Perfect role for a commercial contracts lawyer who is passionate about disruptive technology in the financial services sector.

With financial services and technology forming two of the most prominent and fastest evolving industries in the UK and worldwide, the interplay between both of these sectors is an especially exciting and dynamic area of concentration for this law firm with a market leading reputation for commercial contracts.

Working in close collaboration with the firm’s financial services regulatory experts, this specialist fintech commercial team is considered one of the very best in the business.  Given their enviable track record handing instructions of the utmost complexity, they are now the automatic go-to practice for established and start-up tech providers and purchasers in the finance world, particularly when it comes to challenging mandates requiring innovative solutions to novel issues.

As an integral part of this cutting-edge team, you will advise on all manner complex collaborations connected with payment services, cyber currency, crowdfunding, blockchain, online & mobile banking.  Examples of recent work include advising on collaboration between a blockchain software development company and an international fintech business; and advising a financial institution on a major IT transformation project to facilitate its expansion into a key market with leading-edge tech as its USP.

Aside from exposure to an outstanding client base and top quality work, the other key differentiator for this private practice relates to the people and culture.  Some of the brightest and most creative lawyers choose to work here rather than the Magic Circle/US heavyweights, and they prefer to foster an environment with a positive work/life balance, an emphasis on training & development, and an active social scene.
