Our client is a growing force in UK's IT / Cloud industry and are looking for a Legal Counsel / Commercial IT Lawyer to join their busy and growing in-house legal department. This is an intriguing opportunity for someone who wants to develop and progress their skills in drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements. You'll be part of the Commercial & Legal team working with the Head of Legal, commercial managers and across all areas of the business.

Based in Hammersmith, the ideal candidate will:

  • Be a UK qualified solicitor with at least 2+ years PQE
  • Have a strong grounding in drafting and negotiating commercial contracts including IT / technology contracts (such as software development and licence agreements), confidentiality agreements and service agreements
  • Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commercial / business outlook to their work

The successful candidate must be able to point to strong communication skills and good business and commerciality skills. You will have a strong knowledge of IT contracts such as SaaS and software.

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 2+ 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.

QED
An acronym of the latin phrase quod erat demonstrandum which translates as "thus it is demonstrated" or "that which was to be demonstrated". It is most often used as an annotation at the end of a complex mathematical, scientific or philosophical argument to show that the author had proven what he had set out to prove. In recent times it has also been translated as "Quite Easily Done".
