Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers, we have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.

This role is LIVE as recently confirmed by our client, interviews will be conducted via video calls.

We are working on a fantastic opportunity for a senior Life Sciences Solicitor to join a top-ranked and fast-growing team based in Cambridge.

The successful candidate will take on wide range of interesting and high-quality work for life sciences businesses (including pharmaceutical and drug discovery businesses, medical devices companies, and service suppliers to the life sciences industry) and other clients of the commercial, IP and IT team. The team is fast-growing, and boasts an exciting client base. The post holder will take on matters including advising on IP licensing and partnering transactions; clinical trial agreements; commercial contracts; research collaborations; IP protection; regulatory issues in life sciences; data protection and due diligence for corporate transactions relating to life sciences.

You will work closely with the head of the Life Sciences team as well as other members of our clients' large and friendly commercial IP and IT teams.

The ideal candidate will have at least 5+years PQE gained in a large regional or City firm, or in-house. You will have good technical skills in commercial law with a proven interest in life sciences businesses. You will be enthusiastic and a commercially-minded lawyer, and be prepared to turn your hand to a wide range of work.
