Legal Counsel - Retail

Manchester – £50,000 - £60,000

New opportunity for a Commercial Legal Counsel to join a well established Retail business in the Greater Manchester area. Applications are invited from UK qualified Solicitors from 1 PQE who have previous Commercial Contracts experience from within Private Practice or In-house.

The business operates globally, and through a series of acquisitions and organic growth has increased it's footprint on an international scale. Salary and wider benefits are excellent for the region.

Ideally this role is suited to a Commercial Solicitor who has had a focus on Retail brands in their career to date. Exposure to International work (i.e multiple jurisdictions) is preferred, but we are keen to hear from Solicitors with strong Commercial agreements experience (include licensing, supplier, distribution) and IP agreements (including sponsorship and licensing) in any sector. It is also hoped that the successful candidate will have had the opportunity to support on Corporate transactions to date.

The role offers fantastic progression for any Solicitor who wishes to increase their senior stakeholder exposure and lead on legal matters within a business. This is a dynamic, hard-working team which is integral to the ongoing success of this business.
