Senior Brand Protection Lawyer – London

Senior Brand Protection Lawyer – London

8 months fixed term role

We are looking for an experienced (ideally 7+ PQE) lawyer with strong experience of brand protection and anti-counterfeiting law to support one of our major international clients.  Working for Ortolan Legal, but embedded with our client’s business in London, this is a rare opportunity to lead a small specialist team with a high quality and interesting workload.

Our client is a major international business with a large number of well known FMCG brands.  In this position you will provide expert support to local market brand protection teams and lead the global team.

Ortolan Legal is a very different law firm.  We provide our clients with ‘virtual’ legal support and this is delivered exclusively by experienced solicitors.  We aim to give highly commercial and technically strong advice and we do this at a cost which compares extremely favourably with other, more conventional legal practices.  Based in England and SRA authorised and registered, from a standing start in late 2009 we have grown strongly and our client base includes businesses ranging from FTSE 100 household names and multinational manufacturers to proprietor managed companies in sectors as diverse as rail, logistics, manufacturing and high tech.

Our lawyers are supported by all the technology and resources they need to provide an excellent service.  We are collegiate in the way we manage our business and we aim to put everyone in a position not only to achieve a great deal of job satisfaction, but also to really enjoy working with us.

We are looking for a qualified lawyer in the UK or another comparable jurisdiction.  A strong technical legal background is a given and this is likely to have been gained with a leading practice and in-house as part of a brand protection or anti-counterfeiting team in a multi-national business.  Candidates with less than 7 years PQE are unlikely to have acquired the experience needed, but if you are exceptional, please convince us!  For this project you will be working alongside our client’s established legal team.  You will find yourself working closely with the business as well as with colleagues in the large in-house legal function. 

Equally importantly, you will need to be a good fit; so as well as being charismatic and personable, you will also be highly motivated, client focused and will have a demonstrably commercial approach with plenty of initiative.

The position is open now and we are keen to identify the right person and get them in place as soon as possible.  So if this resonates with you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. 

If you would like to know more, please send your CV in confidence to Nick Benson at nbenson@ortolan.com.  We will respond to every applicant.
