Contract Type:
Temporary role
Reference Number:


Established legal team seeks in-house counsel for interim role due to an increase in workflow. Based an easy commute from Leeds, this company has a large volume of work being undertaken which has driven an immediate need for a commercial lawyer to join the team, and support on either corporate activity or BAU legal matters.

Working within a small dedicated team there is a wide range of commercial legal work on offer. The remit could include distribution and agency agreements, supply of goods and franchise agreements (international and UK), assisting with any corporate activity, intellectual property issues, marketing and advertising agreements and instructing external counsel.

They are looking for a lawyer with strong commercial contracts experience and track record in a 'business law' environment. You may be from a corporate, commercial, projects or commercial litigation background, but your pqe and specialism is less important that your positive 'can do' attitude and adaptability. The key criteria for this role are to be pragmatic and commercially minded, and to be comfortable in a fast moving and dynamic business. The increase in workload is expected to last a significant time, and they could appoint someone either on an interim basis or a year fixed term contract.

This is an interesting role, involving real interaction with the commercial teams. It is an excellent opportunity to work for an exciting company, and obtain genuine responsibility and fantastic exposure to the business.

The role offers great flexibility and could potentially be undertaken on a part time or split 'work from home' basis
