Our client is an acquisitive and expanding technology company offering a converged platform of IT, Cloud Telecoms services. The business has grown organically and via acquisition, and culturally it is innovative, entrepreneurial and fast paced.

Role - Senior Legal Counsel

To support the Legal Director and commercial stakeholders, our client has a need for an experienced Commercial / IT Solicitor to join the company as Senior Legal Counsel.
