either a large commercial regional, City or international firm, building up technical and market knowledge and with specific experience of dealing with strategic employment law advice, cross-border issues, and senior executive/board room issues and management of complex or high value Employment Tribunal litigation. Knowledge of the energy sector and in particular the oil & gas industry is particularly desirable.
You will already have experience of being a senior lawyer in a team and demonstrate a track record in developing business.
