Job Description

One of the world's leading Media & Entertainment groups seek a commercial lawyer to join their multi-media and entertainment business. You'll be part of a wider legal team, but integrated with your primary stakeholders - so it's very much a business-facing role.

You'll be drafting, negotiating and advising on a range of commercial contracts (inc. sponsorship, talent and video content), dealing with rights issues, social media platforms, digital product launches and consumer issues - amongst many others. You'll also help manage the company's IP portfolio and support on its protection and exploitation.

You'll have demonstrable contract, commercial, IP, consumer and privacy law experience; experience of advising on digital products, and be comfortable with technology and experienced in IP matters; have c.1-3yrs 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.
