An exciting opportunity has arisen for a commercial lawyer to join a leading, FTSE 100 listed business based in the West Midlands.

Our client is looking to grow its established legal team based at its West Midlands HQ. As a result of this, our client is searching for an excellent commercial lawyer with between 4-7 years PQE to join them to focus on a wide range of commercial matters.

The work is likely to be extremely varied and will include: supply agreements, outsourcing agreements, tenders and other project related work. The successful lawyer will be part of an established team, working closely with commercial colleagues in providing legal advice to contribute to the success of the business.

The focus of this role is predominately on drafting and negotiating large scale contracts for the business. This will encompass the following:

* Advising and negotiating numerous contracts for the provision of services to numerous large 'blue chip' clients including worldwide group framework contracts. This includes coordinating legal support across various jurisdictions.
* Reviewing and preparing responses to invitations to tender.
* Advising sales teams/operation directors on the tender process for the outsourcing of services.
* Advising and negotiating large scale multi-site outsourcing agreements.
* Advising on TUPE and pensions implications relating to out-sourcing agreements, litigation and tax issues with the support of external counsel if necessary.

This role will suit either a lawyer already working in-house or a lawyer in private practice looking to move in-house for the first time. Commercial contracts experience is desirable, however, we would also be keen to hear from junior lawyers focusing on transactional or non contentious disciplines currently working in leading national law firms.
