Regulatory and Oil and Gas Lawyers
With offices in Calgary, Vancouver and Yellowknife, Lawson Lundell LLP is ranked as western Canada’s top regional law firm. The firm provides business law services emphasizing natural resources and project development to a top-tier national and international client base. We act for some of the country’s largest oil sands developers, oil and gas companies, electrical power developers, mining and forestry companies, industrial and institutional customers, pipelines and utilities. We help our clients address regulatory, environmental and aboriginal issues faced by companies seeking to bring new projects online or looking to deal with existing infrastructure development in western Canada and the three territories. We also assist our oil sands and conventional oil and gas clientele with a range of corporate and commercial transactions.
The high demand for our services means we are looking to hire lawyers who are highly-skilled, motivated and innovative, with an emphasis on lawyers with practices in the regulatory / aboriginal /environmental law area and the oil and gas corporate and commercial law area.
To support our Calgary office’s expanding regulatory practice, we are looking for partner-level (10+ years’ experience) and intermediate-level (4 to 8 years’ experience) lawyers with experience with energy project facilities applications and developments and related matters in the oil sands, gas (including shale gas), oil and electricity areas. Experience dealing with all aspects of regulatory matters before the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board, the Alberta Utilities Commission, the British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission and the National Energy Board is required. The best candidates would also have experience with other provincial and federal regulators relating to projects or rates and tariffs, as well as regulatory and court experience in addressing environmental and aboriginal issues that arise during the facilities approval processes and in regulatory regimes north of 60.
We are also looking for a senior (10+ years’ experience) and an intermediate (4 to 8 years’ experience) oil and gas lawyer to join our team. The candidates will have significant experience in oil and gas commercial transactions and related matters in the following areas: property acquisitions and divestitures, mergers and acquisitions, farmin / farmout arrangements, royalty agreements, facility construction / ownership / operation agreements and gathering / processing / storage / transportation agreements.
We are also seeking an associate (1 to 3 years call) for our Calgary regulatory group. The ideal candidate will have some experience in regulatory or energy work, and possess excellent research and writing skills. The position primarily involves regulatory project work, but there will be opportunities to handle some general litigation files as well.
We are looking for lawyers who will fit in with Lawson Lundell’s collegial environment, and who enjoy providing innovative, sophisticated and business-oriented solutions to our clients. Lawson Lundell’s Calgary office offers lawyers the opportunity to work on high-end regional, national and international files in a boutique setting. Our pro bono policy also encourages and recognizes the efforts of our lawyers to assist individuals and organizations in the community.
