A DAY IN THE LIFE…

NICOLE TOPPING – LEGAL COUNSEL ICONIX EUROPE, MANCHESTER

What do you do? 

Legal Counsel, Iconix Europe – I mostly draft and negotiate contracts, which I find really interesting and is a lot more fun than it sounds!  I work closely with the Iconix Europe team and prepare the licence agreements for each licensee/brand across the territory and ensure things are on track.

What would be your advice for anyone wanting a career like you? 

Do your research and really try to understand what is involved.  There are so many options when it comes to a career in law, which can be both a good and bad thing; good because it allows for choice and variety but bad because it can be difficult to work out what it is you want to do.  A lot of people seem to go into a career in law because they’re not really sure what they want to do but if you find something that interests you and you care about it, it’s incredibly rewarding.

What’s your favourite thing about working within Iconix brands? 

The variety and daily challenges.

What do you like most about working here? 

The challenging and interesting work in a good office environment. We have a ten-pin bowling team and we’re quite good!
