This individual will be responsible for the contracting process from template creation through deal-closing. They will be required to liase with internal Statkraft stakeholders (eg. Risk, Compliance, Credit, and Treasury) to solicit and properly incorporate feedback into active contracts. This role is also expected to collaboratively engage with the US commercial team (Portfolio Management, Origination, Trading) to analyze, discuss and manage various risk exposures on active contracts. Counsel is also expected to manage a variety of related legal processes, such as regulatory filings and attestations.
