Job Description

THE FIRM

One of the world's leading law firms, helping clients achieve their goals by combining the highest global standards with local expertise.

The firm's Banking Group is the biggest team in the firm and combines a multi-disciplinary practice which stands out from its competitors for the range, calibre and international scope of the deals handles and the advice provided.

It is significant that the team is client-focused rather than product-focused. This means that they can and will adapt to client needs as their markets change.


THE ROLE


Lawyers in the Banking group have the opportunity to gain top quality experience across the following diverse range of work:

Syndicated lending

Leveraged and Acquisition finance (including some securitisation)

Structured finance

Funds Financing

Sovereign debt rescheduling

Real Estate finance

Project finance and ECA backed financing

High Yield bonds

Restructuring

Lawyers are therefore given the chance to handle a tremendous variety of work.

Much of the work is very innovative, and rarely are two deals the same. So, far from being bound by precedent, you will need to bring fresh, creative thinking to your work.

The group acts as the first point of client contact for complex and novel arrangements.

As a result its lawyers need and will acquire a detailed understanding of other banking and capital markets products so as to manage the delivery of multi product financing arrangements for clients' business and products too.

ABOUT YOU

The team is looking for banking lawyers who have experience in one or more of the areas that they handle.

As well as recruiting from well-respected City and National firms, the firm will also consider candidates currently working in-house at one of the leading banks or financial institutions.

The international flavour of the work is well matched by the firm's multi-jurisdictional environment.

They welcome applications from lawyers from leading firms in commonwealth jurisdictions such as Australia and New Zealand.

In all cases you should have first class legal ability coupled with a practical commercial approach, excellent drafting and communication skills; lawyers must also have strong organisational and analytical skills along with a high level of commercial awareness. A strong academic history is essential.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy. Please note our advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
