Commercial contracts are the bedrock of company law, although they come in an increasingly variety of guises and specialisms these days. They are often sought after in equal measure by employers in both Practice and Industry and demand for such lawyers has never been higher.
In most instances, contracts roles with be overwhelmingly classified as non-contentious and are a necessity for any business operating in the commercial sector. These contracts are in place with a view of managing risk and require candidates with a keen eye for detail and an ability to draft, amend, review and negotiate complex terms of an agreement, safeguarding their client’s interests without limiting transactions or revenue streams.
Whilst generalist commercial contracts positions are still the most typical requirement, modern market trends has seen an upturn of increasingly specialist contracts roles which has helped create a more niche market for some lawyers with expertise in areas such as; GDPR, Data Management, Procurement, Compliance and IT, which now runs in parallel with the more traditional B2B and B2C roles.
We have a number of consultants across both sectors who are experienced and knowledgeable in market demands and trends. We work with some of largest law firms and plc’s as well as assisting some lesser known but equally interesting niche players. If you have a background in commercial contract law, there is a strong probability that there are likely to be options in the market which will fit your own particular requirement. Speaking to us does not obligate you in any way but it might help you understand more clearly the choices you may have before you.
