Finance NQ-3 PQE – Leading Magic Circle Firm – Very Varied Role
This Magic Circle firm, known for its elite client base, is seeking a junior finance lawyer to join its top-ranked banking and finance department. The department is consistently recognised as a top tier practice and offers its junior finance associates a range of work that is rare amongst the top firms.
This role will offer you a uniquely broad workload and you will be encouraged to work with a number of partners specialising in different finance areas, with the freedom to choose your own specialisation(s). You will have the opportunity to undertake general banking, leverage finance, DCM, derivatives, structured finance, and securitisation work, as well as asset, project, and property finance.
You could therefore expect to undertake a wide variety of finance work (if you wanted to, of course), and you would also have the opportunity to work with individual clients on their different transactions. This would give you the chance to form closer client relationships and develop a better understanding of clients’ businesses.
With an extensive training programme in place to support and nurture junior lawyers to partnership, your prospects at the firm are wholly transparent. For those who don’t make partner, there are few better springboards than this firm for lawyers looking to move to top tier banks and FTSE 100 corporates in top-level roles.
The successful applicant will have up to 3 years’ PQE gained at a top UK or US firm with a leading finance team, and whilst you may be a September 2016 qualifier, trainees due to qualify in March 2017 will not be considered. This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented junior finance lawyer to undertake a real variety of finance work and benefit from top quality training.
