Senior Media and Sports lawyer, Saudi Arabia

CLIENT: Sports and media lawyer roles are extremely rare in the Middle East, and this marks one of those unique opportunities. This client is seeking a senior level lawyer (potentially very senior) who can slot into, and lead a sports and media division of a fast growing Saudi brand with unlimited growth.

ROLE: You'll be driving forward policy, contract negotiations, and supporting the business units with international standard legal advice. It will cover media, IP, sports, regulatory and compliance issues.

CANDIDATE: There are some key criteria to consider:

* You need to have extensive experience in sports and media law, not a bit, lots of it, down to your career roots.
* Ideal candidates will have begun their careers in either a top tier international law firm, or in-house environment.
* Strong preference will be given to those with extensive in-house work.
* Exposure to working at a leading, global sport and or media organisation is perfect - could be an agency, club, league, regulator etc.
* It's likely you'll need at least 10+ PQE of high quality sports and media work, and more (15/20+) would be welcome.

Please do get in touch to discuss this extremely exciting role.
