That could mean advising on outsourcing, IT infrastructure and support service agreements on projects as varied as electronic patient records and European grant funding systems.

      • 5 Years PQE+

      • Strong business development skills

      Additionally, you may have worked in Private Practice, establishing yourself as a reliable and capable commercial lawyer dealing with a breadth of clients.
