We offer clients a range of fixed-fee legal packages covering everything that small businesses and startups need – company set up, contract review and negotiation, employment, capital raising and data protection. We run our business like a tech startup, with user experience, creativity and lean thinking at the core of our culture.

We’re currently looking for a junior commercial lawyer with 2-3 PQE to join our growing team in the UK.

Key experience and skills:

We’re looking for a qualified lawyer with 2-3 years PQE in general commercial law, preferably having worked in a leading private practice or in-house environment in England or Wales.

This is a junior lawyer role, so there would be supervision from senior lawyers. However, the successful candidate should be confident to take ownership of most matters, particularly in basic commercial law.

In addition, specialisation in any of the following areas would be favourably considered:

  • Technology & IP contracts;
  • Privacy, data protection and GDPR related work; and
  • Employment law.

The successful candidate would also demonstrate the following key skills:

  • Personable, with experience working directly with clients;
  • Tech-savvy, able to operate our technology platforms;
  • Independent, comfortable working autonomously; and
  • Efficient, works smart and get things done.

Work environment:

Our clients include all kinds of businesses, from local cafes to tech startups, so you’ll always have a variety of work.

You’ll get to work autonomously while being part of an innovative and collaborative team.

We have a fully distributed international team and take flexible working seriously. Our general approach is that you can choose how you best work, whether it be from home, the office, or somewhere else. For us it’s more than just taking your laptop home – we know that it takes effective project management, communication and transparent accountability to make flexible arrangements work.

We also have an awesome company culture and you’ll always feel welcome at our virtual social events.

If you’re ready to be part of an exciting and growing team that is changing the way legal services are delivered, then we’d love to receive your application!

Timing: This role is to start in early 2022.
