A venture capital firm investing in start-ups and fast growth companies is currently in the process of hiring a junior corporate lawyer for one of its investment companies. You will report directly to the CEO whilst having guidance and oversight from the General Counsel of the investor. You will lead on all legal issues and be responsible for the negotiation of commercial terms as well as acting as secretary to the committee. On a day to day basis you will provide more general legal advice to the business and undertake legal due diligence as you support capital raising and BAU type queries. You will manage legal risk and work on legal projects with the assistance of external counsel. You will also assist the wider group by working on the fund management side of the business with the General Counsel as well as other group-wide projects.
We are looking for someone who is already punching above their weight and is ambitious enough to take full control over the legal function within a couple of years. You will have worked at a top City practice and have attained excellent academics. You will have some experience in either venture capital or private equity. Excellent benefits including company shares will be available.
