The Team

The Environment, Safety and Planning team at Norton
Rose Fulbright is a multi- disciplinary specialist team based in the
London office but part of a global network. The team attracts
instructions in its own right led by specialist partners Caroline
May ( Environment, Safety and Product liability) and Sarah
Fitzpatrick (Planning) and also provides support to the firm’s
corporate, real estate, projects and energy teams. The team consists
of two partners, one special counsel, one senior associate and 2 more
junior associates, all supported by a trainee. Paralegal support is
also available. This role is for an A2 associate to act
independently and as part of the team under the supervision of the
partners. There is a chance to explore all areas of specialism in
the team but the immediate need is for environmental and planning experience.

The Role

We are looking for an Associate in the Environment,
Safety and Planning Team in the London office. This specialist team
advises on matters relating to planning law, environmental law, and
safety law including product liability. An Associate is not expected
to have experience across all disciplines although experience of
both planning and environmental law is desirable.

In relation to planning an Associate can expect to
advise developer clients across a wide range of developments
including: residential, hotel, office, retail, sport, leisure,
student accommodation, and energy projects. Current projects are
spread across the UK, although a significant proportion are London
redevelopments. Projects include those with complicated transport
interfaces, heritage issues, high rise and views impacts, An
Associate can expect to be involved in a range of work covering
strategic advice, review of planning applications, negotiation of
statutory agreements, applications for statutory orders, planning
appeals, enforcement matters, high court challenges, examinations in
public, development objections, and cases in the Upper Tribunal
(Lands Chamber), as well as providing transactional support,
particularly to the energy, infrastructure, and real estate teams.

In relation to environment and safety, the team
provides stand-alone regulatory and compliance advice (civil and
criminal litigation), defence of prosecutions and licensing and
permitting issues/appeals as well as providing transactional support
to the energy, mining, infrastructure projects and real estate
teams. The team is currently involved in some high profile cases and
has an increasing specialism in product regulation and product
safety where the firm’s global network is particularly helpful.

The successful candidate should have a broad range of
experience gained in the UK, although experience of other
jurisdictions will be considered, and should enjoy working as part
of a specialist and global team. The opportunity will expose the
successful candidate to cutting edge and high profile transactions,
an international client base and all within a supportive, collegiate
and vibrant team. The team is headed by high profile partners
Caroline May, EMEA Head of Environment and Safety, and Sarah
Fitzpatrick Head of Planning.

Skills and Experience Required

Experience at a City or national firm is preferred
including broad experience in the following areas:

Environment: Regulatory advice on licensing/permitting,
contaminated land and air emissions including climate change,
criminal prosecutions, judicial review and/or civil claims.
Experience in energy and infrastructure projects would be helpful.

Safety: Incident response and investigations, defence
of criminal prosecutions, Coroner's Inquests, occupational health,
policies and risk assessments. This will also include product safety
and recall including product labelling and safety requirements.
