Our client is looking for an In-house Legal Counsel / Commercial Lawyer to join their highly regarded legal team for up to a 12-month fixed term contract. Based in Cambridge this is a varied role involving drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and agreements.

* Experience of dealing with multiple jurisdiction

In-house experience would be desirable, but the client would consider a private practice lawyer looking to move in-house who could point to good business and commercial skills. Experience of the technology sector would also be a big plus.
Our client envisages that candidates with 4+ years PQE plus will have the relevant skills / knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.
