Ref: 478 Date Posted: Tuesday 28 May 2024

Commercial contracts is a core element of digitalisation, and also a core requirement of the business-as-usual and the firms clients as they seek to focus on wider projects to further their strategic aims. The role will focus on commercial contracts expertise, but also with opportunities to develop TMT and data skills as part of the wider Digital Economy Transactions team.

Accordingly this role provides a fantastic opportunity to lawyers who are interested in doing "City work" while based out of Glasgow.

On Offer:

Highly competitive salary and benefits package.
