There will also be involvement in future strategic expansion of the Firm.
You will have significant experience as In House Counsel specialising in risk and compliance issues in a law firm with offices outside of the UK (it is not necessary to have experience in each of the jurisdictions in which the Firm currently operates, although experience in more than one such jurisdiction would be an advantage).
