Corporate Legal Counsel
The in-house legal function at a leading global law firm with offices in Birmingham is seeking a corporate legal professional to help the team manage a broad profile of work but with an emphasis on more corporate aspects.
That work can encapsulate not just advise and support on M&A and disposals within the business group but more broader constitutional and governance aspects on a global basis - it is that aspect that means they need some with clear corporate experience who has a more global sense of the regulatory and compliance and governance aspects.
The role goes beyond that and will encapsulate more general commercial work and providing advice and support in key contracts and tenders. There will also be opportunity to influence and advice the board on expansion and structures to best implement wider growth strategy.
As such you will be working with key stakeholders in the business and so it bears real and significant similarities to a traditional in house role.
. A salary of up to circa £60,000 is on offer.
You will likely come from a corporate background in a law firm or in-house team within a business that has been acquisitive such as to hone ones corporate skill set..
You will have a team of in-house legal specialists around you, and work with a variety of internal departments plus external clients, giving you excellent visibility - it's a rewarding role with a truly international focus, and ultimately sits within the group corporate and compliance in-house legal function.
Although this role is to be based in Birmingham, the firm envisages that a 2 or 3 day split between home and office would work in practice, making this potentially suitable for those who would need to otherwise commute longer distances.
