What you will do as Samaipata’s Head of Legal
The role is very diverse, but we expect your responsibilities will focus on these areas:
1. Lead the legal aspects of the financing rounds on our side. As a seed lead investor you will have to lead the process from term-sheet to money-in-the-bank and coordinate several parties (external advisors, due diligence providers, expert or non-expert founders, etc) following the Investment Committee resolutions. Additionally, during exit processes, you will give legal advice to the Investment Committee regarding LOIs sent to portfolio companies and assist during the whole process.
2. Assurance in portfolio company’s corporate matters: as lead investor and board members of many portfolio companies, you will have to give assurance on corporate matters to the partners involved in them.
3. Deal with routine corporate matters in asset management, funds management and other legal aspects related to labor, regulation, etc with the help of top-tier advisors.
4. Support in Compliance and Internal Control matters
