  • Coordination of contracts from a legal perspective (lifecycle and risk assessment, dispute management);
  • Discussion partner of all aspects of the business as well as a line of defense for compliance and risk related matters;

All of this will not just be done by yourself, but in close cooperation and with support of your colleagues in the team.
