My client is a well-funded, AIM-listed leading developer of clean energy technology, enabling the world's most progressive companies to develop clean energy at the scale and pace needed to decarbonise power generation, transportation, industry, and everyday living.

The company's growth strategy is driven by licensing their current technology to global OEM partners, as well as refining and adapting their technology for further and future applications. Since IP pervades every aspect of the company with technology at its heart, they require a Senior Counsel with a deep understanding of IP and how it will transpire throughout their agreements.

You will be responsible for drafting, reviewing and leading negotiations on IP and 'Technology' aspects of a wide array of commercial agreements and licenses. You will also support business growth plans via significant transactions, projects and advisory work arising from the exploitation of the research and development, in a fast paced and varied working environment.

You will be required to have at least 5+ PQE as a commercial IP lawyer with a proven track record of leading on or providing significant contribution to the successful completion of numerous transactions or projects. You will have worked in a tech/IP-rich environment and be unafraid, if not excited by technology, innovation and commercialisation.

In what is a highly visionary, entrepreneurial, inclusive and collaborative environment, you will need a 'can do' attitude, be confident in building internal relationships and be led by a desire to want to make a difference in the world.
