Commercial Lawyer

Type: Permanent
Location: London City, London
Pay Details: £100,000 - £130,000
Sector: In-house
Experience Level: Lawyer
Reference: ST/ 024477

Our client one of the fastest growing Sports Technology Companies in the world is looking for a general commercial lawyer ideally with sports / betting experience to work in a quasi-legal and business facing role.

The CEO is looking for entrepreneurial, commercial and strategic lawyers who may be interested in being part of the commercial sales team. The role will work alongside the CEO to help advise on the strategic direction of the business and will also form part of the management team.  The business is finding that the contracts the sales teams are involved in are becoming increasingly complex and technical. The CEO therefore feels that a lawyer would likely be better placed to drive these deals through as they will ultimately have a far better understanding of the detail.

There may also be an opportunity to support the General Counsel on more traditional legal work if this is important to candidates.

To be considered for the role you will ideally:

  •          Have sports, data, betting and / or rights experience and understand the regulatory requirements within these areas
  •          Be open to working in  a non-traditional legal role and enjoy working in an entrepreneurial and businesses focused environment
  •          Be solutions orientated
  •          Enjoy working in an autonomous environment

The CEO understands that this is a rare opportunity and together with the Managing Director (a former lawyer) he is happy to meet with potential candidates on an exploratory basis to run through their vision and what it is that they are looking to achieve.
