Senior Corporate Lawyer

Berlin, Full Time

Are you ready to transform the German legal market with us?  

LEXR, the fast-growing law firm for tech companies in Switzerland and Germany (30+ people, established for 6+ years) is looking for a hungry & driven corporate lawyer who will help us grow our startup and VC practice area in Germany.  

With the full support of the LEXR team in Berlin and Switzerland, from LegalTech to operations and marketing to HR, you can shape this practice area from the start. Not only will you make a real difference to start-ups and tech companies by providing fundamentally better legal services, but you will also create a better work environment for yourself and the legal team you’ll help build up. Working at LEXR means you can forget stiff legal offices. You’ll be part of a modern, motivated, and inclusive team.  We are now looking for a motivated self-starter with the work ethic, passion, and grit to build a better future for lawyers and customers alike. 


What is required 

Corporate lawyer specialization background: Your core expertise is in corporate law. It’s essential that you have an excellent academic track record in the field of corporate law and can demonstrate knowledge in questions surrounding corporate and VC topics. 

Fluent German & English: You will be working with both local and international customers. Fluent English and German skills are a key requirement for this position. Unfortunately, we can’t consider any applications that don’t meet this precondition.  

Location: Although we encourage remote work from time to time, this position requires you to be mostly in Berlin. You will help set up a team of new people and actively pursue business opportunities on the ground.  

Drive and ambition: As the head of a new entity, drive and ambition is a must. Despite your German colleagues and the Swiss teams’ full support of LegalTech, marketing, operations, and HR matters, you need the grit, persistence, and execution power to ensure the practice area takes off the ground.  

Leadership skills: You don’t only have the strong drive and strategic vision to push the new LEXR branch forward, but also the skills to coach team members and lead multidisciplinary teams. 

Growth mindset: We’re looking for lawyers who see opportunities despite being trained to focus on risks – strike the right balance and be driven for continuous personal and professional growth.  

Business sense: We advise entrepreneurs and established corporations. To provide actionable and valuable legal advice to businesses, you need to have a good understanding of how the business world works. 

Team spirit: You will work side by side with customers and team members. You are humble, positive, open, and you enjoy knowing 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; additional IT skills are a plus. 


What you will get  

Become an entrepreneur: Take matters into your own hands and build a team and location. Experiment, learn, grow, and have a positive impact on the local tech ecosystem and your team.  

Competitive pay: You will receive a competitive salary package with a market-standard base salary plus equity.  

Support & coaching: You will grow a recently started practice area, but you won’t be on your own. While your team members and legal leaders will coach you on best practices in legal delivery and client management, you will also have full business and tech support: Marketing & growth, HR, accounting, tech support, and legal automation included.  

Exciting work: We do much more than automate the mundane legal part. You will advise the high-growth companies of the future and work directly with the entrepreneurs and decision-makers. 

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. 

Location: Although Berlin is a requirement for your base location, everyone at LEXR is set free to change work environment from time to time – whether that’d be from the mountains, the sea, or anywhere else you feel most productive.
