Your new company

My client, a telecommunications company that serves nearly 5 million customers, has over 13,000 employees worldwide and a presence in over 10 countries.

Your new role

This world-class organisation is looking for a Legal Counsel (Litigation) to join a highly regarded in-house legal team on an interim basis. Reporting to the Legal Director, you will provide commercially focused legal advice on all litigation issues including high profile commercial litigation and will negotiate across the business. You will build relationships with internal stakeholders at all levels and will liaise with the General Counsel, showing credibility at senior levels. Bringing a can-do, pragmatic approach, you will handle a range of litigation matters including contractual and corporate disputes and other contentious ISP related issues. In addition, you will identify areas of risk in relation to litigation matters and assist in providing solutions to manage these risks, making this a very varied role.

What you'll need to succeed

You will be a UK qualified lawyer with solid commercial and media litigation experience ideally from an in-house and private practice environment. You will need to be comfortable working autonomously but with excellent communication skills to be able to build effective relationships across the business. This role would suit a proactive person who is commercially astute and is able to provide commercial solutions to clients and colleagues, acting as a business adviser. You will be available on short notice and will be able to hit the ground running. You must have full and inhibited right to work in the UK.

What you'll get in return

You will gain valuable exposure to a world-class organisation and will have the opportunity to build relationships with stakeholders across the business including with the General Counsel and Legal Director. You will be remunerated with a very competitive day rate.
