Our client is a growing, ambitious commercial law firm like no other. They are growing and are seeking a Head of Equity Incentives to join them on a permanent basis.


The founder and CEO of the firm, previously worked in-house for a well-known venture capital firm. During his time there, he saw first-hand the barriers growth businesses faced in accessing quality legal advice and decided something needed to be done.


Our client aspires to disrupt the model for which legal services are provided to businesses. The Netflix of the legal world, the firm’s innovative approach to delivering highly tailored and accessible legal advice is considered genuinely different to the establishment. They are in their 8th year and hitting a £6m turnover. They have plans to triple this income by 2025. Getting in the right talent to support their growth is a key part of their strategy.


What they offer


Our clients’ lawyers work on employed and flexible basis, working remotely with access to meeting space in Birmingham, Cambridge, London, Manchester, Oxford and Sheffield (as required). They work really hard to ensure their lawyers still feel part of a team so they can collaborate, share ideas and enjoy each other’s company. The remote set up allows people to work from wherever they want, to give people the flexibility they need, for whatever reason. But, they want people to feel that they belong to an ambitious company and that their contribution towards the firms growth is recognised individually and as a team. As long as you want to work with entrepreneurial businesses, they will discuss any idea you have to do it.
