Job Description

One of the world's most recognisable names in media and entertainment seek a commercial lawyer to join their rapidly growing online video distribution and AdTech business. Your legal skills will of course be a significant factor, but just as important is your capacity to work in a "business affairs" capacity - offering commercial advice as much as legal.

You'll be drafting, negotiating and advising on a range of commercial contracts (inc. video distribution and AdTech agreements); supporting the Compliance function; managing external counsel; and providing mentorship and guidance to more junior lawyers - amongst many other responsibilities.

You'll have demonstrable commercial contracts, distribution and/or AdTech experience; with the addition of litigation, compliance or regulatory experience being ideal. A background in entertainment, media and/or online would also be beneficial. Finally, you should have c.5-10yrs+ PQE* with, ideally, private practice training with a reputable firm.

If you thrive under commercial pressure in an environment where no two days are the same, then this might be the ideal role for you!

*NB: PQE levels are offered as a guide only. Our client will accept applications from all candidates who can demonstrate the skills necessary for the role.

Handle actively welcomes applicants from under-represented backgrounds

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high volume of applications we receive we are unable to respond to everyone. If you have not heard from us within 5 working days of sending your CV then unfortunately you have not been shortlisted for the position you have applied for.
