Highly acquisitive business seeks corporate specialist at 8 years + PQE for this key, newly created role of Deputy General Counsel.

The organisation has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years and seeks to continue this as part of the current 5 year plan. Reporting to the General Counsel, you will have a solid background in corporate transactional work, ideally M&A/private equity.

The ideal individual will either be in private practice, at a firm well-regarded for its corporate expertise or already in-house with a day-day bias toward corporate work.

This is an incredibly fast moving environment and the role affords an ambitious corporate lawyer the chance to play a key part in the future growth and strategic direction of both the legal offering and the business itself.

On offer is an outstanding basic salary and excellent bonus potential.
