Business Lawyer

Lausanne / Zurich, Full Time

If you’re an ambitious legal professional trained in Swiss law and passionate about transforming the way legal solutions are delivered, then this is for you. 

Forget stiff legal offices. Working with LEXR means being part of a modern, motivated and inclusive team. We’re a team of legal, tech, and business professionals dedicated to designing new legal solutions, re-thinking legal delivery, and creating a better user experience for businesses. We are now looking for a motivated and hungry self-starter with the work ethic, passion, and grit to take on the challenge of building a better future for lawyers and customers alike. 

What you will be doing

  • Advisor to tech entrepreneurs: As a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and decision-makers, you will provide fast-growing startups and tech companies with the expertise and counsel they need to achieve their vision. 
  • Expert: You will further develop your core expertise in IT contract law, data protection or IP law, and any other field relevant for tech companies. 
  • Leader: We encourage personal growth by building leadership skills in real-world settings. You will lead projects and manage multi-disciplinary teams. 
  • Business (wo)man: You will spot growth opportunities, develop new products and help extend LEXR’s customer base through marketing and business development activities. 

What is required

  • Legal education: Our work is international, but based on the principles of Swiss law, so a completed Swiss legal education is a must; bar exam, LL.M. or know-how of other jurisdictions a plus. 
  • Language skills: You will be working with both local and international customers and proficient English is a must, but most matters will pertain to the Swiss market, for which you need fluent German skills. 
  • Experience: 1-2 years relevant work experience. It’s essential that you have already worked as a business lawyer or in-house counsel and can demonstrate work experience and knowledge in the areas of IT contracts, data protection and intellectual property. You know how to draft terms and conditions, review a data processing agreement or set up a software license. 
  • Growth mindset: We’re looking for lawyers that see opportunities despite being trained to focus on risks – strike the right balance and be driven for continuous personal and professional growth.  
  • Attention to detail: Providing actionable legal advice goes much farther than reciting the law. At LEXR, we dig deeper and work harder to provide the best solutions to our customers, which requires diligence and attention to the specifics of every case.  
  • Business sense: We advise businesses and, in order to provide actionable and valuable legal advice to businesses, you need to have at least a basic understanding of how the business world works. 
  • Team spirit: You will be working side by side with customers and team members alike. You are humble, positive, open, and enjoy getting to know what makes people tick. 
  • Tech affinity: We are 99% digital and constantly test out new tools to improve our work environment and customer experience. You do not have to know how to code, but understanding and adapting new technology easily is a must.  

What you will get

  • Exciting work: We do much more than automating the mundane part of legal. You will advise the tech companies of the future, be it in robotics, blockchain, AI, big data analytics, SaaS, NFT or venture capital. You will work with the entrepreneurs and decision makers directly and your advice has an immediate impact on your customers. 
  • “Inhouse” experience: You will have the opportunity to be a vital part of the team of some of our fast-scaling customers, potentially even in the role of a temporary inhouse counsel.  
  • Become an entrepreneur: We don’t believe in micro management. Every LEXR team member is encouraged to take ownership of their work, bring in their own ideas, and have a positive impact.  
  • Team spirit and open structures: When you join LEXR, you become part of a driven, self-motivated, stimulating and welcoming team that works together to achieve amazing things. We foster comradery with regular team events and trips to startup hubs (we’ve already been to Lisbon, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Swiss alps). Also, expect your voice to be heard from day one and flat hierarchies. 
  • Competitive pay: You will receive a highly competitive, above market-standard salary. 
  • Location independence: We offer state-of-the art offices in the heart of Zurich, but also a fully digitized work infrastructure to set you free to change your work setting from time to time. Free membership is included. 
  • Training and development: A legal career is all about continuously striving to learn, grow and get better. We invest in our people with regular training sessions and courses that encourage them to thrive.
