Funds/Corporate Lawyer 2-8PQE – US Law Firm – New Team Launch
This leading US law firm is one of the largest in the world, and has recently grown its London office considerably with a number of high-profile partner-level hires. The funds group is led by true market leaders, and due to a continuing increase in workflow, the team is now seeking additional associate support.
The team is still relatively small, so there would be plenty of opportunity for growth and progression, and you would also gain high levels of responsibility and autonomy as an associate. The firm has long-since established itself as a real estate heavyweight in the US, and is now looking to mirror this in the UK, and the funds practice in London therefore has a strong real estate sector focus. The role would involve the formation and structuring of various funds, as well as advising on wider corporate real estate transactions such as joint ventures and structured acquisitions and disposals.
The ideal candidate will have between 2 and 8 years’ PQE, and will either be a funds lawyer or a corporate real estate lawyer with funds experience. A previous focus on real estate funds is not necessary, and the team would be interested in seeing candidates with solid general funds experience.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is keen to join a small close-knit team where they can gain responsibility and feel valued. In addition, the firm offers a very competitive salary, and although associates at the firm work hard, it does not have the kind of culture that many US law firms have become notorious for.
