About the Role;
You will be a key and trusted legal adviser to the company's business leaders in the UK & Ireland region, with the potential to support on international transactions as well. Key responsibilities will include negotiating, drafting and advising on a variety of commercial arrangements, to include services contracts, partnership agreements and cloud contracts as well as providing support to the business in relation to disputed contracts.
The ability to negotiate common issues in complex IT transactions will be key. Examples include distribution agreements, IPR, TUPE/ARD, data protection, security (including cybersecurity) and clauses required by financial service clients around audits and EBA resolutions. Regulatory experience will also be an asset.
You will currently come from a blue chip technology company or from the technology team of a reputable law firm. Perhaps you do not have aspirations for partnership and have enjoyed a secondment which has given you a taste of working in-house. The opportunity to move in-house at a senior level is rare so this a fantastic chance.
You must be able to work autonomously and within a deal team context so you can support the business. You must have a demonstrably strong track record of commercial transactional legal experience in this jurisdiction and across multiple industries, including ideally in the financial services sector and public sector.
