Our legal teams make up one of the largest in-house law firms in the Nordic countries. We face a wide range of challenges, in areas spanning from human rights to commercial law.
As a part of the legal and compliance team, you will lead and shape this part of the business alongside a group of highly skilled colleagues across 13 countries. We provide opportunities to take on high-impact cases from early on in your Equinor career. There is also an extensive network of lawyers to collaborate with to ensure high-quality deliveries.
The teams that make up Legal and compliance in Equinor safeguard the company and create business opportunities by providing high quality legal and compliance advice. Each unit is responsible for parts of our activities. Still, there is close collaboration across our teams, as well as with our internal clients.
What makes the role as in-house lawyer unique is the combination of legal excellence and detailed knowledge about the business. The cases we take on are complex and extensive - cases that would often otherwise be partner-driven. As an in-house lawyer in Equinor, you will be a proactive and independent legal advisor and develop a deep understanding of the business. We know that for you to perform at your best, a sound work-life balance is essential. Although no day is the same and the pace is high, we consistently strive to strike that balance.
In addition to the roles we currently have open, we are looking to strengthen the overall capacity of our legal department. If you believe you have what it takes to help us be a driving force in the energy transition, please apply through one of the positions posted.
Get to know your colleagues
In Equinor, I advise on transactions and business development projects within renewable energy and related venture activities. My tasks span from drafting agreements for new industry projects and having a key role in negotiations to providing input on regulatory changes for the industry and participating in Equinor’s management committees. I joined Equinor in 2019 from a position as senior lawyer in a private law firm. I learn something new every day, as I am involved in some of the opportunities the energy transition creates for Equinor. Our legal team plays a crucial role in Equinor’s strategic and commercial decision making.
On a day to day basis, I coordinate all the legal support in connection with the projects ongoing in Brazil.
When I started working as legal counsel in Equinor Brasil in 2012, I provided the legal support required for the activities of our operated asset Peregrino. I have also been involved in a lot of different projects since then, including the acquisition of our participating interest in Bacalhau and Roncador.
It is amazing to see how the business has grown in Brazil and how we, even if we are geographically far away from Norway, work under Equinor’s values and culture. That is very inspiring. What I enjoy the most in being part of the legal team in Equinor is the fact that we work as one team, supporting each other, exchanging experiences and delivering the best of each individual - regardless of the reporting lines.
