(This notice is in addition to our other post for a permanent role)
We’re looking for a tech lawyer to cover for maternity leave. The leave itself is likely to start in November, but we would like the individual covering to start in October to facilitate handover.
The workload consists largely of supporting a number of US-based clients selling their software and cloud services into the UK, providing legal assistance to their local UK sales teams. The role necessarily involves co-ordinating with US clients on both Pacific and Eastern timezones.
You will be a lawyer with strong academics and an enthusiasm for technology (maybe a bit of a geek!). Our department is known for its leading-edge work in open source, cloud computing and communications and software technology. The role covers non-contentious IP licensing, privacy and data protection, web terms and conditions, development agreements, cloud computing, channel-to-market and general commercial contracting with an exposure to cross-border work, for a client base which ranges from startups to NYSE-listed multinationals.
We’re looking for an individual with around 3-5 years PQE, although candidates with a strong practical background (in another industry, or as a paralegal?) with any level of experience will be considered (qualification indications are just a guide).
The successful candidate would be working with the technology partner Andrew Katz, two other dedicated tech lawyers and would also be providing support to the corporate team.
The role is based at our head office in Marlow, with some opportunity to work from our London office, based in Marylebone Station.
We pay competitively and have a comprehensive benefits package.
Contact Andrew Katz with a CV if you are interested in the role.
