Job Description

Although they are headquartered in the US, this firm does not have the same hardcore hours culture that would normally be associated with their Wall Street counterparts (typical hours billed in this team are just 1700 - 1750). They have a relatively small London office which is very down to earth and collegiate - a refreshing working environment in comparison to some bigger US practices. They do however pay a very competitive salary which is beyond that which most top UK practices can offer.

The current requirement is for a general banking lawyer of at least two years PQE to work with a range of partners. This role will be a mix of project finance, real estate finance and other general banking matters. The breadth of work on offer is one of the big selling points about this role. The firm generally is particularly strong in sectors such as technology and emerging markets.

To be considered you should have a solid knowledge of finance documentation, ideally with experience of lending work, preparing security documents and loan agreements, etc. This is a small and close-knit team so you will enjoy excellent exposure to clients as well as very strong scope for upward progression.
