IN-HOUSE COMMERCIAL COUNSEL
PREMIUM BRAND FMCG
c.1-3 YEARS' PQE
WEST LONDON & WFH HYBRID
Our client is a listed retail company. Since listing, the company has grown exponentially in value and its premium brand, originally British, is much-loved, respected and enjoyed globally. With quality output as its foremost aim, the scale and complexity of the business are growing: we are now looking for an additional lawyer to join the stellar and close-knit legal team.
Reporting to the Head of Legal & Company Secretary, you will have a broad commercial contracts remit with an increasingly international scope: the business currently has a market leading presence in over 70 countries worldwide.
Amongst other matters, the remit will include:
* commercial contracting (eg. supply, distribution, agency);
* strategic initiatives across the business;
* advising on marketing, live events, sponsorship, e-commerce and branding matters; and
* supporting the running of the IP portfolio and ESG initiatives.
We are looking for a bright, enthusiastic and business friendly lawyer, a self-starter who despite being relatively junior, is ready to make an impact and mix with the best! You should have robust private practice training and some in-house experience (eg. via a client secondment) will be very useful. In every case you must have some demonstrable commercial contracts experience and be a keen learner across new areas.
Unlike in larger, more staid organisations, you will enjoy the scale, security and opportunities offered by a listed company, while thriving on its start-up energy and sharing the excitement of its growth and ambitious prospects. Great quality work and a fantastic work/life balance are on offer, so if you are interested to know more please get in touch ASAP!
