Lead Litigation Lawyer, Consumer Brand, 5+
About the Company
Does your interest lie in working with a strong consumer brand? Or perhaps you’d like to utilise your litigation background in-house? Would you like to work closely with the business? This leading retail company with a strong consumer presence around the UK and internationally is constantly evolving and has a need for additional legal support for its litigation team.
The role is the lead litigation lawyer for the business and provides key legal support to the overall business on day to day and strategic litigation matters, often quite general litigation (commercial contracts disputes, supplier disputes) but also more specific matters including health and safety; environmental and regulatory matters. You will also provide support on large ongoing more complex disputes and investigations, with the support and leadership of the more senior lawyers in the team, ensuring the litigation team provides the business with the support it needs.
To be successful in this role, a strong commercial litigation background is essential. Fundamental is an ability to provide strong technical support yet work closely with the business, advising in a non-legal way, as well as the ability to lead a team. Ideally, you will have trained and qualified with a leading litigation practice and you must have a broad commercial litigation background. In-house litigation experience would be highly regarded. Excellent interpersonal skills and e ability to operate in a commercial way is key. This is an excellent and very rare in-house opportunity for a litigator to move into a key role in the leading legal team of this FTSE 100 company.
