Contract Type

Our client is a leading international banking practice which acts for financial institutions, major corporates and private equity funds on a wide range of transactions. Most of the deals are multi-jurisdictional and in the top tier of transactions in the leveraged finance market typically on behalf of leading creditors and debtors. 

The team operates at the cutting edge of the leveraged financial markets and the lawyers have in depth experience and understanding with the latest market products. 

Candidates will have a keen interest in the business side of the market and have an understanding as to why the leveraged finance and private equity industry’s structural challenges have become more focussed. Multiples are at all-time highs and challenges facing the market include understanding how funds can generate the expected attractive returns.
Our client understands that funds are turning to a mix of tactics and strategies. Portfolio management is being acutely assessed in an area where the margins for error are tight and getting tighter. They understand that technological change is altering industry norms which will result in threats for those firms that are not at the cutting edge of the industry and opportunities for those that are. 

Clients are taking advantage of current market conditions whereby both equity and debt capital inflows continue to increase. On the equity side, years of record-level fund-raising has resulted in significant liquidity in the industry. Debt markets are also highly buoyant offering the opportunity to clients of the firm to fund transactions with high levels of low-cost leverage. 

Coupled with robust markets for speculative bonds and leveraged loans, their investor clients expect higher yields to augment their returns in the current sustained low-interest-rate environment. 

Candidates will possess both high level technical expertise in areas such as leveraged or acquisition finance or private equity. In addition to your experience you will have an active interest in the markets in which you operate and a desire to keep up-to-date with market developments and their implications. When dealing with clients you will be expected to contribute to business planning and modelling and show and understanding of the clients’ strategic direction.  

Excellent opportunity for an ambitious associate to operate at the highest level in this market which will bring significant opportunities in the future.
