Job Description

My client is a very well known international law firm, consistently ranked highly by the legal directories. In a time when some City practices are struggling, this firm has gone from strength to strength and has had a very strong 12 months. They currently have a couple of openings for general banking & finance lawyers in the highly regarded London banking group.

The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years PQE from a highly regarded banking practice, and should have a solid grounding in finance transactions. They are willing to be quite open in terms of background and will consider candidates with different kinds of banking experience from any sector, however exposure to leveraged finance transactions would be particularly of interest. One of newer partners in the group also has a speciality in trade finance so any experience in this area would again be an advantage.

This is a chance to join a very successful and highly rated banking team where you will have the chance to work on as broad a range of matters as desired. Unlike at some Magic Circle and other City teams, there is a true variety of work on offer. There is also more of a work/life balance on offer as this is a far cry from the intense hours culture of the US firms and some Magic Circle firms. Despite this, the quality of work is not compromised and this team is involved in some excellent, high value, global transactions.

This team is generally made up of lawyers form top 20 law firms and tier 1 and 2 banking practices, who were attracted by the breadth of work on offer here as well as the relaxed, collegiate working environment.
