LEADING FMCG COMPANY- LONDON
An exciting opportunity exists for a Legal Counsel to join a fast-paced, global food and retail group who are currently expanding their EMEA legal team.
About the role;
Reporting to the Associate General Counsel, you will be responsible for drafting and negotiating a full range of commercial agreements (both business and more strategic), including purchase agreements, distribution agreements, as well as marketing agreements. You will also advise on IP and trademark strategy issues, ESG initiatives as well as working closely with the senior lawyers in the commercial team, ensuring that key legal issues are communicated and discussed.
You must be a qualified solicitor between 2-5 years' PQE. Ideally, you will have a strong commercial contracts background and will have worked in-house or done a relevant secondment. Experience in FMCG would be advantageous, though is not necessary. This role is for an individual with a keen interest in the sector who is wishing to progress their in-house career.
This is a unique opportunity to join an established legal team where you can contribute commercial solutions to the different business units. There is scope for real career progression, with the role becoming available due to internal movements in the legal team.
Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
