An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Head of Commercial Contracts and Property Lawyer to join a large local authority in the Northern Home Counties. The contract is expected to last at least 6-9 months with a high possibility of further extension.

As the senior point of contact for commercial advice, the role will also include managing the principal solicitors of both the contracts and property teams. The team's remit is to provide legal support to departments when making high risk and critical decisions of a commercial nature, including procurement, contract management, partnership working or generating income streams.
