Legal Director

Legal Director

Our client is an innovative and high-growth consumer technology business. As a result of strategic expansion, our client has created a unique Legal Director role to be based in New York City. This position has a global remit and will work closely with the CEO and CFO.

Reporting to the Chief Legal Officer, this role will manage a small legal team located in Germany. Our client envisions succession planning so the successful appointee will ideally bring proven managerial experiences alongside the ambition and competency to potentially move up the career ladder.

You will support on all general commercial matters globally with a focus on our client’s key hubs in North America, Europe and Australia. The role will involve advising on contracts, competition, compliance,  IP, marketing, e-commerce, and consumer regulatory matters. You will contribute to our client’s high growth strategy and play a key role in building external partnerships and managing the integrations that have resulted from recent acquisitions. You will also lead, inspire and influence a team and business from a distance and the role will require frequent travel to Germany where the Chief Legal Officer is also based.

Candidates are likely to have at least 8 years of post-qualification experience. Previous experience in consumer technology with a focus on B2C is preferred and experience of working in a fast-paced and international in-house legal department is essential. Our client’s culture is described as caring, compassionate, ambitious and innovation led. Previous experience in a listed company and additional languages are hugely advantageous.
