Our client, a vibrant commercial eCommerce organisation operating in a rapidly changing environment in over 15 countries is looking for a Legal Counsel/Commercial Lawyer to join their expanding organisation. The role is based in London. The ideal candidate will be a dual UK and French qualified Laywer with experience in this industry working over the UK and France.

This is a very broad commercial role involving reviewing, drafting and negotiating a range of different commercial agreements. Experience in data protection, intellectual property and information technology is preferable. It's an opportunity to come in and handle some high quality and interesting work.

Reporting to the General Counsel, this role has a broad remit advising on commercial and corporate legal issues, including commercial contracts, IP, technology (IT) and data protection (DP) issues, as well as the opportunity to get involved with corporate and company secretarial and other legal matters.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting on matters of general corporate law, corporate structure and governance;

This is a good opportunity for a candidate to push their career forward in a busy in-house legal department. You will in return be mentored, developed and provided with the opportunity to broaden your commercial legal skills.

Our client envisages that candidates with 3+ years PQE plus 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.
