A well-known High Street Retailer whose Head Office is based in Nottinghamshire, is looking for a Legal Counsel to join their In-house team.
This family run business has 400 stores across the UK - with big plans to open more. As they are not a PLC, they don't have shareholders to answer to like many other high street giants. Instead, they put people and customers before profit. They offer a great working environment in lovely offices with ample car parking and they invest heavily in ensuring staff are motivated to share their vision of retaining and growing their share of the retail market - a high value of which is based on their own brand products.
The ideal candidate will support the Senior Legal Counsel in helping to provide the Group with first class legal advice and ensure they are legally compliant at all times. You will also have responsibility for a wide range of commercial matters such as IP, DP, Litigation, Competition Law, Property and Corporate.
Key accountabilities for this role will cover Commercial Third-Party Contracts and Disputes. Therefore, you will ideally be a qualified Solicitor or Barrister, and have worked in an In-house environment (preferably retail but not essential) and be able to make decisions and prioritise competing priorities. You will also need to be able to demonstrate significant experience of commercial contract law.
This is a great opportunity to join a growing family owned organisation who have a vision for the future and to be part of a growing In-house Legal Team. The role offers a good salary, benefits and an excellent working environment.
