Harper James Solicitors is a growing, ambitious commercial law firm like no other. We are growing our commercial technology team and have a number of exciting opportunities for junior and senior lawyers from 2+ years PQE.
Harper James is designed specifically to support entrepreneurial businesses from start-up to scale-up and beyond.
Toby Harper, its 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.
Harper James aspires to disrupt the model for which legal services are provided to businesses. The Netflix of the legal world, the firm’s innovative approach to delivering highly tailored and accessible legal advice is considered genuinely different to the establishment.
Harper James is in its 8th year and hitting a £6m turnover. We have plans to triple this income by 2025. Getting in the right talent to support our growth is a key part of our strategy.
Our lawyers work on employed and flexible basis, working remotely with access to meeting space in Birmingham, Cambridge, London, Manchester, Oxford and Sheffield.
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. As long as you want to work with entrepreneurial businesses, we will discuss any idea you have to do it.
This opportunity is suited to solicitors of 2+ years PQE with wide ranging commercial technology, digital media and IT experience from an in-house or private practice background.
If you like working with driven entrepreneurial businesses providing innovative and creative solutions in the field of Software, Hardware, Information Security, Privacy and Cyber, Fintech, AI and Machine Learning, IoT, Business Intelligence, Consumer Tech, Facilities Management, Digital Commerce, Mobile Apps and Gaming, Smart City technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Greentech, Cleantech, Blockchain, Healthcare and Biotech (to name a few) we’re interested in you.
Plain English commercial advice and strong negotiation and drafting skills are a must. As is a good handle on IP and data protection issues in technology contracts to work with our specialist business teams.
We’d like to start the process by inviting you to an informal chat with our Head of talent, Leah Horwood. Be assured that all conversations are confidential and we will act discreetly throughout the process. You can call Leah direct or arrange a convenient time to speak by emailing her.

Our commercial lawyers are based in or close to major cities across the UK, providing expert legal advice to clients both locally and nationally.
We mainly work remotely, so we can work with you wherever you are. But we can arrange face-to-face meeting at our offices or a location of your choosing.
