Corporate Lawyer – 6+PQE – 3 month assignment

We are currently working with a specialist corporate law firm, that is looking to engage a mid-senior level corporate Lawyer on a particular project which is anticipated to run for circa 3 months in duration. It is anticipated that the hourly commitments could range from 25-60 hours per week, depending on the stage of the transaction. The project will pay a competitive hourly rate and will be a non-exclusive engagement which can run alongside other consultancy projects, if necessary. Lawyers can work remotely from within the UK and should be available immediately or at short notice.

The successful Lawyer will likely have a strong corporate law background with venture capital and/or private equity exposure, gained from notable City or International law firms. The Lawyer can expect to be involved in drafting memorandum of associations to dovetail with a VC investment agreement, amongst other matters. Whilst supervision and support will be provided, the successful Lawyer will be expected to work with a level of autonomy.

Whilst this initial project is anticipated to run for circa 3 months in duration, there is potential to form a longer-term relationship with the firm and work on future projects.

Successful Lawyers are likely to demonstrate:

  • Qualification in England & Wales, or another commonwealth jurisdiction (such as Australia or New Zealand, for example).
  • Ideally, upwards of 6 years’ experience (although applicants outside this bracket will be considered).
  • A solid corporate law background, ideally with VC and/or PE exposure, gained from notable City or International law firms.
  • A keen eye for detail.
  • The ability to work autonomously.
  • The ability to start a new role immediately or at very short notice.
