Arbuthnot Yon are working with a sizeable blue chip national business which is a leader in its field. The business has experienced a period of growth and an opportunity exists for a lawyer to join as a Senior Legal Counsel on a part-time (ideally 4 day equivalent) basis.  Reporting into the Legal Director you will be responsible for the day to day running of the legal team and management of junior lawyers as well as advising the business in relation to commercial legal matters.  Working closely with business colleagues and the executive team you will be responsible for the following areas:
