LEGAL & BUSINESS AFFAIRS COUNSEL - TITLE TBC
BUSINESS AFFAIRS CONSULTANCY
3-6 YEARS' PQE
LONDON & WFH
We are working with a fast-growth disruptive professional services firm with offices in London and internationally. It offers strategic support to start-ups, incubators and SMEs and its clients are predominantly in the tech and creative sectors. This is a new role for an experienced Legal & Business Affairs lawyer to join the team.
The successful candidate will work directly with clients' C-Suite on a variety of commercial and corporate matters: these might range from commercial contracts to JVs, fundraising, board and corporate resolutions, DP and IP. We are after generalists who are happy to turn their hand to anything, can take a view and make recommendations. Commercial awareness and alignment with clients' ethos and expectations will go a long way. This can be a very rewarding and enjoyable role, where you actively become part of the clients' team and therefore we are open to candidates from either in-house or private practice backgrounds.
You will have a minimum of c. 3 years' PQE and demonstrable experience in some of the matters outlined above. You should be based in London and qualified in a common law jurisdiction.
Personality-wise, this role will suit a flexible, adaptable, hands-on lawyer with strong interpersonal and consultative skills. If you are interested in moving away from traditional law or in-house roles and and are actively interested in high-growth businesses but also want to work in a stable and professional environment: this is the perfect opportunity for you! Please get in touch to discuss further
