A leading global manufacturer which works with high profile brands is seeking a 6+ PQE Commercial Lawyer to join their growing EMEA Legal team as Senior Counsel.

The business is based in Bedfordshire but they are open to candidates working 3/4 days from home post-pandemic.

The Business

The business is the largest global manufacturer of its type, working with high profile consumer goods brands. The business is currently going through further growth and the skilled, agile legal team plays a key function in driving the superb year-on-year business growth in the region which has been buoyed by the environmental sustainability of their products. As such they are looking to further expand their legal team with an additional Senior Counsel.

With sites across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, this is an opportunity to join a major business in a truly global role.

The Role

Reporting into the Head of Legal, the Senior Counsel will take on a typically varied in-house workload, including but not limited to:

- Negotiating, drafting and amending a variety of commercial contracts with well-known brands as well as key suppliers of equipment and materials;
- Compliance and Regulatory advice to key stakeholders;
- Supporting with the management of the Legal Counsel;
- Advising on Anti-Bribery and Anti-Competition matters; and
- Working with external counsel on contentious issues.

The legal team is highly regarded within the business and provides key advice to major stakeholders, as well as ad hoc legal input to the wider business on projects and training.

It is a highly collaborative atmosphere with a good work/life balance on offer. There is also a great deal of opportunity for international travel for those who want it.

The Person

The successful Senior Counsel will have strong experience of negotiating and drafting commercial contracts in an in-house setting. A good level of commercial acumen and the ability to advise senior stakeholders is important. No previous experience in Competition Law is necessary but an interest in developing in this area would be beneficial.

On offer is a strong basic salary, consistently-performing bonus and good benefits, as well as the opportunity to be flexible in start- and finish-times.
