Company Profile:

You’re a senior commercial solicitor who’s already got at least 8-10 years’ experience under your belt.

Perhaps it’s time to take the next step in your career?

If you’re someone who has a great track record as a commercial lawyer, especially if you have experience with technology contracts, then we’d love to speak with you!

Why should you choose to apply to Harper James?

First, we know what we’re best at: Harper James is designed specifically to support entrepreneurial businesses from start-up to scale-up and beyond. That’s our sweet spot and it’s likely to be yours too.

Second, you can work where and when you like. Our lawyers usually work remotely but all have access to meeting space in Birmingham, Cambridge, London, Manchester, Oxford and Sheffield.

Third, we work really hard to ensure our lawyers still feel part of a team so they can collaborate, share ideas and enjoy each other’s company. The remote set up allows people to work from wherever they want, to give people the flexibility they need, for whatever reason. But, we want people to feel that they belong to an ambitious company and that their contribution towards our growth is recognized individually and as a team.

Next, because we’re ambitious. We’re looking to treble in size over the next five years. If you want to build a team, we’ll support you and we will generously recognise and reward you for growth in that team too. As long as you want to work with entrepreneurial businesses, we will discuss any idea you have to do it.

 The bottom line

  • No client following is required. We care about experience, expertise and commitment to our clients. We have the clients and the work - we just need your skills.
  • Work where and when you want. Full time, part time and flexible hours are available.
  • An environment with no politics, no bureaucracy and a great team of people who all play a fundamental part in the success and continued growth of the business.

Recognition and reward

Remuneration structures, pension, holiday and healthcare are equivalent to much of the UK top 100 firms.

A little more about Harper James

Toby Harper, our founder and CEO, previously worked in-house for a well-known venture capital firm. During his time there, he saw first-hand the barriers growth businesses faced in accessing quality legal advice, and decided something needed to be done, so he created Harper James.

We are disrupting how legal services are provided to businesses. Some people say that we’re the Netflix of the legal world because the firm’s innovative approach to delivering highly tailored and accessible legal advice is considered genuinely different to the establishment.

We’re in our seventh year and hitting £6m turnover. We plan to triple this income by 2025. Attracting the right talent is key to delivering our strategy.

That’s why we’d like you to apply for this role If we think you’re going to be a fit, we’ll be in touch within a week to kick things off with an informal chat.
