Full time

Our client is a fast paced and fast growing business with an established legal function that is key to the business. They are looking to hire a commercial lawyer to undertake a key legal role supporting the business on its next stage of growth.

The role will have a commercial contracts slant to it, reviewing and negotiate all commercial agreements entered into by the company (from supplier and IT agreements, sale agreements, heads of terms and letters of intent and acquisition agreements), and in common with many in house commercial roles of this nature there are also elements of data protection, trademarks, employment, and whatever crosses the desk.

Given the industry sector you would also advise on legislation and regulation, and assist the compliance department interpreting issues concerning the FCA, manage the external law firms and budget, and maintain close contact with the risk, compliance, audit, operations and IT functions.

To succeed in this role you will be a commercial lawyer with a strong track record, gained in house or at a recognised commercial law firm, and probably with a minimum of 6 years pqe. You will be comfortable in a stand alone role taking on responsibility and able to offer creative legal solutions. Experience of working within a regulated industry would be helpful, and equally some management experience would be useful, though is not essential. What is essential is that you are a skilled commercial lawyer with a pragmatic and commercial outlook, a can-do attitude and are keen to help drive the growth of a business.

This is a fine opportunity to take on a responsible in house legal role and play a key part in the development of the business.



Please only apply for this opportunity if you have the requisite skills and experience.
If you would like any further information please contact BCL Legal.
