My client is national business and a leader in its field. With a turnover of over £110m serving over 1 million customers every year, the business is now looking to appoint it's first in-house lawyer. We are keen to hear from commercial lawyers with at least 5 years PQE who are looking to join a business and undertake a commercially focused varied in-house role.

A new opportunity has been created for a lawyer to join this national business reporting into the Managing Director and working alongside the leadership team advising the business in relation to commercial legal risk. The role of the Legal Counsel is to ensure that high quality and pragmatic legal advice is provided to the Board of Directors, Management and all units of the UK companies of the group. This is likely to cover areas such as:

Commercial Legal Advice: Advising on a range of commercial and contractual issues. This will include reviewing and advising senior and operational management in relation to large scale and complex contracts. Attending meetings with key customers to assist and advice on and negotiate terms and conditions. In addition, you will also provide legal advice in relation to ad-hoc legal issues such as proposed deals, marketing/communications materials, product documentation and facilities and any litigation that may arise (with the assistance from external legal advice if necessary).

Compliance: Working closely with the board ensuring the implementation of compliance standards and policies in the group including corporate governance, anti-bribery, privacy & data protection and HR compliance.

This is an opportunity that offers an ability to work closely with a business and create a legal function whilst undertaking a varied and hands-on role. With this comes the need for a highly commercial and down to earth lawyer to assist the company with its commercial endeavours.

It is envisaged that the successful candidate will have a strong commercial law background with at least 5 years PQE gained in-house or in a commercial law firm.
