The firm offers excellent prospects for progression and our culture provides all our people with world-class support to achieve their ambitions and goals.
Bird & Bird is committed to maintaining an inclusive work environment and we are an equal opportunities employer. We support an agile working environment and are happy to discuss flexible working.
Opportunities have arisen for bright, entrepreneurial and ambitious associates to join our internationally recognised media, entertainment and sport team (MES). Comprising around thirty lawyers in London and over one hundred internationally, Bird & Bird's MES team is led by an energetic group of partners with the ambition of being the advisers of choice for the world's leading media, entertainment and sports organisations.
Successful individuals will play important roles in helping to grow the UK and international MES business and delivering the sector strategy, working with a number of partners and other associates from across the MES sector group. The roles are based in the firm's London commercial team (which itself has over one hundred lawyers). Day-to-day focus will be on commercial media work, which will sometimes have a regulatory aspect. Successful candidates will also have the opportunity – and will be expected – to work across a wide range of transactions and projects, collaborating with other specialists as necessary.
We want to meet candidates who have a genuine passion for the sector, are self-starters and who have real interest in developing the firm's client offering.
We're proud of our MES group’s breadth of legal and industry expertise, insight and passion. Coupled with a fantastic heritage and leading position in technology, communications and intellectual property, we're ideally placed to partner with our clients as they navigate the dynamic and fast-changing landscape of the MES sector.
