Job Description

We are acting for a leading FTSE 250 chemical manufacturing company listed on the London Stock Exchange. They are looking for a German Qualified Legal Counsel to join their team in London. This presents a great opportunity to work in-house for a leading company in a very broad business facing role, where you will be responsible for advising the business in commercial and corporate matters, particularly drafting and negotiating international sales and procurement agreements. Commercial and commercial contracts experience is therefore desirable. Furthermore, given the global footprint of the company there is a significant international dimension to the role for most group matters and the opportunity to travel.

You will be a German qualified lawyer who has completed both state examinations with strong results as well as having acquired at least two years post-qualification experience at a leading law firm or a global company. You are fluent and able to work in both English and German. Further foreign language skills may be advantageous.

This role is ideally suited for a private practice lawyer seeking to make their first move in-house or for an in-house lawyer seeking to take their career to the next level at a global organisation.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
