This leading global firm is currently recruiting for an Associate to join the TMT team based in Glasgow.

This role will provide direct "on the ground" assistance to clients in areas of commercial contracts and TMT work. The work performed by the Legal team in Glasgow is primarily assisting clients from the London office (and, in some circumstances, clients from their Australian offices).  Accordingly this role provides a fantastic opportunity to lawyers who are interested in doing "City work" while based out of Glasgow.

The successful candidate is likely to:

  • Have strong evidence of previous experience in a wide range of commercial contract activity, including (for example) supply contracts, agency and distribution agreements, terms and conditions of purchase and sale, transitional services agreements, consultancy agreements, IP, IT and software licensing agreements, and an understanding of the key specialist areas within each of these contracts including data protection and privacy provisions;

  • Have private practice experience or in-house experience in a role which has involved a significant element of drafting and negotiation of a broad range of commercial contracts;

  • Be technically strong;

  • Be a real team player; and

  • Although not essential, a qualification in English law would be beneficial.
