Varied Capital Markets and Corporate Role – Elite US Law firm

Reference: BD6825EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Banking/Finance - Capital Markets
Regarded by many as the finest US firm in London, this elite brand has a strong presence in Europe, Asia and the Americas that encompasses an emerging markets brand at the top of the market. The group act for headline issuers and underwriters on some of the most significant equity and debt transactions, as well as M&A and financing globally. They seek a mid-level lawyer keen to keep a broad practice across all forms of public and private securities offerings, as well as other transactional work.

The firm is known for the strength of its partnership and stellar quality of its lawyers; it prefers to make home-grown partners and only hires lawyers if it thinks this is a realistic possibility. Further, the quality of work undertaken is second to none and the firm consistently works on the most complex high value matters. In London, its lawyers tend to be less compartmentalised into strict legal disciplines than at, say, magic circle law firms. Therefore, you might find yourself involved in IPOs, high-yield, bond offerings, M&A and leverage finance transactions as well as debt restructurings and strategic investments, though knowledge of all is not a prerequisite. A good capital markets base is preferred, however.

Together with offering the most varied high-end work in London, the firm offers a realistic path to one of the most highly prized law firm partnerships in the world. Needless to say, the firm will reward you with excellent compensation; in return, you must have excellent training and academics, and a demonstrable academic interest in the area.
