Our mission is to power the success of every business by delivering legal support that is proactive, affordable and commercial, and the key way we do this is through our industry-first legal services membership. We have assisted over 200,000 businesses across the UK, Australia and New Zealand, and we’re just scratching the surface.

If you are excited about the prospect of growing your career in an innovative and growing business that offers challenging work, a fast-paced startup environment, and impressive professional development and team management opportunities, then we’d love to hear from you!

The Opportunity

We are looking for a 4+ PQE UK qualified lawyer to join our Corporate and Commercial team. In this position, you will assist our growing number of diverse clients with a varied range of commercial and corporate work. LegalVision’s clients operate in a range of industries, including SaaS/IT, healthcare, e-commerce, construction and recruitment.   

Ideally, we are also looking for a versatile lawyer, with a broad knowledge base, who is also willing to be flexible and to assist our other practice areas from time to time. Our ideal candidate has a strong grasp of the UK’s data protection legislation (including the UK GDPR), as well as consumer laws. 

The role will also involve people management responsibilities for trainees and junior lawyers, so a genuine interest in coaching and developing others is a must.

This is an opportunity to practise law differently - without the inflexibility, micromanagement and facetime of traditional law firms - whilst continuing to work on challenging matters with interesting clients. You’ll enjoy the benefits of autonomy and flexibility, whilst working alongside legal experts who genuinely care about and are invested in your professional growth.
