Commercial Lawyer 4+ PQE
Commercial Lawyer Job - Cardiff - Market Leading Firm
Your new role
This top-100 commercial law firm is recognised by clients and industries alike and enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the leading firms in the South Wales market. Due to exponential growth over the last 24 months, they have a truly rare opportunity for a Commercial lawyer to join them in their Cardiff team.
The team deals with a wide range of non-contentious commercial, technology, e-commerce, privacy, consumer, IP, advertising, marketing and media law. This will largely be transactional work with some advisory work too. The Commercial team is growing and this role is to support the growth of its Cardiff office, making this a great time to join them. The team is a fantastic, energetic and sociable group with an extremely impressive and varied client base, predominantly in the retail, technology, advertising and marketing, media, professional services, entertainment and sport sectors. You will work with most of the partners within the team and will be the lead associate on transactions, as well as managing junior and associates trainees working with you.
You will ideally be 4-7 years' PQE with strong technical legal skills, excellent drafting skills and extensive experience of non-contentious commercial contracts, technology e-commerce, and ideally some experience in advertising and marketing contracts, consumer and data law. You should have substantial experience from working in a medium or large private practice law firm or a niche commercial/technology/data practice. You will be expected to contribute to the production of written material such as client guides, client training and to the giving of talks and seminars, so should be very keen to engage in Business Development.
What you will get in return
The firm pride themselves on their willingness and ability to build the experience of the right candidate and will invest in you for the long-term if you have the right attitude and work ethic. This role would suit an ambitious Commercial lawyer currently working in the South Wales market, or perhaps someone who is looking to relocate back to the area, who has strong, all-round experience and plenty of drive and determination to succeed as a key part of an already very successful team. You will have the opportunity to work for one of the most prestigious firms in South Wales, whilst receiving a market leading benefits package; this is a rare and an excellent opportunity not to be missed.
What you need to do now
If you are interested in applying for this position or would like some further details, please contact Harriet Chapman at Hays legal in complete confidence. We would expect a lawyer with the given PQE to have gained the level of experience required, but this does not preclude applications from those with more or less PQE.
