Our client is a rapidly growing management consulting company based in London and with offices in various global locations. As a result of their growth they have a rapidly growing legal estate. As the business continues to expand in terms of size, services and geography, so too does the legal support required.

They now have an opportunity to join their small close-knit legal team in a part-time commercially focussed role.

Reporting at all times to, and liaising with General Counsel, the Legal Counsel will cover the following areas:
-        NDAs –advising and negotiating new NDAs 
-        MSAs/Ts&Cs - assisting the General Counsel and CCO in negotiating new agreements with clients; and reviewing existing MSAs for compliance with policy
-        Supplier agreements – negotiating and advising on supplier agreements (for example, with recruitment agencies, IT service providers)
-        Software Licences – assisting our technology division, ADS, with the negotiation of ASPs with clients, software development agreements with third parties and advising on related matters.

The role is for 3 or 4 days per week and they are flexible whether it is a set 3 days or if those 3 days are spread over the week, and likewise with the 4 day option. The ideal candidate is an experienced commercial lawyer with experience in technology related commercial matters such as SAAS and working with various software licensing. You will have worked in a professional environment and be used to working with multiple stakeholders. Some experience in professional services, consulting, or funds industry would be advantaeous. 

A self starter used to a fast pace of working will thrive in this role. You will have strong communication skills and feel comfortable liaising with non-legal business staff to support their business requirements.

This role can be done from home with the odd day in the London office, approximately 2 days per month. 

Salary up to £80,000 FTE + generous benefits package.
