Legal Counsel Corporate and Compliance

Legal Counsel Corporate and Compliance

Our client is an international player in the media sphere, championing a diverse offering and driven by creativity.  An opportunity has arisen for an experienced M&A lawyer to join a dynamic team reporting directly into the Group General Counsel, in the company’s headquarters in the close Parisian suburbs.

The successful candidate will provide thorough legal support on important transactions relating to the company’s external growth (mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, take-over bids) and restructuring.  He/she will also handle corporate law matters relating to post acquisition and joint venture follow-up, and the negotiation of shareholder agreements, in France and abroad.  The legal counsel will also be in charge of compliance matters, involving implementation of the programme, training and overall support, and will also have the opportunity to be involved in broader legal support in commercial, distribution or IP matters.

You will benefit from a minimum of 5 years’ experience in M&A, ideally with some experience acquired in private practice.  You pride yourself on being able to zoom in on the key issues and communicate efficiently and concisely within a business environment.  You are pragmatic and enjoy teamwork, and exercise rigour and tact in handling sensitive matters.

This is a great opportunity to join a team with high visibility within the company and capitalise on the excellent skills you have acquired in the M&A field, whilst broadening your expertise to wider legal and compliance support.  You will enjoy operating in a challenging and collaborative environment, and importantly, in a prosperous context driven by passionate people.
