How many times do you hear people say „I should“, „I have to“ or „I can‘t“ without anybody questioning if that’s actually true? Way too many times in our opinion. We believe that if we‘re willing to explore our full potential and look beyond the obvious, there are always many more options than we originally assumed. And if we‘re bold enough to tackle these opportunities, we can do great things.

Do you believe in this too? If yes, how about joining a like-minded team? We are also open to unsolicited applications at any time.

As the guys currently outnumber the gals in our team, we especially welcome applications from women.

We are looking for a

Senior Legal Counsel (Swiss Qualified)

to reinforce our team and share our passion for startups.

Who we are

EMBARK.LAW is a boutique law firm for startups, growing businesses and investors, providing legal services under Swiss and U.S. law. It‘s our mission to help our clients – innovators who refuse to settle for the status quo and relentlessly explore new opportunities – achieve the awesomeness they are aiming for. EMBARK.LAW is a young, mobile and innovative business, just like our clients.

We are based in Switzerland and work in German, English and French.

What we offer

  • Inspiring work: You will work in the exciting field of Swiss and cross-border corporate law with the best clients ever – people who say “I can” and “I will” instead of “I can’t” and “I should”.
  • A great team: We show up for each other and for our clients.
  • Excellent growth opportunities: As part of our small team, you are close to the action and can help shape the development of EMBARK.LAW from the start.
  • Network: You can drop into our extensive national and international network of contacts in the legal and startup scenes in Switzerland and internationally.
  • Remote work: This is a remote position. For the most part, you will be able to work from home or from another suitable workspace.
  • Flexibility: We don’t believe in rigid structures – you set your schedule yourself.
  • Part- or fulltime: You can work part- or fulltime.

What we expect

  • You have the mindset to work with young companies in a young law firm: You operate with a bias toward action, a growth mindset and team spirit. You are curious about new technologies and working with startups, and you are ready to go the extra mile for our clients and the team.
  • You are admitted to the Swiss bar and have experience in corporate law – ideally in the startup world.
  • Remote work requires a self-reliant way of working and conscious, open communication.
  • You are proficient in German and English (both at least C2) – this is a strictly necessary requirement!

If you are interested in joining us, please send us your CV/resume.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Barbara, Michel and the EMBARK.LAW team
