The Legal Team sits within the Global Support division of Informa.
The Legal Team is highly respected and a valued business partner to the Informa Group. It has lawyers based principally in North America, the UK and Asia and has a mixture of leaders and experts in subject areas (such as Intellectual Property, Data Protection, Mergers & Acquisitions, Employment) and geographies, providing global advice in a timely and often business critical environment.
The Team has played a pivotal role to the Group’s recent growth and strong financial results, assisting the business with its acquisition strategy, supporting the successful execution of numerous transactions that have grown the company from a market capitalisation of around £2.7bn at the start of 2014 to over £9bn today. This is in addition to assisting the Group with its recent significant investment in new platforms, systems and product launches alongside BAU activities; together this has resulted in the Group climbing quickly from a FTSE 250 company to a company today within the top 50 companies of the FTSE100 with significant global operations in a number of markets and regions. The Legal Team were integral to two recent significant transactions; the £4 billion acquisition of UBM plc and the £1.2 billion acquisition of Penton Information Services.
In 2017, the Team’s recent successes were externally recognised winning Legal Weeks “In-house TMT Team of the Year” award.
The Team is currently recruiting a paralegal to assist with a variety of matters.
This role will be based in Informa’s London head office.
