Our client is a City headquartered investment manager that offers a range of long-only and hedge fund strategies. We have been instructed to search for a high-calibre funds lawyer to join their legal team (currently comprising three other lawyers) to support their growing business.

The successful candidate will be responsible for providing legal support pertaining to the creation and maintenance of the firm's Cayman and BVI hedge funds, and Irish UCITS. This includes responsibility for working with the Marketing and Client Servicing team and external lawyers on drafting and updating prospectuses, offering memoranda, KIIDs and other fund disclosure documents as well as coordinating and supporting the registration of such funds in numerous jurisdictions around the world.

The ideal candidate will have gained experience at a top law firm or in-house and have approximately 3-6 years' PQE, although we are prepared to consider candidates outside of this range if they can demonstrate the relevant competencies.
