Our client is looking for a Legal Counsel / Commercial Contracts Lawyer to join their busy and growing in-house legal department. This is a varied and interesting role involving drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements.

Based in Reading the ideal candidate will:

  • Be a UK qualified solicitor with strong academics
  • Have a strong grounding in drafting and negotiating commercial contracts
  • Ideally have had some exposure to dealing with a regulated marketplace
  • Have preferably had experience of advising on other legal areas such as contentious matters / disputes, property law or competition law
  • Be able to assist and help the business on a wide range of other projects and legal matters
  • Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commercial / business outlook to their work

In-house experience would be desirable, but the client would consider a private practice lawyer looking to move in-house who could point to good business and commercial skills.

Our client envisages that candidates with between 1 - 4 years PQE will have the relevant skills / knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.
