2+ YEARS’ PQE
GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS PLATFORM
Our client is a leading global communications platform for earned media management and insight provider to PR and marketing communications professionals.
We are working with the GC in the US to find a commercial lawyer with tech experience to join the larger legal team as the first lawyer in London.
You will work closely with sales staff, marketing teams and other business groups within our client’s business and its affiliate companies on contract matters with a predominant focus on Europe.
Essential Skills and Experience:
* 2-5 years PQE with software and services contract drafting and negotiation experience, preferably in the technology field
* Familiarity with software legal/licensing concepts such as intellectual property, limitations of liability, indemnification, etc.
* Familiarity with technology and/or software-as-a-service (SaaS) licensing and data privacy a plus
You must have excellent written and verbal communication skills and strong interpersonal skills. An ability to interact effectively and work diplomatically with individuals at all levels within the organisation is also expected.
You will have a day to day remote working relationship with your legal line manager (the GC) and so must be comfortable with this and have the confidence to work autonomously at times. An ability to prioritise and work to tight deadlines in a service oriented and sales-driven environment goes with the territory.
The company has grown through acquisition so still has a start-up feel to it. You will need to roll your sleeves up and be happy to work in a changing but enjoyable culture where process is still catching up! This is a great opportunity for a confident commercial lawyer to be part of a global business that is the leading player in this space.
