Swiss Financial Regulation & FinTech Lawyer

Zurich / St. Gallen / Lausanne, 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 entrepreneurs who seek regulatory advice and licensing in Switzerland: As a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and decision makers, you will provide fast-growing startups and established companies with the expertise and counsel they need to achieve their vision in a regulated industry. 
  • Expert: You will further develop your legal and commercial expertise with a core focus on FinTech and DLT, and regularly be in touch with Swiss Self-Regulatory Organizations, Supervisory Organizations and the FINMA. You will be at the cutting edge of innovation in the field, be it all kinds of digital financial services (e.g., robo advisors and algo traders), innovative payment solutions, portfolio and asset managers, and various applications of blockchain technology (from tokenizations of financial instruments and real-world assets to the structuring of stable coin, DeFi, DAO, DEX projects). You will also acquire first-hand knowledge regulations of other jurisdictions, while coordinating expansion efforts of clients into new markets (e.g., the EU, the UK, Singapore). 
  • Leader: We encourage personal growth by building leadership skills in real-world settings. You will lead projects and have the chance (if you want!) to manage multi-disciplinary teams compromising juniors, lawyers and other business/tech people. 
  • 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
  • Fluent German (or French) as well as fluent English: You will be working with both local and international customers, but most matters will pertain to the Swiss market, for which you need fluent German (or French) skills. 
  • Experience and interest: You should demonstrate a clear interest in the Financial Market Regulatory field, and preferably around 2 years of experience working as a lawyer or in-house at a company in this or a closely related field. As we’re operating in a fast-paced environment, you need a healthy dose of curiosity towards the business models of our clients to keep up to date with the latest developments in legal and tech. Our clients value us for our hands-on approach and practical experience – ideally, you also have some user experience navigating the world of embedded finance solutions, innovative payment services, digital assets and wallets, exchanges and the like.
  • Qualification: You need a legal background/degree. Bar admission is a strong plus, but not a necessity, especially for applicants that have good experience in the regulatory field. 
  • Attention to detail: Providing actionable legal advice goes much further 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 minutiae 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. 
  • 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 blockchain and FinTech companies of the future and work directly with the entrepreneurs and decision-makers.
  • 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 competitive salary package with a market-standard base salary, and the possibility to access to our employee participation plan.
  • Location independence: We offer state-of-the art offices in Zurich, Lausanne and St Gallen, but also a fully digitized work infrastructure to set you free to change your work setting from time to time. A 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.
