An instantly recognisable and household favourite brand is seeking to recruit a commercial lawyer to join its team as Legal Counsel at their Head Office in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
This business is incredibly popular due to its strong advertising and recognition for quality across its product range. It is undergoing a period of targeted growth in the market and the Head of Legal is keen to strengthen the legal team and offer the successful applicant a key role with strong opportunities for growth in a fast-paced, rewarding sector.
The legal team is a tight-knit function and, like the rest of the business, operates with an agile, family feel despite its reputation and longevity in the market.

- Negotiating, drafting and reviewing a wide variety of commercial contracts;
- Intellectual Property matters;
- Supporting marketing activities, working with the Head of Regulatory Affairs to advise on content and copy relating to promotions, packaging and social media;
- Advising on anti-bribery, competition law and customer relations issues, as well as providing advice and training to the wider business.
You will be NQ - 5 PQE commercial lawyer with a keen interest in working in-house and a solid commercial contracts background. Knowledge of, or interest in, marketing and advertising law would also be beneficial.
This Legal Counsel role would also be open to commercial litigation or corporate lawyers seeking to take on a more general commercial role.
A genuine interest in the FMCG sector and the ability to provide concise, sound advice to key stakeholders is important.
This is a well-regarded business with an agile legal function and the package on offer is highly competitive.
