Financial Services Regulatory Lawyer-New Group-All levels

Reference: BD8881EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Banking/Finance - Financial Services
As the legal team at this leading global professional services giant continues to grow, its next step is to build a financial services regulatory group. With the hire of a well-known partner imminent, they are able to gain instructions on work that’s ancillary to existing business – growing the team out of the organisation’s existing client base and taking on work that would traditionally be thrown off by those clients, as well as independent instructions. The growth potential is significant, and the organisation is marked by many to be at the forefront of disruption to the traditional legal services model.

The FS team works alongside the existing legal, advisory and consulting teams and can therefore combine its offering to clients, either on existing matters, or on pitches – providing a comprehensive risk and consulting service - something that the traditional law firm model is unable to do. As you would expect though, they are just as able to offer standalone legal advice.

Beginning their entry to the financial services market by focussing on the asset management industry, the longer term aim is to provide a full service offering to banking & capital markets and insurance clients as well. The team is therefore keen to speak to mid-senior lawyers with experience of the asset management industry and the implications of AIFMD. Of course, additional experience of MIFID II and the wider FCA regulatory regime on a pan European basis is preferable.

The aim is to hire three lawyers, one junior, one mid-level and one mid-senior. If you are lawyer qualified in E&W, have between one and nine years’ PQE in a leading financial services regulatory practice, and are interested in working with a business that is at the forefront of a legal services revolution – offering a cross-sector, solution based service - sure to cause huge disruption to the traditional model, we want to hear from you.
