  • Advice and drafting of commercial leases
  • Intellectual property and dispute resolution such as claims to include employment law

Once the function and workflow has been established then there is an opportunity to further recruit in the team should there be a business case to do so. This role would be great for someone who has experience of undertaking an in-house position or a sole legal advisor role in-house for a similar organisation or a commercial business. Candidates must have strong commercial experience and experience of undertaking other areas of law as well due to a range of legal matters which will be brought to this role.
