Our client, an established, well respected commercial West End practice is seeking to expand the commercial team with an experienced commercial solicitor (circa 6PQE+).
TEAM & ROLE
The Commercial TEAM is at the heart of the firm's business, and contracts are at the root of their work in this area.
The TEAM are experts in drafting, advising on and, if necessary, litigating commercial contracts of all kinds.
They have a wide range of experience in all commercial contracts, but have a particular expertise in advising on contracts for the acquisition, protection and exploitation of rights.
The TEAM lawyers combine a sound grasp of the technicalities of contract law, intellectual property and finance with a deep understanding of business. With this knowledge, they bring great value to clients by helping them shape, structure and lead commercial deals.
Some of our main areas of advice: supply of goods; supply of services; distribution; agency; franchising; trade finance; intellectual property; copyright; trade marks; data protection; licensing; e-commerce; sponsorship; and IT and software.
The role will focus on work in the advertising sector; however, all solicitors are expected to work across a range of industry sectors and for a variety of different types of client (including corporates, entertainers, entrepreneurs, producers and high-profile executives).
YOU will have a flexible and commercial approach.
YOU will have excellent drafting skills.
YOU may have gained such skills by working in private practice or in-house but will be required to demonstrate that YOU have experience in drafting complex commercial documentation, including service agreements, procurement agreements, IP licences and other general commercial agreements.
YOU will have an eye for detail and a pragmatic approach to problem-solving.
YOU will be able to advise clients directly on the terms of agreements and to engage independently in complex negotiations.
YOU will therefore demonstrate experience in handling clients and an ability to run negotiations on a range of commercial agreements.
In terms of legal expertise, YOU will be expected to have a good understanding of, and experience in advising on, data protection, IP rights and contract law (including issues of interpretation and termination).
An understanding of specific entertainment or advertising industry documentation would be useful, but is not essential.
*You will be circa 6PQE+;
*This role would suit you if you are a successful highly motivated individual from an established commercial private practice or even in an in-house team with the ability to work unsupervised.
*You will have broad commercial / IP / IT experience.
*You will have strong interpersonal skills, excellent organisational, analytical, drafting and communication skills, and be used to delivering a high quality service.
*Knowledge of the local market and contacts would be beneficial. Any additional business, clients & contacts you bring will be of interest.
Excellent remuneration package on offer for the right individual.
If you would like to speak with our retained Consultant Andrew Nelson in respect of this position or similar vacancies, or if you would like a discussion about your career or the market in general please do call us in the strictest confidence
