As an Associate in the team, you would manage all aspects of corporate and venture capital work relevant to IP-rich, high-growth technology and life sciences companies, overseeing and developing other members of the team. You would be expected to advise clients at all stage of a company's life-cycle, so much be as comfortable advising on early-stage company formation and pre-seed financings as you would advising on later-stage venture and growth funding rounds and exits and specifically M&A. You will be acting for a range of clients including entrepreneurs universities, founders and investors, and mature companies. There will also be opportunities for you to dive forward a particular sector focus.
