An outstanding opportunity has become available for a proven corporate paralegal looking for a step up in responsibility to take on a broad and challenging permanent position at a US law firm as they look to expand their London office. The hire would actually be the first paralegal hire within the London team and therefore represents a unique challenge, supporting two teams of fee earners across an exciting range of high-end transactions in the capital markets space.

The role would see you sit within the capital markets team but support the wider corporate division and would get you involved in a huge range of large-scale, cross-border listings and IPOs with a heavy focus on equity capital markets offerings and the associated documentation such as prospectuses. You would also gain excellent exposure to international M&A deals as well as various elements of corporate governance and maintenance. As the sole paralegal, you would be afforded a huge degree of responsibility and the role promises to be very diverse and keep the work fresh. The team is highly regarded in the IPO space and acts as a trusted advisor to many of the top-tier investment banks.

To be suitable for this role you must have completed the LPC and have a strong academic record all-round. You will also need a minimum of 2 years of specific paralegal experience in corporate law acquired from a comparable team - ideally a City law firm - and have gained significant experience working with equity capital market products in particular. You should also have an excellent work ethic to effectively support a broad team of lawyers across various corporate sectors, the ability to work efficiently to deadlines in a busy team and a passion for this sector of law.

If you feel you are suitable and are interested to apply for this paralegal position, please feel free to get in touch to learn more.
