  • Drafting, negotiating and assisting on industrial supply contracts with a range of customers (large to small);
  • Assisting in responses to customer-driven tender processes, including identification of legal risks in customer’s proposed purchasing terms;
  • Drafting, negotiating and assisting on a range of other contracts with agents and distributors and suppliers (including contracts for services, equipment purchases and transport sourcing).
Depending on your experience or appetite to learn you can also take on interesting project work in employment law, WHS, privacy and franchise law.

About you

You could already be in private practice thinking about that “first move in house”, or a Legal Counsel seeking a step up and exposure to a global business.  Either way we know you will have some great skills to bring to the table based on your commercial legal experience.
