Interim Head of Legal - Commercial and IP

Location: Cheshire, Liverpool & Merseyside
Experience: 8 Years +
Specialism: Commercial/IP, In-House
Date Posted: March 22, 2021
Job ID: 2219
Employment Type: Contract
A large manufacturing company based in Cheshire is seeking an interim Head of Legal for what is likely to be a 5 month fixed term contract to look after the affairs of the organisation whilst they recruit a permanent solicitor. 

This is a sole counsel role with no direct reports although there is some legal support with specific work types such as IP within the Group - this new person will look after the company's UK and European commercial legal matters and report to a US based General Counsel. 

Experienced in-house solicitors with a good mix of commercial, corporate and intellectual property experience are likely to be of most interest - you should be able to turn your attention to novel legal matters and be able to manage a complex and interesting workload. 

The company requires a near immediate starter ideally (although please still make contact if you are close to the end of another fixed term contract). 

You will manage the legal budget, work with external lawyers, support sales and procurement teams, manage litigious matters and provide support to the employment and HR function, alongside managing the governance and regulatory side. 

Package is competitive and likely to pay up to £120,000 per annum, alongside a generous set of benefits. 

Please contact Adam Zdravkovic at Think Legal for a job specification, some details of the background to the role, and a confidential chat.
