Description

A highly successful business is looking to hire a Commercial Lawyer to join their In-house team.

The successful Legal Counsel will be acting as the primary Commercial Lawyer for the business and the point of contact for commercial matters in the In-house team. It's represents a great stepping stone for a lawyer already In-house, or a lawyer in Practice who has considerable commercial experience.

Reporting to the Head of Legal, there is plenty of scope to develop whilst working autonomously. The role will involve;
- Drafting, negotiating, and reviewing commercial contracts; It contracts, software agreements, NDAs, outsourcing agreements, etc.
- Working closely with, and providing advise to, Marketing, Property, Finance, HR, and IT departments
- Collaborating with the procurement team
- Advising on the early stages of litigation and managing the process externally

Experience in IT contracts is beneficial, but we're really interested in speaking to candidates with broad and wide-ranging commercial experience, with the capability to pick up on larger projects from time to time.
The General Counsel sees this as a great opportunity for someone to develop, and as such it would suit someone around 4-5 years PQE.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
