Data Protection Lawyer, London, Partner to £350,000

Reference: MC890790
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
IT/IP/Media/Sport - Information Technology
IT/IP/Media/Sport - Data
Opportunity to join this leading international UK headquartered law firm that is looking to further expand its data protection offering as part of a wider commercial group.

Owing to a recent departure, there is work that needs complimenting by a partner with a modest following.  The likely entry point is as a salaried partner but the track to equity is proven and achievable.  The broader commercial group will immediately provide support and there is a raft of corporate and financial services clients to tap into.  The partners understand the practice area and will look more to reputation as opposed to a large book of business.

There are lawyers who can service any current work but this role would look to centralise the data protection practice. The role would be for a recognised data protection specialist or a partner who has developed a data protection practice from an IP or IT background.

Apply online or contact MARK COATES at mark.coates@edwardsgibson.com or +44 7541 666 856 to find out more about this or similar opportunities.

Edwards Gibson acts as an employment agency for permanent roles.
