We're very proud here at Nestlé Legal to have built an exceptional team with the knowledge and experience to advise all Nestlé businesses operating in the UK and Ireland. Working across a uniquely broad range of legal matters, our remit encompasses everything from commercial and corporate deals to intellectual property and advertising, competition law, employment and beyond.
As a result, there's no such thing as a typical day in Group Legal. But, with a highly commercial focus and proven capacity to respond to Nestlé's changing needs and objectives in a highly competitive market, our lawyers are equal to the challenge. For example, one day might involve preparing the sponsorship agreement for a new product launch such as KIT KAT Senses, finalising the co-manufacturing agreement for the product itself, dealing with data protection issues on the market research and reviewing customer agreements before the roll-out of the advertising campaign. A host of commercial, intellectual property and other issues may be involved.
This flexibility is essential to our work, due to the changing nature of the economy and the FMCG market. Increased regulations at both local and European levels and a more complex commercial environment require Nestlé lawyers to stand at the forefront of a number of strategic decisions and commercial deals, protecting and defending the company's interests, interests and assets in a highly competitive environment.
For you, this will mean a legal career which provides you with an unparalleled opportunity to get involved and make an impact at every level. You might contribute your skills as a commercial lawyer or an intellectual property lawyer, a trade mark specialist, specialist employment, property, corporate or competition lawyer. But one thing's for sure: your contribution will make the critical difference.
