A private equity-backed SaaS business is looking to appoint a Global Legal Director in its central London offices.

Reporting to the CFO, you will manage a small team of lawyers split between London and the US, essentially taking the lead on all legal and privacy matters on a global basis. In addition to the typical diet of transactional work (supporting global sales and partner activities), you will also be responsible for company secretarial, intellectual property management, GDPR compliance, and M&A and corporate development support.

The ideal candidate is expected to have a minimum of 10 years’ PQE gained in a highly-commercial environment and also comprising substantial exposure to Software-as-a-Service, ideally gained working for a vendor. In addition, you should also have a proven track record of managing and mentoring more junior lawyers, as well as developing strong relationships with key stakeholders and commercial teams.

In return, you’ll be paid an excellent salary in addition to a 20% bonus, pension, healthcare, life assurance and other fringe benefits. The company’s office is based in the heart of the West End and, whilst this is an office-based role (post-COVID), there is a very healthy approach to flexible and remote-working, with 1-2 days per week working from home.
