Our client is a fully regulated law firm that provides businesses with high-calibre experienced lawyers on a part-time or flexible basis. By working smarter as part of the client’s business, and by delivering legal advice from a business perspective, we can demonstrably save our clients significant amounts of money and directors’ time.
This provides a cost-effective way of embedding a senior lawyer within the client’s business — at a fraction of the cost of employing a full-time legal resource or engaging with a traditional law firm on an ad hoc basis.
The role is completely flexible and you could work from 3 to 5 days a week, depending on how many hours you want to work, based either from home or from the client offices.
As you would expect in a General Counsel role, you will be managing all client legal queries, from employment issues to contracts and M&A or property as well as disputes. You will be supported by our client's management team and network of lawyers.
Our client is looking for candidates with experience of;
- Commercial or corporate practice experience
- In house Legal Counsel / General Counsel
- Advising SME's
- Well organised and able to manage own workload
