Legal Counsel - Manufacturing/ Greater Manchester / £50 - £60k

New opportunity for a Commercial Legal Counsel to join a Global Manufacturing business in the Greater Manchester area. Applications are invited from UK qualified Solicitors with a minimum of 3 years PQE who have previous Commercial Contracts experience from within Private Practice or In-house.

The business is well established and has operated globally for a number of years. As Commercial Counsel your remit will cover the EMEA region, providing expert Legal advice to business units on a variety of matters including commercial contract drafting/review, corporate & regulatory compliance, M&A and governance. You will form part of a wider Legal team based in the US.

Ideally this role is suited to a Commercial Solicitor who has had a focus on manufacturing in their career to date.
