In-House Legal Counsel

Contract Type
Full time, Permanent

Following a company restructure, an opening has been made for a commercial contracts lawyer within the legal team of this general insurer. Guidance and training will be provided but the ability to work on a large volume of commercial contracts accurately is essential. IMAs, supplier and insurance contracts, regulatory issues and M&A are all covered by the team and in addition to commercial contracts, the workload will also contain competition, technology, privacy and employment law issues. There is the potential to become the subject matter expert and lead lawyer to the business for anyone who can demonstrate a strength in one of these areas. This is not a technical legal role but more of a business partner position and emphasis will be put on team and cultural fit as you develop internal relationships and become the go-to person for the stakeholders.

More than one role could be available and therefore my client is looking at enthusiastic and driven lawyers at all levels from 0 to 8 years post qualified. Attitude and competency are more important that years of experience. You should be experienced in commercial contracts and have an interest in the insurance industry but prior insurance experience is not essential.
