Consultant Ashley King
Date posted 03 November 2016
A leading provider of voice, network and data centre services is looking to hire a mid-level corporate lawyer to join its high-performing team, based in London's Shoreditch. Reporting to the Legal Director, you will assist with the management of all corporate legal work across the business on a pan-European basis, including (but not limited to) M&A, financings, post-acquisition and integration matters and post-financing compliance obligations.
In a relatively autonomous role, you will be the primary point of contact for many areas of the business in respect of a variety of corporate legal matters.
Notably, you will:
- Act as subject-matter expert on corporate matters across the business
- Provide support on pan-European and international corporate matters
- Provide sound corporate and commercial legal advice on a range of matters, including drafting, reviewing and negotiating corporate and commercial legal agreements, including sale and purchase agreements, ancillary documents, board minutes, corporate NDAs
- Co-ordinate and manage corporate and financing transactions, including managing external counsel
Your key skills:
You are likely to be a corporate lawyer with a minimum of 3 years' PQE gained in a recognised international law firm, or working in a similar role within a blue-chip corporate. Whilst not essential, previous in-house experience is viewed favourably, especially experience gained with the telecommunications industry.
In addition to the technical competencies required, it is imperative that you have a customer-focused approach and the ability to adapt quickly in a rapidly changing environment.
If you are a corporate lawyer looking for a rewarding in-house role within a high-calibre team, please don't hesitate to apply.
