Our client is a leading technology company, based in Gloucestershire, that has expanded their business both organically and through acquisitions in recent years.

- Providing a balanced and robust commercial approach to negotiations.

A lawyer with a minimum of four years PQE is sought to provide additional support to the business and to facilitate succession planning within the legal team. There is the opportunity for this individual to take on greater responsibility and as such, applicants with greater post-qualification experience will be considered.

We are keen to hear from individuals with strong commercial and IT contracts experience. This opportunity would be suited to a lawyer who is currently working in-house or in private practice and looking for a varied role in a commercial environment.
