Corporate Solicitor

Job Description

Salary: Up to £70 000 plus discretionary bonus

Seven Legal is a rapidly growing legal consultancy advising early stage, high growth companies.

Our team works with companies raising funding rounds from Seed to Series B, offering strategic advice and efficient execution at each stage of their growth cycle. 

We are looking for a mid-level associate to join our team on a permanent basis in London, focusing on transactional corporate deals and some commercial work.

This role offers excellent prospects for career progression and broader non-legal experience for candidates seeking a hybrid legal and commercial role in the start-up space.

Seven Legal prides itself in having a friendly and transparent culture with a realistic work life balance, and the annual chargeable hours target of 1,000 hours is testament to this.

The associate will report directly to Bill Cogan, the Founder of Seven Legal. Bill has extensive experience working with founding teams in early stage companies across a broad range of sectors from incorporation to exit, and is looking for a motivated and proactive lawyer to join his dynamic and growing practice.

  • English qualified lawyer with excellent academic credentials 

  • 3-5 years experience in the corporate department of a leading City or regional firm or comparable in-house environment

  • Strong technical knowledge of the legal framework of a corporate transaction and key areas of corporate law

  • Excellent written communication and drafting skills

  • Ability to develop and maintain strong relationships with clients 

  • Strong communication skills and the ability to adapt style in order to connect with clients
