Harper James is a growing, ambitious commercial law firm like no other. We are growing our commercial technology team and are looking for a senior commercial technology (10 years plus experience).
Harper James is a national commercial law firm designed to support entrepreneurial businesses from start-up to exit. We aspire to disrupt the model for which legal services are provided to businesses. The firm’s innovative approach to delivering highly tailored and accessible legal advice is considered genuinely different to the establishment.
Harper James was founded in 2014 and continues to grow at c40%+ year on year. Today we are more than 117 people, who will support more than 2500 businesses this financial year and will turnover around £13m. We expect to double in size over the next 3 years.
Our lawyers work on an 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 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.
This opportunity is suited to a senior commercial technology solicitor 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 Acquisition, Leah Horwood. Be assured that all conversations are confidential and we will act discreetly throughout the process.

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.
