Commercial Associate/Senior Associate

Closing Date

Department

Commercial

Job Location

Thames Valley

Role

Lawyers

Description

"They are consistently impressive and very helpful." –
Chambers & Partners

We are looking for an Associate and a Senior Associate to join our
highly regarded Commercial team in the Thames Valley, focusing on high
value commercial contracts within the TMC and Life Sciences sectors
together with a varied diet of intellectual property, consumer
regulatory, data privacy and advertising law work.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a Chambers and Legal 500
rated team and advise on high value, strategically important and often
international projects within a supportive and collegiate environment.

The practice

Our Commercial group provides leading-edge business solutions to
clients, ranging from high growth start-ups to multinationals and
covering the entire spectrum of commercial activity. Our Thames
Valley team has a strong reputation with large global clients
requiring sophisticated cross-jurisdictional advice.

We have considerable expertise within the Thames Valley office in a
range of key sectors, including healthcare, telecoms and retail and
particularly digital business. We are known for our outstanding
expertise in advising on highly complex commercial contracts across
these sectors.

Our premier client base across the TMC sector, where we enjoy a
fantastic reputation, includes the likes of Microsoft, Vodafone,
Cornerstone, Expedia Vice Media Facebook and Discovery. In the
financial services sector, another field in which we have considerable
strength, our typical work includes advice on complex services
agreements, including agreements for the development of new financial
products and panel arrangements, for clients such as KPMG, Monitise
and Towergate. In particular, we have specialist expertise in “new
generation” payment services, such as mobile payments (including NFC),
online payments, prepaid, virtual currencies and micro-payments.

Each of these two roles will also have a focus on a wide range of
issues. There will be a focus on contracts including international
software licenses and IT implementation agreements, outsourcing
matters and regulatory issues for the Commercial group's technology
clients alongside collaboration agreements, IP licencing agreements
and regulatory advice for clients in the Life Sciences space. Each of
these roles will also provide assistance to the range of advertiser
clients, advertising agencies and AdTech companies for whom we act
within the advertising ecosystem to provide advice on a range of copy
clearance issues, talent agreements, sponsorship and endorsement deals
and contractual arrangements as well as specialist privacy, regulatory
and IP advice on a range of campaign concepts.



The team

"As lawyers I find them straightforward, pragmatic and
enjoyable to work with" – Chambers & Partners

Spanning all three of our UK based offices and working closely
together, the Commercial department is made up of almost 50 lawyers in
total. The Thames Valley Commercial team is currently made up of 1
Partner, 1 Associate Director, 1 Senior Associate, 2 Associates, 1
Trainee Solicitor and a Paralegal and it is actively expanding. The
team is led by Anna Williams, who is recognised in the legal
directories and industry for her focus on advertising and sponsorship
work as well as her focus on digital business clients. Both roles
would involve working on a very regular basis with our Commercial
lawyers in all three offices as well as our international offices.

The work

You will have the opportunity to work on projects in various sectors,
as well as develop your expertise in technology, life sciences, IP and
advertising matters. Examples of recent projects are:

* We continue to advise Vodafone on a range of important matters,
including substantial outsourcing projects.

* Advising KPMG on the negotiation of their strategic alliance
agreement with McLaren to govern both KPMG's corporate sponsorship
of the racing team and both parties' collaboration on data analytics
product development.We are acting for a large insurance group in
connection with the monetisation and exploitation of various IT
assets acquired as a result of rapid growth through M&A activity.

* Advising a well-known brand within the insurance sector on their
digital marketing activities after conducting a detailed compliance
audit into their use of data and AdTech for campaigns forming part
of their varied marketing mix.

* Advising household name retailers on their sales channels
structures (franchises and concessions) and manufacturers on their
routes to market, including agency and distribution agreements,
working alongside colleagues in our European and US offices

Technical skills and experience

You will have a range of commercial law experience gained either at a
city, national or large regional law firm recognised for its
commercial law practice, or in-house. In particular you will have
strong drafting skills, ideally have experience of advising on a range
of commercial contracts, privacy matters and regulatory matters and
pre-existing experience of technology deals or advertising work would
be a bonus. Most of all you must be able to provide concise,
commercial advice to clients whilst really getting to know their
sector as well as their business and be an excellent team player. Due
to the nature of the work and the structure of the team, we are
looking for one Senior Associate and one Associate, although we will
consider candidates with less or more experience.

Your career development

Like all our lawyers, you will benefit from our multi-award winning
career development programme. At each stage of your career this
provides you with:

* clear expectations of your role and what it takes to progress

* high quality clients and work, with early responsibility and
client exposure

* thorough assessment and individual feedback from a range of
experienced colleagues

* robust technical training with early skills based development,
increasingly tailored to you

* reward for your contribution, progression and potential, rather
than PQE or tenure.

Salary and benefits

We offer competitive salaries and generous benefits.
