Job Description

This leading U.S law firm is looking to hire an experienced lawyer to join its London office as a professional support lawyer to support both its financial restructuring and insolvency, and its real estate finance teams. This is a key hire, as the financial restructuring and insolvency team has not had PSL support before. The PSL will monitor developments in the legal and business environment, in order to keep both the groups and their clients up to date and identify areas to develop the Firm's reputation and practice; provide legal and practical expertise to support the Groups' practices, both through responding to fee earner queries and through the mentoring of junior lawyers; help to create, develop and manage the Groups' collection of forms, precedents and research materials; organise, design and deliver Group training; work with Group members and the Marketing Department to identify opportunities to develop business from new and existing clients; and provide other support as needed.

To be considered for this role, candidates must have experience from having worked in a rated restructuring and insolvency team, and have been exposed to multi-jurisdictional, cross border transactions involving consensual / non-consensual restructuring and insolvency processes, in particular UK schemes of arrangement and US Chapter 11, and (ii) to both conventional secured real estate lending and financing of the acquisition of loan portfolios, in both cases, in multiple European jurisdictions. While the REF experience is not a necessity, this role will require the individual to pick up a working knowledge of these areas.
