My client is a US Private Wealth Manager in the process of expanding its small legal team by recruiting a proactive Legal Counsel (2-5 yrs) to focus primarily on Commercial and Privacy law issues, although tasks will vary. In the short term, the role will be focused on continuing to implement the company privacy program. Eventually, this role will develop into an autonomous position where you'll be responsible for creating and managing small Privacy team.

You will draft and negotiate numerous contract agreements such as SLA's, Tob's, IMA's and advise the business on day-to-day legal requirements. Initially, this role will have a heavy emphasis on privacy where you'll be responsible for completing any DPIA requirements, Article 28 contract reviews and, where applicable, ensuring there are sufficient safeguards in place for international transfers. You will liaise with US parent company, RFI Legal and other departments required to ensure alignment with risk management objectives and collaborate on joint projects. You will review the firm's compliance with the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 and make recommendations to senior management where weaknesses or gaps may exist.

Candidates must have a minimum of 3yrs PQE with creditable Commercial Law and GDPR experience gained from an in-house legal team or regarded city practice. This role is offering career progression into a team management position and good work/life balance.
