Senior Legal Counsel, Global Business
About the Company
This international defence and technology company provides defence systems for every branch of the armed forces.
The business now has an opportunity for a Senior Legal Adviser to join the business and play a key role in leading on complex contractual negotiations, advising on risk and ensuring the assets of the business (IP and otherwise) are protected.
As part of a small but highly integrated legal team in a complex industry, the role will be varied and will cover not just commercial contracts but IP, regulatory matters, technology related contracts, manufacturing (particularly of highly complex equipment) as well as specific defence industry matters.
As a senior member of the legal team, you will work closely with the business as well as having the opportunity to mentor other team members. You will work closely with the UK business and the wider European business, advising on day to day matters as well as running training for the business.
This opportunity will be best suit a lawyer with strong commercial awareness, who is comfortable working directly with the business and who can manage a wide range of legal matters. Ideally, you will have a broad general commercial or corporate skill-set, or perhaps a projects, construction or heavy industry background. Experience in the defence sector would be beneficial but is not essential; manufacturing or technology experience would certainly be of interest. The ability to navigate legal matters for a complex industry on a global basis is key.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a leading defence business in a key role for the European legal team.
