Senior Manager Legal Counsel - The Role
Are you the type of lawyer that doesn’t want your career to be constrained by specialising in only a few areas of legal practice? Do you prefer the challenge of handling a broad range of new legal and business issues that vary on a daily basis? Are you seeking the professional growth and career development that is possible when you work for a large, NYSE-listed $8+ Billion, multinational health and wellness company?
If this is you, then this unique opportunity to join our 7-person strong EMEA legal team may suit you. In this role, fast-paced variety is the norm, and this is one of several positions that we are seeking to fulfil for our rapidly growing region.
We don’t want to limit your experience - we want to broaden your expertise by giving you responsibility for supporting a wide variety of legal and business needs including general legal research, contractual, commercial, regulatory, IP, privacy, employment, litigation, competition, compliance and other regulatory matters across all business units.
Your influence will not be confined to the UK. As a team player in our international business you may be called upon to counsel your business colleagues in more than 50 countries.
You will have primary responsibility for strategically managing all ongoing and new litigation, and play a central role in minimising such conflicts.
And, you will also participate in a wide variety of EMEA-wide strategic discussions and analysis on important projects and work closely with your business partners, across all departments, to develop pro-active and creative solutions for the business.
Senior Manager Legal Counsel - Requirements
A graduate from a recognised university, you will be a member of the bar with at least 12 years extensive post qualification experience, ideally with at least 5 years’ experience in a top tier, internationally recognised law firm, topped off with additional experience at an in-house legal department of a multi-national company. You will also have significant experience in strategically, aggressively and successfully managing litigation disputes.
You will be motivated by exposure to different areas of the legal landscape and driven to develop and move on within the Company, where opportunity for long term progression awaits.
You will be confident working proactively and autonomously, have a broad knowledge of international business practices and be oriented towards supporting your client with a “can-do” attitude. Even more importantly – you will be eager to expand your knowledge and experiences in these areas.
You will be a strong leader within the company and capable of giving clear direction and guidance. Fluency in English is a key requirement, and given the number of countries we handle the ability to speak another language is also useful.
Experience operating in the MLM and/or life sciences industry at the international level is an advantage, but is not required.
