    Manchester £65,000 – £75,000

    A well-known business in the entertainment & technology sectors is looking for a commercially focussed Solicitor to join their legal team, based in Manchester. The role would be perfect for a Solicitor with a broad commercial background and experience in commercial contracts, M&A, IP and IT, ideally within a Technology focussed team or Technology business. Salary is dependent on individual experience although in the region of £65-75k.

    This innovative business has revolutionised the way entertainment is consumed across the world, and offers their clients a variety of Technology focussed products and services across the entertainment industry. This particular position has arisen due to growth in the business, and will report directly into the General Counsel.

    The successful Solicitor will work as part of a highly collaborative team and deliver commercial legal advice to senior management, external clients and the wider business on a broad range of matters. The position will involve negotiating and drafting a variety of commercial contracts, supporting the management of litigation, managing and protecting an intellectual property portfolio, and advising on any corporate matters including M&A.

    The position would suit someone currently working in a broad In-house role, ideally in a business that develops and creates software or has a technology focus, or is currently working in a Commercial Private Practice team. The role will involve working with colleagues and clients across Europe, so it's also preferred that candidates can speak German, although not essential.

    This is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious Solicitor with substantial experience in commercial, corporate, IP, and IT matters to join the In-house legal team of this growing and recognisable entertainment and technology brand. If the role above sounds of interest, please send across your CV and if suitable we'll be in touch to discuss in more detail.
