Legal counsel

If you want to work with a variety of exciting legal matters in a fast-paced startup environment, apply now to join FirstVet as Legal Counsel!

Join us in changing how pet care is provided worldwide!

FirstVet is the first truly digital veterinary clinic. We let pet owners meet with licensed veterinarians via their mobile or computer. Our solution contributes to a more balanced and better functioning care process for all parties. By providing a first point of contact for all pet owners FirstVet makes pet care more available, more efficient, and more qualitative.

The role: 

FirstVet is continuously growing and in order to facilitate growth globally - we are now looking to strengthen our Legal team with an additional legal counsel. The role as Legal Counsel at FirstVet is an opportunity to join a fun and innovative company on an exciting journey, revolutionizing the veterinary industry.

The role as Legal Counsel at FirstVet means working with a variety of legal matters in a fast-paced startup environment. You will handle different legal matters but your main focus and responsibility will be on Swedish and internal legal aspects. You will be expected to merge stakeholders expectations and legal requirements into a simple and innovative product, and at the same time apply a comprehensive business legal perspective with our forthcoming growth journey in mind. You will be joining our legal team consisting of you and a Legal Counsel colleague. You will report to the COO but the daily work will be led by your team colleague. Teamwork and a multi-jurisdictional mindset will be part of your daily routine as well as to independently navigate and prioritize among a variety of parties and stakeholders.

This is a full-time role based in our office in Stockholm. However, during this specific time, we follow the local guidelines and therefore work remotely. 

Your responsibilities:

  • Handle customer-facing matters such as Terms of service and privacy policies.
  • Draft and review supplier agreements. 
  • Review, update, draft and structure internal materials such as policies, contracts and agreements.
  • Being the contact person for Swedish corporate and legal matters at FirstVet.
  • Advise and support the organisation in global employment matters.

Who we are: 

You will be part of a fantastic group of people who believes that having fun together in a professional environment will build a long-lasting company culture where everyone gives 100%. We are a young and fast-growing start-up, working passionately to build a high-quality service and an expansive global company. We value personal qualities at least as much as background and experiences.

The person we are looking for: 

To be successful in this role, we believe that you are a team player with a strong business mindset and professionalism. You are a problem solver that knows how to balance structure and flexibility in a fast-paced environment.  You have a humble personality, great interpersonal skills, and an ability to spread energy around you. Apart from that we also believe that you have…

  • A Swedish Legal university degree (a Swedish juristexamen).
  • 2-5 years of experience working in a law firm.
  • Experience from working with Swedish and international contractual law.
  • Experience from working with Swedish and international corporate law.
  • Professional writing and verbal skills in both English and Swedish.  
  • GDPR and data privacy expertise.

Apart from the above-mentioned requirements we consider it a plus if you have... 

  • Experience from working with IP, employment law, consumer and marketing law and/or regulatory questions since you may touch upon these areas.
  • Experience from working in an international setting.
  • Experience from working at a startup company and have an understanding for the fast-paced and flexible environment.

We also see that an interest in animals is nice since we have the pleasure of having plenty of dogs at the office. So, if you want to take part in changing how pet care is provided worldwide – FirstVet might be the right place for you!

Do not wait too long with your application as interviews are held continuously.

So, if you like cuddling with dogs, having sea view coffee breaks (at least in the Stockholm office) and want to take part in changing the veterinary industry for the better – FirstVet might be the right place for you!
