The firm already has established practices in supporting areas, ranging from corporate, IP, regulatory and data protection litigation and is seeking a senior lawyer who enjoys working on a range of commercial contracts work for a wide range of clients – often within the technology, sport/entertainment areas – to cement and grow this practice as the firm continues on its impressive growth path.
There is an excellent marketing/BD team who can support you and a small team in place already.

  • Have excellent commercial contracts experience, with strong drafting skills and adept at analysing a range of commercial contracts;

  • Likely have good experience within the technology sector, ideally with the ability to advise on a range of common tech agreements and with some knowledge of GDPR;
  • Be able to pick up existing client relationships and lead them.

Whilst a following is welcome, it is not essential, but you will be expected to demonstrate how you have developed relationships and would use your business development skills to further grow the practice and raise the profile of the team.
