Application for the Position of Lawyer

Dear Head of Recruitment,

As a Corporate Lawyer with 6 years of experience advising start-ups through to global corporations, I apply with great interest for this opportunity.

I am currently a Corporate Lawyer at Sterling, Johns & Partners, where I am a member of a small yet exemplary legal team. Mirroring your requirements, I:

  • Review, draft, and negotiate complex commercial agreements, licenses, custom development, IP agreements and platform services agreements for large enterprise and strategic customers
  • Represent and support start-ups and scale-ups with government, third-party, and public-related matters
  • Advise on legal issues and risks, approval processes, policies & procedures, IP, and business strategy

In addition to my experience, I hold a Juris Doctor (JD) from Oxford University. I have a robust reputation for being tough yet empathetic, people rather than profit-focused, and for my extensive knowledge of structuring complex commercial transactions and IP ownership frameworks.

I have loved every minute of my time at Sterling, Johns & Partners. As they are relocating their office to Aberdeen, I am now seeking a stimulating opportunity closer to home.

Please find attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Emilia Carvallo
