We help our clients stay ahead of changes that impact their businesses, navigating complexity and risk. We deliver deep tax technical and legal expertise, while providing the critical context to make informed and compliant decisions. With clients ranging from multinational organisations and public sector bodies to entrepreneurs and family businesses, the work we do is diverse.
Hear from Ed Stacey, Tax People Leader about what a career in Tax could mean for you - from development, to our culture, to what we value in our people when building our team.
The IP & Commercial team within our Legal network is uniquely placed for a range of traditional and highly unusual (mostly non-contentious) legal projects. We advise businesses, from start-ups to multinational companies across every sector, accessing PwC’s extensive and diverse client-base. We enjoy an unrivalled opportunity to build deep client relationships, and to work on technically challenging and varied engagements. Our commercial and IP work often overlaps. Typical commercial work might vary from traditional contract drafting, review and negotiation to assisting large groups to working on large global group reorganisations. These reorganisations involve helping clients to work out how major operational changes might impact them from a legal perspective, with responsibilities (amongst others) for changes to their international supplier and customer relationships and putting in place new (often complex) intragroup agreements to reflect the new model. In other projects, we might review a client’s key contracts to assess them (and how they enter into them) against best practice. The team is also home to our IP expertise, and the range of work is equally extensive. We regularly advise on protecting IP and on a range of IP contracts (licences, franchises etc), as well (to a lesser extent) on IP disputes. Working with other (non-legal) IP experts around PwC, we also have an unparalleled practice advising on IP structuring (reorganising IP portfolios), analysis, commercialisation and risk reviews. Following the events of the last year, PwC has radically changed its approach to working, introducing a hybrid model of office and remote working, as well as flexible hours. You will have unprecedented freedom to design your own working day around your own, your clients’ and our team’s needs. With more than 3,700 legal specialists in over 100 countries, our legal services network is one of the most extensive in the world, connecting you with talented professionals to leverage and learn from throughout your career with us.
