Senior Legal Counsel, Fintech / Payments


The Position

Our client is looking to hire a Senior Legal Counsel sitting either in HK or in SG to join their growing international legal team.

  • This role will primarily be responsible for looking after the global digital payments & clearing portfolio ('Network') alongside related businesses.
  • On a day-to-day basis, you'll be providing legal and commercial advice for daily business operations and general commercial and transactional matters involving the Network Business
  • Strategically, this role will also be responsible for Network growth by working with other internal functions such as Compliance for helping develop a scalable and systematic regulatory framework to help acquire or clear licenses for merchant acquisition
  • Other key responsibilities include advising management strategically and tactically on political, legislative and regulatory developments impacting the Network business and will also involve working closely with relevant functions such as Government Relations and Public Relations
  • You'll also have an opportunity to help our Client grow organically through strategic investments working alongside investment teams

The Candidate

The ideal candidate would have all or most of the following requirements :

  • JD or LLM degree in law. A minimum of [10-12] years' PQE; US, UK or Commonwealth qualified.
  • You'd have experience in-house in card schemes and payments and/or experience within FINTECH industries or businesses
  • Strong regulatory/compliance knowledge and skills, especially in relation to card schemes, FINTECH and the relevant licensing laws and regulations in major jurisdictions

You'll have the chance to help craft and build a new legal function and be on the cutting-edge of developments in the payments space from both a technological and product perspective.


This role is not going to be your standard 9-5. It is going to be intense and it's a pretty fast-paced culture and not for candidates looking for work/life balance in the short-term.
