You will form part of the Commercial team, which deals with a wide range of non-contentious commercial, technology, e-commerce, privacy, consumer, IP, advertising, marketing and media law.
Your primary focus would be on this type of work. It will be largely transactional work with some advisory work too.
The Commercial team is based in London and, while you will be encouraged to spend time in the London office (especially initially), the role will be primarily Cardiff based.
The Commercial team is growing and is keen to support the growth of its Cardiff office. Currently, our Cardiff office has employment, real estate, corporate and (junior) data privacy resource.
Growing commercial work from the Cardiff office is a core part of the strategic vision of the Commercial team and firm. Members of the London team will increasingly be encouraged to spend time in the Cardiff office to help its growth and to support you.
You will be well supported by the Partners and other fee earners in the Cardiff office.
The team is a fantastic, energetic and sociable group with an extremely impressive and varied client base, predominantly in the retail, technology, advertising and marketing, media, professional services, entertainment and sport sectors.
You will work with most of the partners within the team. You will be expected be the lead associate on transactions and to manage junior and associates trainees working with you.
You would have partner supervision to varying degrees (depending on the matter) but should be comfortable in leading on, and negotiating, transactional work.
Your workload will be predominantly transaction led with some advisory work, e.g. on consumer and data privacy.
