Corporate Finance/ECM Partner/Team
Our client the London office of an international law firm which has established a profitable and rated finance practice in recent years. To date it has focussed on its core practice areas which include a number of areas within finance such as project and infrastructure finance, structured finance, general syndicated and bi-lateral lending, mezzanine finance, trade and commodities finance and receivables finance. They also have a strong disputes practice covering High Court litigation and International Arbitration with some notable specialist areas.
The partners in London all come from large international law firm backgrounds and have expertise in numerous established and emerging/frontier markets including Russia/CIS, sub-Sahara Africa, Maghreb, the Middle East including Israel, Asia and Latin America. They also have strong links in Europe to Italy, France and Spain.
Their clients include inter-alia financial institutions, trade banks, import/export banks, funds, corporate borrowers, VC companies, private equity houses, hi-tec companies, natural resources companies, smaller emerging market banks and trustees.
The firm's Executive Committee has taken the decision as a part of its core strategy to broaden and expand its London offering. As a result, they are committed to hiring a partner/team to work closely with some of their key European, US and emerging market clients and affiliated law firms. You will have a background in corporate finance/ECM, and private equity would be useful. Capital markets experience to include AIM and other secondary market listings is an important component of the role. The firm is in a position to plug you into their stream of work coming out of the aforementioned markets and the issue they currently have in London is a lack of expertise and a leader to exploit the significant opportunities that they have.
This platform would suit an ambitious solicitor seeking to lead a new practice area and further enhance their reputation and network in a firm that is focussed on its core strengths and seeking to capitalise on the internal opportunities that they are currently missing.
Outstanding opportunity to join a firm that is an attractive alternative to the usual offerings of the large international law firms.
