CENTRAL LONDON

£Competitive + benefits

Our client is the one of leading literary and talent agencies with a unique and impressive collection of authors and properties.

They are seeking a very special kind of lawyer to join the legal team providing invaluable legal advice across the whole of their business.

With a broad focus on general commercial law and a more specialised focus on ecommerce, data protection and compliance you will be comfortable operating in a largely non contentious role. You will also be comfortable operating across the differing worlds of television production, film, publishing digital and technology.

Ideally you will be 5-6 year PQE level but if you have strong, and relevant, experience then someone at a lower level of PQE will be considered.

You will support the business on a broad spectrum of matters and do not need to come from a publishing, TV or film background as other lawyers have that experience and background.

Your adaptable yet tenacious attitude will earn you a reputation as a trusted adviser and a resourceful and an invaluable aide to the team: someone who understands and responds to the ever-changing external needs and internal growth in this challenging and exciting environment.

The team are close knit, hardworking, meritocratic, dynamic and fun so they will be really looking for someone who reflects this in their attitude and personality. You will be proactive, positive in approach and happy mucking in.

You could come from private practice without any in-house experience but, ideally, the successful candidate will have some in-house experience through secondment experience or time spent in-house.
