Litigation, Counselling/Contracting and Corporate Transactions.

The commercial and corporate teams work across the whole UK business dealing with contracts in all of our lines of services handling a wide range of challenging and significant contracts, acquisitions and alliances. Many of our contracts have an international aspect, and our expertise is also drawn upon by other firms within the PwC network across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It is a multi-disciplinary team comprising 14 lawyers.

For the past 12 months we have been using the services of our client facing lawyers to provide us with a managed legal service, based in Birmingham.

After a very successful 12-months we are now looking to expand that service by recruiting another lawyer (from NQ to 2 PQE).

You will have up to 2 years of experience in providing legal advice, either within an in-house environment or within a law firm ideally working as part of a commercial legal team. You will have excellent communication skills, the ability to build strong relationships and the capability to review legal texts quickly and draw out key points accurately.

The role shall be based out of our Birmingham office.

Due to the ongoing and unpredictable nature of the pandemic, PwC has placed increased emphasis on flexible working. PwC continues to monitor the latest government advice. Currently, whilst our offices remain open it is envisaged that the vast majority of your time will be working from home whilst the present restrictions and advice is in place.

About the role

The roles would be specifically to:

Carry out contract reviews of new client proposed terms and conditions, producing a summary of key points for use by our more senior lawyers or risk management teams both internally to PwC and externally with a client.

Review agreed contracts to produce guidance notes for use by our risk management and engagement teams.

Review global agreements and associated guidance notes to produce UK-specific documentation for use by global account teams.

Perform other similar tasks.

* Provide ad hoc support to our more senior lawyers on particular projects or deals.

Role requirements

The successful candidate will have access to a broad range of training and developmental opportunities available to staff at PwC and will come into a defined career structure. PwC actively encourages the development of its staff and on-going training and development is embedded within the day to day.

* Detailed knowledge of English Law, up to 2 years PQE (or equivalent)

* Worked in-house for a company, or if in a law firm you will have worked with clients in the commercial sectors

* Some knowledge of GDPR would be an advantage

* Ability to gain a full appreciation of the wider reputational, commercial and business aspects of each deal

* Ability to tailor advice to the specific needs of the business and apply common sense and practical solutions

* Ability to adapt, to change and to be open minded and innovative

* Strong drafting skills and the ability to flex communication style to suit a particular situation

* Appetite to learn and develop.

Not the role for you?

Did you know PwC offer flexible contract arrangements as well as contingent work (ie temporary or day rate contracting)?
