The firm

Fox Williams offers a unique opportunity to advance your career in a personable, progressive and entrepreneurial environment.  Our people and culture are important to us and central to everything we do. We continually strive to create and maintain a friendly and supportive environment for our staff.   You will quickly get to know everyone from the Senior Partner to the most junior staff.  Whilst we are recognised for our strong culture and investing in our people, we are equally well known for our high profile matters, quality of our work and solving our clients’ most complex legal issues.

The opportunity

We are looking to recruit a junior to mid-level associate (approx. 1 – 4yr PQE) to support our market leading FinTech and Alternative Finance team. This is a unique role which will involve the successful candidate working closely with FinTech and Alternative Finance partner Jonathan Segal, advising both established and new FinTech platforms. Typical clients include UK and European lending platforms (both corporate and consumer lending), challenger banks, open banking platforms and payments platforms.

The role is suitable for an experienced banking and finance, structured finance or DCM lawyer looking to expand their repertoire of legal skills to become a lawyer equipped to service the needs of a technologically-driven financial services market. The work will require a strong knowledge of debt finance and security documentation, but the lawyer will also have the opportunity to expand their regulatory knowledge and work on regulated consumer products and help structure new FinTech products.

In addition, we are offering the opportunity to:

  • Immerse yourself in the wider FinTech community and generate your own network and business opportunities in the FinTech space;
  • Work with the leading customer-facing FinTech brands, such as Revolut;
  • Become part of an entrepreneurial and collaborative cross-departmental team;
  • Responsibilities

    Typical workload would include:

  • Drafting standard term corporate and consumer lending and security documentation for lending platforms.
  • Structuring lending platforms from a regulatory and commercial perspective.
  • Structuring and drafting debt issuances and wholesale funding lines for lending platforms.
  • Drafting regulated commercial agreements, such as platform terms and conditions and FinTech financial products.
  • This unique opportunity to work at the cutting edge of disruptive finance and technology will sit in the corporate and banking team but work closely with the other FinTech lawyers in the financial services regulatory team and the commercial and technology team.
