Job Description

This stellar U.S law firm is looking to hire an acquisition finance lawyer between 2 and 5 years PQE to join its relatively compact, yet punchy team in London. The practice is borrower focused, and they handle a significant amount of acquisition finance mandates for a range of prestigious sponsors, in addition to advising investment grade corporates. The team also undertake some restructuring and high yield debt work, and they certainly see themselves as generalists.

Whilst they are a leading U.S firm, the work life balance is much better than most others, with the average hours being billed, sitting at circa 1,700 pa. Opportunities for progression are good, and there certainly is a flat hierarchical structure, with the partners getting stuck in and encouraging the associates to be client facing and to assist in business development.

Candidates need to be familiar with loan products and whilst it's not a perquisite, it would be good to have experience of leveraged buyouts. In addition, to this, a strong academic profile is essential.
