What We're Looking For...
We're looking for a lawyer with 5 to 7 years' PQE, but we're not obsessed by PQE. What's more important is that you have solid experience of drafting, reviewing and advising on a variety of complex and high value contracts, preferably with an international element.
We typically look for those with experience at a highly regarded law firm and experience in-house, either on a client secondment or permanent role. We value our people and culture highly, and so we'll need our candidate to be an outstanding communicator and be great with people. Capable of translating complex legal matters and articulating pros and cons of legal alternatives without losing commercial focus. Able to challenge senior business stakeholders.
