Commercial Counsel and DPO – Highly Regarded Law Firm

We are delighted to be working with a highly regarded full-service law firm to find a senior lawyer for the role of Commercial Counsel and DPO.

Our client is a smart, forward-thinking and friendly employer that has grown significantly in the last 10 years to become one of the UK’s Top 50 firms. It has been listed in The Times Best Law Firms and is consistently ranked in the top tier of the legal sector guides.  The firm is proud to serve leading household names, large business, public bodies and private individuals.  It offers its staff a warm and respectful working environment and understanding culture. 

As the firm grows the internal team is expanding to meet the demands of the business. We are seeking a senior lawyer with commercial contracts and data protection experience to work alongside the COO and Head of Risk and Compliance. The role will require the individual to negotiate and draft the firm’s internal procurement and commercial contracts, manage a contracts database and oversee third party contractual relationships.  With respect to data protection the postholder will be the firm’s DPO.  They must create, oversee and enforce a framework of policies and procedures to ensure compliance with all data protection laws, manage day-to-day DSARS and FOI requests, respond to any breaches, provide training to the business and undertake external liaison with bodies such as the IOC.

This role is an important hire for the firm and will provide strength and guidance to the internal team. We are seeking a lawyer with at least 7+ years of experience as a commercial lawyer with experience of data protection.  Ideally you will be a qualified solicitor or barrister and have some UK or European data protection qualifications. A track record as a DPO in another organisation would be advantageous.  A good grasp of IT systems and data security is also highly desirable. Knowledge and experience of law firm regulation and compliance will be an added advantage, but is not a prerequisite to be considered for this opportunity.

If you are seeking a fresh challenge in a role where you will have a high level of responsibility and access to the organisation’s leadership this could be the role for you.  Please get in touch with Michelle Corneby at Cyan Partners to find out more.
