Job Description

My client is a fantastic fintech, who have just gone through their series B funding. They are launching their platform at the end of the year, in multiple jurisdictions, including the US and Canada. They are growing massively, with significant backing from a number of large banks, they have a very secure offering. 

Reporting into the GC, you will be tasked with providing legal support across a range of issues, including blockchain, IP, technology contracts and a key requirement is smart contracts. They work in a different way to most firms, very agile, collaborative and working closely with different units of the firm to develop the product, with the lawyers getting involved in significant work outside of legal.

The role would suit a 4-8 PQE lawyer, who trained at a top firm. Secondment or in-house experience is preferred due to the culture. IT/IP and smart contracts experience is of interest, especially within financial services. 

This is an exceptional opportunity for a lawyer, to really help build a great product and affect change within financial services.
