Our client is a leading law firm led by well-regarded partners and a diverse client base. Due to increased workloads, they are looking to hire a Senior Solicitor level lawyer who has corporate/commercial legal experience with ideally some exposure to technology, media, telecommunications, data privacy and intellectual property law.

You will have the chance to work closely with the partner on advising large companies, growing businesses, and government organisations on matters pertaining to commercial contracts, privacy clauses, digital content distribution, licensing requirements and outsourcing arrangements. You will be able to work independently but have the support of an approachable partner who can be a good mentor on more complex matters and that will invest in your professional development. This a rare opportunity to work in a growing area that is continually changing as technology evolves. The firm itself has a modern working environment, plenty of training opportunities across the wider team and good collaboration.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 4+ years PQE at a reputable law firm;
  • Some exposure or experience in TMT and/or IP. If you have a strong interest in the tech law field with good corporate experience then you will be of interest also;
  • Good contract drafting skills;
  • Solid grades (B average or higher in your LLB).

You may be looking to return from overseas and join a reputable practice or you are keen to work in a commercial team that has blue-chip clients in this area where you can learn from an expert in the field.
