SENIOR LAWYER – GROWTH & INVESTMENT The opportunity We are looking for a Senior Associate (5+ PQE) to join our highly regarded Growth and Investment
Team, to be based in our Cambridge or London office.
The successful candidate should have experience of working with entrepreneurial businesses and a
track record of running early stage seed and venture capital fundraisings and related matters. You will
be based in either of our offices and will be responsible for assisting the existing team members with
servicing their clients and continuing the development and growth of the team. As a senior member of
our team, you will have strong delegating skills and enjoy supervising and developing junior members of
the team, allowing you to take on high levels of responsibility and lead transactions with the team
Our ideal candidate is someone who wants to build their own stable of growing businesses in the
technology space and having responsibility for client work and relationships. Taking a broad technical
knowledge of commercial law, corporate law and transactions as a given, we are looking for an
ambitious lawyer who shares our passion for our clients’ businesses and adding value by providing
practical and commercial advice.
The team Our Growth and Investment team is not about traditional transactional work. Instead we help energised,
aspiring and IP-rich businesses (and those who invest into them) realise their plans for national and
international expansion. Each year we act on over 100 private company financings. We unite venture
capitalists, angel investors, syndicates and institutions with the funding opportunities that match their
aims – often with emerging tech companies, universities and research organisations.
Our success is built on close working relationships with our clients, effectively acting as in-house legal
support. It’s a wide-ranging brief; you’ll be a triage service for issues from IP to commercial contracts to
share options, as well as assessing risk and closing investment and M&A deals. You’ll have a high level
of client contact, frequently working in their offices. And by playing a key role at the heart of their
business, you’ll quickly gain experience, responsibility and status, hopefully becoming a trusted business
advisor to a number of clients.
