This is an exciting time to join a unique firm and play a pivotal role in its global growth and development. Our legal team uses leading edge technology so that our team can work in locations throughout the UK (and indeed, the US).

For more on Conexus Law, our firm, our values and our culture, please see the accompanying Careers Brochure.

Our Vision

To build a law firm that enables talented and passionate people to achieve an exciting common vision, supporting them to build their careers and to do their best work, in a fun and inclusive environment.

To help our clients unlock innovation in the built environment and the digital world by providing creative legal and commercial advice in order to benefit our clients, our communities and the wider world.

The Role

From day one you will take on day-to-day lead responsibility for providing exceptional, commercial and creative technology/telecoms advice to the firm’s existing global technology client base. These include a “Sunday Times Hundred Fastest Growing Private Companies” cloud integrator, some of the world’s largest data centre providers and a blockchain infrastructure provider operating globally.

With growth as a strategic objective, you will be expected to contribute to the financial and reputational growth of the firm’s technology practice including integrating portable business from your current role and network. You will be given full support from our marketing director to achieve this.

You will work directly with our managing partner while supervising, and recruiting additional members to, a team of associates and consultants. We are open to you introducing current or former colleagues.

In line with Conexus Law’s innovative approach to supporting clients with cutting edge sector and legal advice, you will also join the team developing and delivering new product and service lines.

Who are you?

Ambitious and self-motivated, you will be able to operate independently, as a team leader and as part of a team. You will have an interest in the ‘bigger picture’ at a business and global level. By way of career background, you will be:

  • 7+ years PQE with at least 3 at a top 50 UK firm, or smaller firm ranked in Legal 500/Chambers for technology and telecommunications. This will be the sector area where you committed to fulfil your career goals.
  • Currently or recently in private practice as senior associate, of counsel, director, partner or equivalent.
  • Experienced in some, or all, of the following in the last 2 years:
    • Commercial and IT contracts – ‘x as a service’, software licences, software development, outsourcing
    • Data centre colocation agreements
    • Data privacy and other regulatory advice related to date including data sovereignty
    • Metaverse
    • Cybersecurity
    • Blockchain technology
    • Artificial intelligence
  • Track record in excellent client, matter, financial and people management.
  • A commercial, entrepreneurial outlook to the delivery of legal advice using cutting-edge technology, flexible virtual teams and excellent client relationships.
  • Able to operate across international time zones, including joining client meetings at non-GMT times.

You can be based anywhere in the UK because our hybrid model and use of technology means you are not required to work in a fixed office (although you will need to be available in person for client and selected meetings).

A competitive compensation and benefits package are on offer, dependent upon experience, and equity can be discussed.
