A leading law firm based in London are looking to recruit a funds paralegal to join their private equity team.
This would be an amazing opportunity for someone looking to increase their general paralegal experience within a really diverse practice. The team work with a variety of private equity firms and hedge funds both in the UK and internationally, and can be dealing from anything transactional like purchase agreements, to pre-litigation work, and more. You’d be one of two paralegals in the department, assisting on work from trainees all the way up to partner-level.
This funds paralegal role will initially be a 6 month fixed-term contract with the view to extend or go permanent. The partners are really keen to find someone who they can progress within the firm so there is a high likelihood of a training contract being on the cards for the right candidate, and they have taken several of their paralegal’s on as trainees in the past couple of years
The ideal paralegal will have around 6 months experience as a finance/commercial litigation paralegal within a well-regarded law firm or financial services organisation. You’ll also have a strong academic history (2:1 minimum at degree level, and BBB minimum at A-level). Graduates who have a training contract secured for 2019/2020 will also be considered if you can work for 12 months.
