Brandwatch is looking for its first full time fully qualified Legal Counsel to assist in all legal areas for the company, including commercial contracts with customers, partners and suppliers, compliance with data privacy laws, IP and trademark protection, incorporation of foreign subsidiaries, compliance with employment contracts, etc. The role reports to the CFO and covers all our current operations in the UK, US and Germany and future international subsidiaries as we expand globally.


Details of responsibilities

Contracts management
Managing the contracts we have with third parties is, unsurprisingly, the bulk of the work at Brandwatch and comes under 4 headings:

  • Contract negotiations with larger clients
  • Contracts for newer and more complicated reseller and partners
  • Setting up better systems and processes to track and record the contracts and the risks therein
  • Dealing with a miscellany of generally less contentious contracts (employment, suppliers, leases, etc)

The bulk of the daily work at Brandwatch will be in drafting, amending and negotiating contracts with customers and partners.  These occur mostly with customers in the US and UK and typical areas where we customise our standard clauses around data security, service levels and insurance requirements.

The role also includes setting up and standardising reseller and partner programmes: we have started to sell the complimentary products of other social media companies to customers and these other social media companies have started to sell to Brandwatch. We need contracts to reflect these more complicated arrangements.

Our current systems allow us to find our contracts,  but as we grow, we would like to upgrade our systems including having a proper register of legal risks from our contracts.

Other contract management tasks include review and sign off of NDAs, supplier agreements, employment contracts, marketing contracts, etc.


Data Privacy laws
The privacy of people’s data and their personal identifiable information is a complex legal subject with variations between the countries we operate in, differences whether we are the data controller to when we are a data processor and a lot of uncertainty about how to interpret laws that we designed before the era of social media.

We would need our legal advisor to stay up to date on the developments in this area and help inform how we should react and what changes we need to make to the team.


IP considerations
This role will be required to work on copyright and trademark claims and registrations in the UK, Europe and US and potentially worldwide.


Dispute resolution
Although currently not a significant part of the time spent in this role, we do have occasional cases of escalating disputes, e.g., a small number of clients not paying us, a few minor issues involving our reputation, etc.

Another area of potential work is in the application of copyright laws to social media monitoring. While not currently an issue, different countries have different interpretation and a dispute may eventually arise in one of these areas.


Broader areas
The Legal Counsel will also be asked to assist in all legal areas the company, including

-          Company secretary information

-          Internal governance policies – anti-bribery, equality, data protection.

-          Keeping abreast of legislative changes

-          Reviewing legal risks of expanding into new jurisdictions


Skills and background
We are looking for an intelligent and experienced generalist lawyer who is looking for more responsibility

  • 5-7 years qualified
  • Broad legal knowledge (commercial law, corporate law, employment law, intellectual property law etc)
  • Transaction experience (equity funding, debt funding etc) would be an advantage
  • In-depth understanding of how legal issues affect organisations, preferably in the technology/media field.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Ability to anticipate legal issues or risks
  • Competent at managing their own time including  knowing when to call in external counsel and how to improve their own knowledge
