Our client is a nationwide company offering an exciting opportunity for a Legal Counsel to join their highly regarded legal team based in London. This is a 6 month fixed term contract but there is the possibility this could be extended to a year. Successful candidates will have an in depth knowledge of drafting, negotiating and reviewing a wide range of commercial contracts.
Additionally, our client also envisages the ideal candidate will have sound understanding and experience in Intellectual Property (IP), Data Protection (DP), and some exposure to consumer law would be of interest.
Ideally candidates will have gained experience in-house but private practice candidates with a strong IP background who have had a secondment in-house would be of interest too.
Our client envisages that candidates who are NQ-4 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 great in-house opportunity please contact Ellie Welsh 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. For full details please see our website.
