We’re looking for a legal intern for our financial markets practice, who is eager to learn and supports our financial market related matters and the development of our practice.

Legal Intern - Financial Markets

We're hiring!

  • Expertise: You will be able to focus on corporate and financial markets related matters and work with experts in the field. Our client projects range from startups setting foot in the domestic financial and crypto industry, to innovative entrepreneurs raising capital via share tokenization, to regulated financial intermediaries seeking constructive solutions.
  • Team spirit: A team is much stronger than the sum of its individuals. We foster team spirit with regular team events and trips to startup hubs (Lisbon last year, Tel Aviv this year). Also, expect your voice to be heard from day one and flat hierarchies.
  • Training and development: To boost your knowledge and ensure highest quality legal advice for our clients, we have initiated the LEXR Academy. Curriculum: Legal writing & rhetoric, business legal basics, negotiation skills, business 101, sales & marketing, emotional intelligence & conflict resolution, productivity & tech tools, project management & leadership.
  • Central location: We have our offices in the heart of Zurich, close to many shops, restaurants, train stations and tram stops.

What you will get from LEXR

  • Research: Your support will be required for every aspect of a financial market participant’s business life cycle. You’ll help with research on relevant financial market regulations, regulatory applications, and innovative solutions for interesting client cases.
  • Applications and opinions: You’ll provide input into and assist with drafting applications to supervisory authorities and legal opinions on financial market innovations.
  • Productization: LEXR focuses on productization. Especially in the field of financing opportunities we see great potential and have already brought our first products to the market. You’ll help develop them further and assist with internal capacity building.

What you will be doing

  • Fluent German and English: You will be working with both local and international clients, but most matters will pertain to the Swiss market, for which you need fluent German skills.
  • Experience: It’s great if you have already completed an internship before. However, the key trait we are looking for is a growth mindset - someone who has a sense of curiosity, the desire to challenge the status quo and try new things.
  • Availability & Timing: You are interested in a long-term engagement during your studies (6+ months); ideally, you’re available about 2 days per week.
  • Team spirit: You will be working side by side with clients and team members alike. You are humble, positive, open, and enjoy getting to know what makes people tick.
  • IT affinity: We are 99% digital and constantly test out new tools to improve our work environment and client experience. Proficiency in MS Office is a must, any additional IT skills are a plus.
