Wilson Sonsini is one of the world’s leading law firms for tech companies, and we are committed to helping UK and European tech companies compete and win on the global stage.

Since opening in London, we’ve focused on offering Silicon Valley-style business and legal advice to UK and European tech companies.

We understand what it takes for tech companies to thrive, so we’ve built an integrated, US/UK-qualified, transatlantic deal team under one roof, with the core strategic skill sets that UK and European tech companies need to grow their businesses. More than half of the attorneys in our London office are US lawyers, a highly unusual set up that brings unique service to our clients.

Our team offers international experience to support the growth of UK and European tech companies—from launching, scaling, and raising capital to exiting via M&A, IPO, or otherwise—with a particular focus on UK and European tech companies exploring US expansion, fundraising, or exit.

Join Our Team

Privacy and Cybersecurity

Our European Privacy and Cybersecurity team works in a highly motivating and challenging environment on exciting, cutting-edge development and expansion projects involving all aspects of UK and EU privacy and data protection law, and increasingly on digital regulatory issues, for leading and innovative companies around the world. We regularly represent clients in high-stakes investigations brought by data protection regulators in the UK, the European Union, the U.S. and around the world.

If you want to help shape the privacy and cybersecurity legal landscape for years to come in a dynamic and thriving practice group, we welcome your application. We are looking for entrepreneurial team players who are enthusiastic and proactive with 3rd-6th years’ post-qualification experience focusing on UK data protection and cyber security law.


Looking for an opportunity to resolve new and challenging tax issues in an exciting and growing practice? Our London office is seeking a solution-focused team player with a flexible mindset and the ability to clearly and confidently communicate. You will build relationships working directly with clients as well as while providing support to our other teams. You will also be able to explain tax issues at a number of levels – switching comfortably between explaining these in pure commercial terms to investors and founders and engaging in detailed technical discussion with in-house tax team members. Your work will involve M&A transactions, venture capital finance, international business structuring for clients which are highly internationally mobile, UK/US advisory work in conjunction with the US tax practice, and funds tax. Apply now if you are UK qualified, hold or are eligible for a valid Solicitors Practising Certificate, have 2-6 years PQE or equivalent experience, and have the passion to take your career to the next level.


Join our dynamic and fast-paced London Corporate team. You will be a collaborative contributor with creative, solution-driven problem solving and client-management skills as well as a desire to actively engage in mentoring and training junior associates. Bring your 3-5 years’ PQE focusing predominantly on M&A to this exciting role. You will preferably have experience drafting definitive transaction agreements and managing all other aspects of a strategic transaction. Knowledge of cross-border M&A and market practice in tech and VC sectors will also be beneficial.

Employee Benefits and Compensation

We are looking for a UK qualified Share Incentive lawyer to join the London office to work with the existing UK Share Incentive partner. You will gain excellent experience and exposure to clients, with opportunities for progression. You will advise the firm’s clients on share option and employee incentive arrangements while supporting the London corporate team in relation to investments, M&A and IPOs. With a focus on UK/US advisory work, you will work regularly with members of the firm’s wider U.S. Employee Benefits and Compensation (EB&C) team on mutual clients as well as with corporate teams across the firm on both advisory work and cross border financings, M&As and other exits. We want to hear from you if you spent a majority of your 2-5 years PQE on employee share incentives and have a technical understanding and knowledge of incentive arrangements for private companies, with a particular emphasis on EMI arrangements, non-qualified plans, CSOP and growth shares. Ideally, you be commercially minded and solution driven with the ability to clearly explain and advise on complex issues.
