We're looking for a Senior Associate or Partner

Opportunity for Senior Associate or Partner to join small, progressive and fast-growing Technology Law firm, building expertise in data protection and cybersecurity

Are you looking for a successful legal career but feel put off by the “big law firm” route? Are you an expert in IT, data privacy and cybersecurity work? Do you pride yourself on being self-motivated, entrepreneurial and courageous? Do you want to join a progressive, innovative and fast-growing Technology practice as a Senior Associate or Partner? And share in the benefits as part of the team?  If so, we'd like to hear from you.

This is a young, innovative practice which has designed its platform, processes and business model to support smart working and independence for the right kind of Partners and Associates. It has grown steadily and with the profile of technology, cybersecurity and data privacy work increasing, we have the experience, expertise and ambition to treble this turnover in the next three years.

The candidate should have strong commercial law firm (London or Regional), or senior in-house, experience and a proven track record in technology law (ICT/Data Privacy/Cybersecurity), ideally with some client following – if not, the proven ability, confidence and appetite to generate new work, independently or with support.

Remuneration will be competitive – based on salary plus bonuses subject to performance milestones.


Working at ClaydenLaw

The firm, recognised by Chambers and Partners, is unashamedly niche – it only provides ICT, data protection, cybersecurity, commercial and IP legal services. Run as a limited company, it has operated very successfully for the last seven years with minimal overheads, outsourcing all non-legal support functions. Turnover and profits have grown steadily since its inception.

The current team is made up of the founder, Piers Clayden, and two assistants (one is a data privacy specialist and the other a more general technology/commercial lawyer).

Some of the benefits of working at a smaller firm like ClaydenLaw include:

  • Working in an informal, friendly and human environment with no politics and no egos
  • A highly flexible working culture where work/life balance is valued
  • Potential for more rapid advance to partnership and ownership in the firm
  • The opportunity to build a well-respected firm and to say “I helped do that”
  • The chance to shape the firm’s processes and management, and to learn more about the running a small, fast-growth firm


To achieve national recognition as a credible, preferable alternative to mid-market law firms in our chosen area of technology, data privacy and cybersecurity expertise. We are doing this by continuing to bring creative thought and great service to our work with cutting edge clients.
