Junior Legal Counsel AML and Fintech

Switzerland / Full Time

If you’re an ambitious person 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 for Fintech and blockchain projects with a focus on anti-money laundering compliance: As a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and decision makers, you will provide fast-growing startups as well as established companies with the expertise and counsel they need to achieve their vision.
  • Expert: You will further develop your core expertise in financial market laws as well as in related areas such as corporate law, crowdfunding and public offerings and any other field relevant for our clients. A considerable portion of the work will focus on Anti-Money Laundering Regulations.
  • Leader: We encourage personal growth by building leadership skills in real-world settings. You will learn how to lead projects and manage multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Business person: You will spot growth opportunities, develop new products and help extend LEXR’s customer base through business development activities.

What is required

  • Swiss legal education: Our work is international, but often based on the principles of Swiss law, so a completed Swiss legal education (BLaw and MLaw) is a must; LL.M. or knowhow 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 French and/or German skills.
  • Experience:It’s essential that you have a demonstrated interest in financial market & technology law but no prior practical experience is required.
  • 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 details of every case.
  • Business sense: We advise businesses with actionable and valuable legal advice; to be able to do so, you need to have 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.
  • IT affinity: We are 99% digital and constantly test out new tools to improve our work environment and customer experience. Proficiency in MS Office is a must, any additional IT skills are a plus.

What you will get

  • Exciting work: We do much more than automating the mundane part of legal. You will advise the companies of the future and work directly with the entrepreneurs and decision makers; your advice will have an immediate impact.
  • 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. This being said, we regularly exchange on the dynamics at play and actively build an environment where these principles are actually put into practice.
  • 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 and possibility for an equity participation.
  • Location independence: We offer state-of-the art offices in Switzerland (Lausanne St. Gallen and Zurich) and Germany (Berlin), but also a fully digitized work infrastructure to set you free to change your work setting from time to time. 
  • 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.
