Commercial Legal Counsel – 6 months – London – up to £650/day
Our client is a leading financial institution based in London. With the Brexit implementation period fast approaching, the legal team are eager to hire a junior/mid-level lawyer to join on an initial 6 month contract, although there is scope for this to be extended further. Although not the largest legal team, it has a very collaborative culture and the ideal candidate will be looking to up-skill and gain exposure to a financial regulatory environment. You will be expected to assist the team with a variety of BAU work, primarily helping to draft and negotiate a plethora of technology and commercial agreements, including general commercial and technology agreements, as well as providing adhoc financial services regulatory advice alongside the more senior and established lawyers.
The candidate must be between 2-8PQE, UK qualified and will have received top city law firm training. Excellent drafting and negotiating skills are a must. Financial services experience is desirable, but they will consider lawyers from other sectors. Given the urgency of the role, you must be available to start within 2-4 weeks.
