Job Description

Salary: £70,000

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.

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.
