Client Details

You will be reporting in to the team's Deputy Head of Legal.

The legal function is an integral part of the UK business and they have remained busy throughout the pandemic. None of the team were furloughed and the flow of work has continued to grow. This will be a very busy and challenging role and the team are looking for a confident solicitor who can work independently and give pragmatic commercial advice to the business.

There will be flexibility in terms of remote working for the role. it is likely that post-pandemic there will be a mixture of office and home working.

The team is particularly interested in speaking with solicitors who have developed a broad skill-set either in private practice or in-house, ideally with experience in commercial litigation and potentially as well as general commercial contracts experience.

If you are looking to join a leading in-house function and are looking for a varied and busy role, then please get in touch.
