A well-known, popular household brand in the retail sector is seeking a c. 5 PQE Commercial Lawyer to join the team as Legal Counsel at their Head Office in Milton Keynes. The business has undergone a significant makeover and is now looking to expand its tight-knit, experienced legal team as they seek targeted growth in the sector.
The Legal Counsel will report to the Head of Legal and work closely with all areas of the business, providing both legal and commercial advice to the various teams including regulatory, marketing and sales. Over the past 6 months Legal has become an increasingly important cog in the business due to the changes and growth plans, so the role will be highly collaborative and fast-paced due to the challenging yet exciting sector.
The key element to this Legal Counsel position will be negotiating, drafting and reviewing high value commercial contracts, but there is also the opportunity to get involved in advertising matters, IP, regulatory, contentious work, data protection matters and competition law.
You will be a c. 5 PQE commercial lawyer (although there is flexibility on this) who is seeking a fast-paced, dynamic working environment which will allow you to have a key impact on the future success of a major retailer. Experience in retail would be advantageous but not necessary, but you must possess strong commercial contracts skills and be able to work autonomously. Stakeholder management is also a key part, as is the confidence and ability to provide quick, succinct legal advice to key management.
This is a superb opportunity to be a key part in a major growth plan with a well-publicised name, offering fantastic opportunities for growth and development working alongside a highly experienced Head of Legal and Board.
