- Working closely with the Growth team to draft and negotiate technology contracts for both UK and European-based clients
- Involvement in advising on a broad range of other agreements across away from the purely tech-related matters
- Acting as a key partner to the Strategy & Expansion team as they work on a number of exciting to projects that are driving the company’s success
- Providing commercially-focused legal advice on a range of other topics including IP, data privacy and real estate
The client has suggested that at least 3 years’ PQE will be required to undertake the role but applications from all levels will be considered on merit. It is essential that you have previous experience of drafting technology contracts, ideally from the in-house side of the fence but those coming straight from private practice will also be considered.
