Our client is a leading diversified manufacturing consortium in the Middle East with substantial business across the Gulf region (and internationally) and a large legal team supporting them. Due to continued workload, they are looking to hire a Legal Counsel with 7-10 years' experience of commercial contract law, ideally with some exposure to manufacturing/engineering/heavy industry.

Candidates will be experienced commercial contract/corporate lawyers and able to work on a range of legal matters affecting the business. Specifically, you will be responsible for:

  • Transaction support on procurement, major sales, credit agreements, insurance and other contract drafting and reviewing
  • Legal regulatory advice and preventive monitoring of changes in legislation
  • Litigation cases
  • Intellectual property issues
  • Commercial and regulatory negotiations

To be considered for this role you will have:

  • A law degree from a recognised (preferably international) university;
  • Admission to a recognised bar or professional legal body;
  • 7-10 years' experience in a law firm and/or in-house with a focus on transactional commercial law
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Strong and demonstrable experience in negotiating legal and commercial issues
  • The ability to operate autonomously and as part of a team with little or no supervision in English

Our client is particularly interested in speaking with candidates who have Shipping/Logistics-related experience; both contentious and non-contentious.

A background of working in Saudi Arabia/the wider Middle East reason is not essential but would be highly regarded.
This is an outstanding opportunity to develop your career in the Middle East with one of the major players.
