Co-Founder and CEO – Dubai


Harper James is looking for a truly entrepreneurial Co-Founder and CEO to lead its expansion into the GCC. Harper James is a full-service commercial law firm like no other. We champion ambitious businesses, enabling them to access top-tier legal advice when they need it most. The Harper James model of remote-working lawyers, clever use of technology coupled with unique subscription plans, enables us to provide cost effective business legal services without compromising on quality. Our model is disrupting the legal services sector and we have experienced consistent and significant year on year growth since we started only six years ago. As a team of just over 60 people, we will support well over 1,000 businesses this year. However, notwithstanding our growth so far, we are more ambitious than ever and intend to more than double the size of our business within the next three years. To facilitate and support our ambitious plans, we are looking to expand into a number of strategically chosen international jurisdictions.  We have the playbook to replicate our success, we just need the right person make it happen. What does the ideal candidate look like? We are looking for an ambitious, commercially focused and entrepreneurial leader. You must be willing to roll your sleaves up and get stuck in with every element of the business including regulatory compliance, marketing, sales, recruitment and fee earning. You must be a UK qualified solicitor based in Dubai and have a good understanding of the sort of legal services that SMEs require and the legal services market more generally within the region.  You must have an appreciation of the weaknesses in the models adopted by traditional law firms and an understanding of how the legal services market is evolving more generally.  You do not need an established following, however a network of VC contacts and VC backed businesses would be a huge advantage. We are interested in hearing from candidates from three years post qualification experience.  What can we offer you?  You will receive a significant share of the equity in this new venture and in exchange we expect your investment to be the time, effort, energy and skill to make this business happen. You will be given all the tools to make this business successful, along with the support of our established marketing, business development, finance and operational teams plus all the working capital required to make things happen. 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. Our commercial lawyers are based in or close to major cities across the UK, providing expert legal advice to clients both locally and nationally. 13th Floor , Piccadilly Plaza , Manchester , M1 4BT 2-5 Velocity Tower , 1 St Mary’s Square , Sheffield , S1 4LP
