SENIOR CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL IN-HOUSE LAWYER, FINTECH
SENIOR CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL IN-HOUSE LAWYER
We are working with a fast-growing company at the forefront of the FinTech sector. This award winning business is going from strength to strength with the imminent launch of a new business segment, as well as a likely IPO in the mid-term.
The Legal team is quickly growing under the guidance of the General Counsel. You will be their first dedicated Commercial & Corporate lawyer and this is a pivotal senior level opportunity, entailing a varied range of work.
You will have trained and qualified with a well-respected law firm-City, national or common law market equivalent OR with a recognised in-house team. Ideally, you will be tried and tested in-house already and have independence and experience to run your own workload, rather than be used to the "partner-safety net". You will have a succesful track record of managing senior stakeholders and external counsel. You must also have hands on experience in:
- general commercial contracts drafting and negotiating, including services agreements, NDAs and IT related contracts;
- general corporate/transactional work, including equity transactions, fundraisings and ideally IPOs - although the latter is not a strict requirement. Some experience of securitisation will also be helpful.
This is a key role in the team, with clear development opportunities in terms of succession planning. The quality of the work is of a high calibre, varied, challenging and directly relevant to business growth and success.
Cultural and personality fit will be crucial: we are looking for a bright team player, who must be pro-active and visible, with a "can-do" attitude and a genuine desire to work closely with the business.
