In-House Commercial Lawyer, Glasgow

Are you a commercial solicitor or legal executive interested in a move in-house? Or are you already in-house legal counsel and considering a move? Why not consider joining us at Search Consultancy in Glasgow?

Who are we?

Established in 1987, Search Consultancy has grown to become one of the UK's leading recruitment consultancies. With offices in 13 locations across the country, we place people at all levels across a wide range of commercial and industry sectors, including legal, human resources, accountancy and finance. Employing over 650 staff, we hold Investors in People Platinum status.

Based in Glasgow, our dedicated and busy in-house legal team supports all areas of Search's business throughout the UK. Your main areas of focus will include:

* Taking instruction direct from operations and Search stakeholders, drafting, reviewing, negotiating and implementing client contracts; including extensive advice on contract law and contract terms, amending contracts and negotiating terms directly with clients.

* Advising senior management on and handling non-litigated and litigated contractual and fee disputes; including assessing prospects, instructing and liaising directly with external counsel and entering into settlement negotiations where appropriate.

* Other ad hoc legal matters, including restrictive covenant advice, corporate transactions, registering trademarks, Companies House administration, advising on data protection legislation requirements and handling Subject Access Requests and advising on the applicability of emerging relevant legislation/case law.

* You may also be responsible for directing and supervising a legal assistant.

Reporting to Search's director of legal services, you will be enthusiastic, ambitious and adaptable. This is an opportunity to make a role your own in a challenging, fast paced environment, where no two days are ever the same. You will have a very commercial mind set, with the ability to work autonomously, under pressure, to manage and adjust workload to prioritise urgent matters and meet required timescales.

You will have excellent drafting and written/verbal communication skills and a flair for attention to detail. Candidates must have commercial contracts experience, and should have 2 years+ PQE. Candidates with less post qualified experience but who have had access to good quality commercial contracts work, during your training contract, or on secondment to an external client, are also encouraged to apply.

For further details and a confidential chat about the role please contact our exclusive consultant Adam Zdravkovic in the specialist legal recruitment division in our Manchester office. All direct and third party applications will be forwarded to Adam Zdravkovic.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
