Job Description

My client is a Fintech business, who due to rapid expansion are looking to hire their first head of legal. The business operates a global prime brokerage and FX trading platform. The role reports into the MD, has direct board access and will be implementing all the systems and procedures for the business. You will be required to support the whole business on any legal issues that might arise across commercial, corporate and financial services. There is scope to grow the team in the future as the business expands and a need becomes available. 

The role would suit a 5+ PQE lawyer who has financial services experience, ideally with banking, trading or brokerage firms. Secondment or in-house experience is preferred, but not essential. The role is very business focused, so requires the ability to liaise with senior stakeholders. The role requires a lawyer who is not afraid to go outside their comfort zone and get involved in a multitude of areas of law, finding commercial resolutions to legal issues. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a lawyer to head up a successful fintech business.
