A London based integrated advertising and communications agency with international offices is looking for a qualified lawyer to join their expanding team.


The company has a reputation as one of the most innovative agencies in the industry, and the legal team plays a highly visible role in facilitating the work of the creative teams. The successful candidate will enjoy a good level of autonomy with a variety of work in a highly stimulating environment.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Assisting with drafting and negotiating a variety of commercial contracts such as production agreements, talent agreements, framework services agreements for media planning and buying, branding services and supplier contracts;

  • Researching and advising on IP issues (both contentious and non-contentious);

  • Reviewing, amending and negotiating NDAs; and
