About the job

The Corporate Affairs team acts as a strategic business partner primarily supporting QatarEnergy’s finance / tax business units and advising the corporation on corporate law and financing structuring/restructuring as the group expands its local and international activities, presence and investments.

As Senior Counsel, you will be primarily responsible for advising on corporate/finance transactions and structuring for the corporation and its group, locally and globally. Experience of corporate / financing structures for global investments in the Americas and Africa is helpful but not essential as we are supported by regional legal experts.

The Corporate Affairs is a friendly and tight-knit team who value collaboration. Therefore, a willingness to support the broader legal work of the team is a must. This could include general commercial agreements and advice to business units on IT, cybersecurity and intellectual property matters, although we have legal specialists in these fields who will be available to share knowledge and experience.

The role would suit a corporate / finance lawyer looking to make the transition from private practice to in-house or an experienced in-house corporate / commercial senior counsel. The candidate does not need to have an intimate knowledge of the energy sector as the Legal Department has energy-sector legal specialists with whom the candidate would work closely and collaboratively.

Requirements

  • At least 10 years of legal practice experience (common law or civil jurisdiction), with a good working knowledge of corporate / commercial / contract law
  • Candidates from either private practice or in-house sectors will be considered equally
  • Proven track record to work independently on complex legal matters
  • Superior analytical skills
  • Excellent command of spoken and written English

Education
