Global cutting edge client in the innovation space seeks a German qualified Litigator to help build a future where everyone and everything can move independently. If you have the curiosity, passion, and collaborative spirit, come work for this client, and move the world forward, together.

They seek an ambitious Senior Counsel to cover the German legal operations based in the Berlin office while working in close collaboration with colleagues from across the EMEA Legal department.

·      Be an active partner to the business on products development and marketplace efficiencies.

·      Understand, interpret and apply current regulations as applicable to the client’s business models in Germany.

·      Effectively and efficiently manage outside counsels to achieve regulatory and policy objectives.

·      Work hard but have fun doing it!

WHAT YOU NEED

·      8+ years of legal experience on German-speaking countries, ideally mixing international law firm and in-house experience
