Your main focus will be to provide legal advice and support to Topsoe’s Power-to-X and play a key role as a sparring partner in order to commercialize our green solutions.

Your primary work will be with international contracts for supply and services of our Power-to-X solutions, so experience with FIDIC or similar types of contracts is an advantage. You will also be working with contracts to secure our supply chain.

You will also be working on a wide range of other tasks within our legal area such as partnership agreement, collaboration agreements, financial and strategic investments as well as joint development agreements.

Global Legal is an international team of fourteen lawyers located in Denmark, USA, and China. Global Legal is part of Global Legal Affairs also including Topsoe’s departments for Corp. Compliance & Governance and Intellectual Property.

What you’ll bring
You hold a MA Law degree, cand. merc. (jur.) or similar and have experience from an international law firm. In-house experience within green energy is an advantage. Excellent English communication skills, both verbally and in writing is required.

You thrive in a dynamic and international working environment, where you will work closely with the business on complex projects identifying risks and devising practical, business-oriented solutions to mitigate such risks.

It is expected that you are comfortable in presenting and explaining complex issues in a clear and concise way to colleagues throughout the business.

Why join us
By joining Topsoe’s legal team, you have a chance contributing to creating a greener future and making a positive impact on the environment. You become part of a purpose-driven company that values environmental responsibility and makes a difference in the world.
