A hugely successful global sports and entertainment agency is currently searching for a commercial lawyer. The role will suit someone looking for a highly visible, extremely varied role in a legal team operating at the heart of the business.  

Areas of responsibility include, but are not limited to: drafting, negotiating and managing a variety of commercial agreements including those relating to rights sales, event production, sponsorship activation, and talent management (amongst many others); responding to ad-hoc legal queries across the business; engaging external lawyers when required; and assisting in ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation, including GDPR – to name just a few.

Much more information will be made available upon request by suitable candidates.

The successful candidate will have c.0-2yrs PQE* at a well-established law firm or in-house, with commercial drafting experience (with some focus on sports/media/entertainment desirable, but not essential); and knowledge beyond commercial law (such as Data Protection, Corporate and/or Employment) would also be useful. You should be commercially aware with an ability to apply the law to real-world business problems; and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, managing multiple projects and priorities.

*NB: PQE levels are offered as a guide only. Our client will accept applications from all candidates who can demonstrate the skills necessary for the role.

Interested candidates should send their CV to Nick Wasserman for consideration. All successful candidates will be contacted within 5 working days of application. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, though, we are not always able to respond directly to everyone, but we will try our very best.
