The Austin office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate to join its M&A & Corporate Transactions Department – Energy Transactional practice.
Our Energy lawyers are on the front lines of the high-profile, legal regulatory and business issues that are emerging in the current energy, environmental and infrastructure markets (e.g., renewable energy sources, related transactions and regulation, among others). McGuireWoods has an active practice in solar, wind, and biomass energy (the latter including biofuels, landfill gas, biomass gasification and waste-to-energy). We represent developers, investors, industrials, utilities and customers of renewable energy facilities in connection with: (1) the development, acquisition and financing of renewable energy projects; (2) siting projects and facilities; (3) interconnection and permitting issues; (4) the purchase and sale of energy and energy commodities; (5) the purchase and sale of renewable energy companies; and (6) renewable energy project and operational capital-raising transactions.
Qualified candidates will have 2-6 years of law firm mergers & acquisitions or project finance experience. Experience with renewable energy, oil & gas, project development or project finance is helpful. This is a terrific opportunity to join a dynamic and growing energy practice with a strong emphasis on the acquisition, development and financing of renewable energy projects and power generation assets. Candidates should possess strong interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with client business and legal teams. Licensed to practice in Texas preferred.
