What you'll do:

As a Legal Counsel, you will play a crucial role within our client's established and friendly in-house legal team. You will be responsible for managing commercial work, including complex drafting and negotiation with external suppliers and clients.

Your role will also involve ensuring regulatory compliance in key areas, fostering a culture of trust with both internal and external clients.
