STRUCTURED FINANCE SOLICITOR, 1-4+ PQE * CAREER PROSPECTS * CITY OF LONDON
Salary: c. £125,000 to £160,000k
Invest in your long term career by positioning yourself with a business that will give you the tools and platform you need to make partner.
From the outset, associates at this prestigious international firm are encouraged to prioritise business development activities and to hone their commercial awareness. Building your own practice over time is of paramount importance, if you aspire to be a partner, and it pays to start develop the right habits early if you want to achieve this goal.
Your chargeable hours target is intentionally lower than at competitor Magic Circle and Silver Circle firms, and certainly lower than other US firms, freeing up time for you to put into practice the training you are continually given on the business development side. To that end, you will be entrusted with plenty of direct access to clients, and you will be supported each step of the way as you strive to raise your profile as an aspiring expert in your field.
In addition to the business development focus, excellent training, and sensible hours, other aspects that set this opportunity apart from peer firms include the organisation’s busy active social scene, whether in terms of sporting groups or informal or formal evening events, the firm’s commitment to diversity, and equally importantly the quality and breadth of the work itself.
As a member of this team, you will encounter a complete range of top end structured finance work, working closely with partners recognised as being amongst the best in the business. The firm has a renowned CMBS and RMBS capacity, a busy auto loan, trade receivables and credit card receivables securitisation practice, and an enviable track record in distressed asset acquisitions and disposals. The team acts for an impressive investment client list on large scale, complex transactions.
This role will suit someone who is confident, business-minded, has keen partnership aspirations, and wishes to work alongside leading lights in the industry undertaking cutting edge deals. You should have excellent structured finance experience already, including at least one year of pqe with a highly regarded firm in London.
We are not run of the mill recruitment consultants. Our trusted advisor status extends to the key decision makers at a complete cross-section of the legal market. We work in close partnership with Magic and Silver Circle, Top City, US, international, West End and niche firms in London. We also assist lawyers and firm private practices elsewhere in the UK and overseas with their career and staffing objectives.
We are proud to have exclusive supplier relationships, and preferred supplier status, with a number of firms that value our ability to identify the best talent for their business. We are pleased to be able to advise lawyers on career moves to firms that are not advertising their openings via other channels.
