The Role

Wiggin’s technology team works for many of the key players across the media and entertainment, betting and gaming, sport, digital media and technology industries, as well as some of the most dynamic, fast-growth entrepreneurial businesses in their fields.  This role would suit someone who is looking for the chance to work closely with these clients on business-critical deals and projects.  Unlike many firms, Wiggin's technology group has the privilege of working with some of the world's highest-profile media and technology businesses, as well as fast-growth companies at the cutting edge of developments in media tech, adtech, computer games, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, cloud services and data, and blockchain, among others.

We now have an opportunity for a mid-level lawyer to work on wide-ranging, high-quality UK and international transactions, projects and advisory work within our ambitious and fast-growing technology group.  This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented lawyer to make their mark in a unique, entrepreneurial environment. You will....

  • Advise on domestic and international technology transactions, ranging from commercial partnering arrangements to all forms of technology, software, content and data acquisition and exploitation.

  • Have plenty of client contact and responsibility for running your own deals.       
  • Benefit from Wiggin's excellent reputation as a leader in media, technology and IP, working with some of the best lawyers within these sectors.      
  • Be part of an innovative, passionate and entrepreneurial team of lawyers.
