Funds Lawyer 4-10PQE+ GIBRALTAR
Our client seeks an experienced level funds lawyer upwards of 4PQE+ although other experience levels will be considered. The team is talented, collegiate, and handles only top draw work. This is a key hire to directly support the team leader. You will be sufficiently experienced to take the lead when required and manage transactions particularly when the team leader is away.
Ideally you will have experience of fund formation and structuring funds. Exposure giving tax advice in relation to funds would be an added bonus. Candidates with both a private practice and in-house background will be considered. Hedge fund and private equity fund and previous offshore fund exposure would be advantageous. The ideal candidate will be able to display solid regulatory knowledge, e.g. MiFID/MiFID II. Fin Tech exposure such as anything to do with blockchain or crypto currencies such as bitcoin or initial coin offerings (ICOs) etc would be useful but is not required.
The successful candidate will need to be UK qualified to practice in Gibraltar as she/he will not be able to sign off on fund launches without UK qualification.
Although funds exposure is preferable, candidates with premier law firm transactional exposure such as solid corporate or banking exposure and exposure to off-shore structures, who would be able to up-skill quickly and gain funds exposure, will be considered.
