Private Equity Lawyer – Immediate Partnership – to £250,000

Reference: SP7082EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Corporate - Private Equity
The London corporate team at this exciting and fast growing law firm is underweight. Across the network corporate accounts for over 15% of the firms total revenues, and there are ambitious but highly achievable plans for growth in London. The team places themselves very much in the mid-market and have been very successful building a profitable practice being able to reduce rates and, due to the structure of the firm, work at higher profit margins.

The team in London needs a dedicated private equity capability and you would be the key partner in London. The firm will consider a senior associate as a partner and has a good track record of supporting such promotions. Across the network there is a large and well recognised team of private equity lawyers who work with both management teams and mid-market private equity houses. The ideal individual would be a private equity specialist but the partners are very reasonable in terms of their expectations and will definitely consider senior associates with broader corporate and private equity expertise.

There are very strong relationships with well-regarded private equity houses which you would immediately inherit.
In relation to this hire there will be flexibility on the requirement for a following, the firm is not expecting delivery of a private equity house but it would be ideal if there were strong relationships which would benefit from a move to this law firm. The brand will definitely support portable relationships, as there is a simple success based story to be told.

The firm is favourably flexible in relation to remuneration at the partner level.
