A leading international law firm.
A fantastic opportunity for a lawyer to join on an interim basis as a Professional Support Lawyer (PSL), in the firm's London- based Financing practice.
The financing practice is supported by a team of 6 PSLs; each specialising in one or more core areas of finance practice, assisted by a pool of dedicated knowledge paralegals who work alongside the fee-earning finance lawyers.
This role has arisen due to parental leave absences among the PSL team and excess workflow, and you will provide support predominantly on Banking and Leveraged/Acquisition Finance, but also with some R&I matters.
An experienced lawyer with in-depth experience of high value loan finance and restructuring transactions and up to date knowledge of market documentation, current hot topics and key negotiating points.
Projects will involve a mix of internal and client-facing know-how activities as well as internal and external training, pitches, websites and a variety of writing, editing and publications work on topical issues.
Experience of leveraged/high yield lending and intercreditor terms, while not essential, is an advantage.
The role is for a fixed term of 12 months and is full time although applications for a part- time role will be considered.
Flexible working arrangements are available.
