MEDIA/ CONTENT LAWYER, 6+ YEARS' PQE

AMSTERDAM

£HIGHLY COMPETITIVE

Our client is a leading international media company, a market leader in television broadband, internet and telephony services and a pioneer in innovative technology.

We are seeking a dynamic senior media lawyer to join our Legal & Business Affairs team, based in Amsterdam. Candidates will have IP, licensing and commercial experience from a top-tier law firm or TMT business, particularly in the field of television and digital media.

The legal team provides a first-rate service supporting the business in all content-related legal matters, with a particular focus on negotiating and drafting distribution deals for linear and VOD content, across multiple platforms and territories, including channel carriage deals.

You will be an expert negotiator with excellent drafting skills and technical acumen, and a desire to keep abreast of developments in the market and legal arena, providing internal training when required.

As a confident communicator you will seek to build and grow relationships, both within the business and externally, exercising good judgement and a proactive attitude to the continuous development of the team. Team leadership experience or a desire to manage a team is essential.

You will be a self-starter and enjoy relative freedom and independence in the decision- making process, taking a commercial and strategic approach to a wide range of matters.

The role is based in Amsterdam with trips back to London from time to time.

For further information, please contact Sinead Flanagan and Harry Offer in the strictest confidence.
