The Business

The business is a leading global player in its field and, with a new legal structure now in place, represents a fantastic opportunity for a commercial lawyer seeking to get involved in a variety of legal work as well as offer practical commercial advice. There is a good sized, collaborative team, a strong support network and a Head of Legal keen on personal development.

The Role

Reporting directly to the Head of Legal, the Legal Counsel will be the dedicated legal contact for a key business area within the group. The role will include:

  • Assisting with litigation matters (prior contentious experience would be beneficial but NOT necessary);
  • Providing general legal and commercial advice to the sales and marketing functions as well as key stakeholders;
  • Advising on legal risk and helping appropriate departments manage and reduce any issues; and
