We’re hiring! Consultant Solicitors

About the role

We’re looking to expand the number of consultants we work with to provide legal advice to our small and start-up business and consumer customers.

We’re particularly interested in people with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Startup law (e.g. advising tech startups on all areas of setting up their businesses);
  • Commercial law (e.g. everything from terms and conditions for a new website to franchise agreements and software licensing agreements);
  • Corporate law (e.g. start-up equity issuances, SHAs, founders’ agreements, basic restructurings and small scale M&A); and
  • IP law (e.g. registering trademarks).

We expect that you’ll:

  • work remotely (we’ll send you referrals which you can deal with in your own time and when it suits you);
  • be experienced in your area of law with at least 3 years’ PQE;
  • hold a valid England and Wales solicitor’s practising certificate; and
  • support our mission of providing simple and affordable legal services.

It would also be great to hear from anyone thinking about returning to work after a period away (e.g. maternity leave) but are, for example, finding that traditional private practice isn’t flexible enough or just won’t work for them.

What we’re not:

  • A traditional law firm. Rocket Lawyer is modernising the way legal services are delivered, increasingly automating legal advice and building a large scale platform for a network of lawyers to work with small business and consumers online to provide affordable legal advice.
  • We can’t advise on Reserved Legal Activities or immigration matters.

Essentially, if you want to work remotely when it suits you, Rocket Lawyer has the work, the back office functionality, and the insurance. You can also service your existing clients via our insurance and back office.
