Job Level: Associate
Fantastic opportunity for a newly qualified lawyer to join a team which has outstanding client relationships in the fashion and sports sectors. They provide a “quasi in-house” service to these clients, and need to recruit due to a consistent increase in work flow.
This is a rare opportunity to work closely with leading fashion and sports brands, gaining experience of close client contact at a very early stage in your career.
You will be providing true legal and business advice to your clients, spending a great deal of time with them and advising on business growth, marketing, IP and dispute resolution as well as commercial contracts drafting and review.
The firm is looking to recruit a candidate who has:
- Strong commercial training contract experience from a reputable law firm
- Completed a seat in commercial or intellectual property law
- Excellent academics
- In-house experience, ideally having undertaken a client secondment during your training contract
- Excellent client and interpersonal skills
- The confidence to pick up new legal issues, clients and ideas quickly
Cultural fit is extremely important to this firm, so candidates will need to have a friendly and down to earth approach as well as outstanding technical skills and the ability to instil confidence in clients.
The environment here is second to none, with sensible working hours and a supportive team. There are excellent partnership opportunities over the longer term.
