Bucharest Job No. r00148080

Job Description

Accenture is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all employees and to providing employees with a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. Accenture will not tolerate discrimination or harassment based on any of these characteristics. Accenture encourages applicants of all ages.

Global Legal Network is a group of professionals operating globally from 11 countries. It provides a broad spectrum of differentiated services - focused on delivering value and innovation. We partner with Legal teams across Accenture to build efficiencies and centers of excellence related to Legal services; and through our size, geographic spread and language diversity, the Global Legal Network is able to drive quality, agility and speed in our services, aligned to Accenture’s relentless focus on maximum efficiency and operational effectiveness.

Acquisitions and Corporate Advisory (ACA) is part of our Corporate Services. Our Acquisitions team provide expertise and accurate due diligence reviews to the M&A leads to match the type of business or company being acquired, such as its risk profile, customer base, and product lines, conducting synergies assessment by deal type (channel, scope, scale, technology) to ensure value is not lost during the integration. Additionally, the Corporate Support teams have a broad view into overall corporate operations to collaborate in key corporate areas such as (i) Corporate matters, (ii) E-Discovery, (iii) Litigation, (iv) Contract Documentation Alignment Team (CDAT), (v) Government Relations and (vi) Legal Cyber Review Team (LCRT).

As other corporate functions, ACA is also already focusing on technology disruption. The “three A’s” (automation, artificial intelligence, and analytics) are just a few technology disruptors that will likely shape the function in the near future.

Acquisitions provides end to end support throughout Accenture’s acquisition lifecycle from legal due diligence exercise to post-merger integration. The team supports review of client and vendor contracts and corporate documents of the target company in legal due diligence exercises, helping the V&A Legal teams to understand the target company’s risk profile and put in place the remediation plan for critical findings. The team also helps manage the post-merger integration activities to ensure a seamless transition of the target company’s contracts and business to Accenture.
