Our client is a leading technology company and they currently have a significant legal need over the next few months and are therefore seeking to recruit a medium-term secondment for around 4-5 months with the possibility of extending.
They are looking for someone who fits the following mandate :
You will work on the venture building side of the business in a full time capacity.
You will be a mid to senior level lawyer capable of working independently and with a specialism in technology, with strong commercial contract drafting and negotiation skills.
Exposure to healthcare would be an advantage but not essential - the main project is a technology implementation project and will be supported by the GC and they will have the ability to refer to external counsel for specialist healthcare regulatory matters.
Ideally based in Abu Dhabi with the ability to attend meetings (or Dubai with the ability to commute). Remote working is a possibility.
Currently, the potential for on-site work is on an ad hoc basis in Abu Dhabi and limited to where there is a specific need on the day but they may increasingly move towards a more definitive hybrid model soon as a business overall.
The areas of advice and support it would need going forward include :
Transactional and regulatory advice relating to IT and new technologies
Public Private Partnerships (particularly in the health, oil & gas and utilities sectors)
Outsourcing and offshoring
Joint Ventures, strategic alliances and ecosystem agreements
Healthcare (especially any healthcare regulatory experience)
We are ideally seeking someone already in the region, common law qualified with an international law firm background.
You will earn a competitive salary based on experience. We look forward to hearing from you if you fit the above remit. Due to the high level of responses, we can only respond to those that fit the criteria. Thank you.
