Senior Data Protection Solicitor (Associate/Senior Associate/Legal Director (any office)
Birketts is a thriving and ambitious full service Top 100 UK law firm, based in East Anglia and London. We have a rich heritage and track record of advising businesses, institutions and individuals in the UK and internationally.
Our Data Protection team sits within the wider commercial, IP and Technology team. The team’s specialists work hand in hand with a wide ranging client base to provide full service data protection and compliance service. Data protection is integrated into a range of core service offerings across the firm, affording team members the opportunity to work closely other teams across the firm, in particular the corporate and employment teams.
The work will require a detailed understanding of, and genuine enthusiasm for, data protection law and experience of its practical implementation. The candidate requires an ability to explain complex issues clearly and effectively, the confidence to negotiate, and the focus to keep a cool head under pressure.
You will be expected to take ‘ownership’ of your matters and progress these with clients and others, with minimal supervision and guidance. Participation in business development initiatives and activities will also be required, so you should have some experience of writing articles for internal and external publication, networking and an appetite for public speaking.
This is a fantastic opportunity to become a key member of a dynamic and growing team dealing with high quality work. We are ideally seeking a Solicitor at Associate/Senior Associate or Legal Director level of 5+ PQE with training from a well-regarded firm or in-house organisation, with strong previous data protection experience.
