Why consider Radiometer Medical and Danaher?

Do you have experience as an attorney-at-law and working with commercial transactions in a global environment? Then this job is your opportunity to become a trusted advisor for top management and many other stakeholders in a global context. The job is going to challenge your ability to negotiate, structure critical information and convey legal content to ensure that our Medical Devices are sold and distributed all over the world. That way you play a key role in ensuring our mission of helping caregivers make diagnostic decisions that save lives.

Radiometer’s Legal Department is a trusted team, part of top management

Depending on your skills, interests and backgrounds you will have the opportunity to contribute to several other areas with the purpose of creating value for the business and reducing costs for outside counsel.

The job requires travelling between 10-20 % of your time depending on your preferences and the business needs. We are a part of truly global setup with local legal counsels placed all over the world.
