This is a leading prestigious London law firm, ranked in the highest tiers across several practice areas. The firm has grown substantially in recent years due to their collaborative efforts in attracting lawyers from top-flight City law firms - doing so by bringing in the highest quality of work and providing the support needed for their lawyers to thrive. The firm has over 200 lawyers and a very low staff turnover due to their culture, high-quality work and the provision of continuous training and development. The Firm This leading London law firm deals with the same quality of work as much larger City firms without all the disadvantages associated with being a small cog in a big machine. You will find that with smaller teams, it is common for NQ's and Partners to be working side by side. Fee earners of all levels have the opportunity to be involved with business development. It is common for fee earners to gain such a level of exposure they gain PQE beyond their years. You will find a creative, supportive, dynamic, forward-thinking, and progressive culture. They invest heavily in their staff, with industry-leading training and a real platform for progression. The work quality rivals top-flight City firms; however, you will find there is a good work-life balance with the flexibility you would not usually benefit from at this firm's competitors. The firm is seeking a Banking & Finance Associate 3-5 PQE in London. The work will involve both lender and borrower matters. You will handle a broad array of banking and finance matters, and it is important that you have 'some' real estate finance experience. (Ideally, you will have worked in a dedicated banking and finance team with exposure to real estate finance rather than a property lawyer dabbling in the finance side.) If you're not in a dedicated team already, but banking and finance work represents the bulk of your caseload, then please don't hesitate to apply. This role will suit someone wanting to progress their career with a prestigious yet relaxed atmosphere. * You will be a Banking & Finance Associate 3-5 PQE * You will ideally have qualified from a top City or West End practice (although applications will still be considered from a regional heavyweight background, for instance) * This role comes with excellent prospects for progression. * You should ideally have achieved a 2:1 or above in your degree. * Salary is above market rate and negotiable depending on your level of PQE, plus an excellent benefits package. This is an excellent opportunity for a Banking & Finance Associate to join this leading firm based in London's West End.
