A career in our Commercial Law practice, within PwC's Legal Services, will provide you with the opportunity to help clients of all sizes with commercial legal advice. Responsibilities will include drafting contracts and advising on a diverse range of commercial law issues. As our team is also responsible for Intellectual Property, our work might also involve (mostly non-contentious) IP advice; typically this will be drafting IP agreements or analysing IP ownership. As such, familiarity (or preferably good experience) with Intellectual Property advice is also useful.

Working alongside other professionals in PwC, we often advise on large global group reorganisations, helping clients to work out how major operational changes might impact them from a legal perspective, and putting in place new intra-group agreements to reflect these. Or we might have a similar role for a client changing the way it holds and manages its IP. These types of projects give us a great opportunity to see how groups work, where the value is generated and how legal operations affect this.

The ideal candidate will be a Qualified Lawyer, with experience of drafting contracts, giving commercial law advice and advising on non-contentious IP issues.

It is likely that you will have been involved with managing a portfolio of clients and doing some work winning activities.

It would be of particular interest if you have had exposure to intra-group contracting and/or working alongside non-legal professional
