Head of Legal
My client is a Cheshire-based AIM listed success story with double digit growth stretching back over a decade. They have a small, yet influential and integral In-house legal team which is highly regarded throughout the business, both in the UK and across their European partners in Germany, the Netherlands and Czech Republic.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a pragmatic and communicative commercial generalist solicitor to head up this team, reporting to the Chief Finance Officer to help advise in all areas of the business group-wide, enabling them to meet its business objectives and ensuring legal compliance.
On a day to day basis you can expect a varied caseload which may cover legal/commercial, intellectual property, regulatory, clinical, quality, HR and operational matters. In addition, the group has aspirational (but tangible) targets to hit £1b t/o which will also require further acquisitions. As such, those lawyers with any exposure to M+A and wider corporate experience will be especially welcome to apply, however the day to day diet of work will very much focus on company law and the management of the team.
The business operates a true flexibility in terms of working hours, although there is a strong desire to have this person office based at their Cheshire HQ on account of the location of the team.
Salary is likely to be in the region on c£90k+ benefits associated with an AIM listed business.
