Our international client is searching for a Legal Counsel to join their growing software business at their London office. The new Legal Counsel will report directly into the General Counsel in a general commercial contracts position with a slight bias towards software / IP contracts and agreements.

The new Legal Counsel will be primarily responsible for the following, under General Counsel support and supervision:

  • Commercial contracts and agreements, such as software product licence agreements, software development and drafting tender and proposal contracts & agreements;
  • Managing and advising on ad hoc legal queries from across the business, including advising on software licensing issues and general contract terms, intellectual property rights issues, employee and HR issues;
  • Liaising with the compliance team on matters for which they are responsible including relating to company secretarial matters across the group and all regulatory licencing and compliance proceedings.

The ideal candidate will be a confident and capable commercial solicitor with experience of software or IT / technology contracts. The ability to take a view on legal, commercial and technical issues and to work openly & enthusiastically within a busy in-house legal team is important.

The candidate should also be down-to-earth, personable and have good communication skills, and be able to build good rapport with others within the business, including senior management where necessary, as well as colleagues in the legal team.

Our client envisages that candidates with 3+ years PQE will have the relevant skills/knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.

For more information on this unique in-house opportunity please contact Simon Campbell at Newton Shaw. If this position isn't for you but you know someone who could be suitable then please let us know. We offer a reward fee of £250 for any successful referrals.
