Job Description


A global law firm which operates as one partnership and represents leading international businesses from FTSE 100 corporations to mid-market and emerging enterprises; advising clients on cross border transactions, international commercial disputes and regulation.


The firm is seeking a senior level finance lawyer to work across both the Real Estate Finance and Leverage Finance teams in the London office and who can help build the practice and broaden and deepen client relationships.

The role sits within the Financial Industry Group advising domestic and global banks, asset managers, insurance companies, investment banks, and investment management companies and advisers.

In Real Estate Finance they act for an impressive list of UK, European and US lenders and count many of the world's biggest real estate investors as clients. Experience of acting for real estate lenders would be an advantage.

The team acts on all types of real estate financing and deal structures including origination, securitisation, servicing, syndication, workout and enforcement of loans secured by real estate assets throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and beyond.

They handle all types of investment and development, senior and participating loans (including bridge and mezzanine loans); and the wider real estate finance group acts regularly on the formation and structuring of asset-specific and pooled real estate funds and vehicles, limited partnerships, structured legal entities, and joint ventures of all kinds.

The European leveraged finance team is made up of international specialist lawyers experienced in acting for leading mid-market private equity sponsors, banks and alternative credit providers.

The work done by the leveraged finance team in London includes both sponsor and lender side transactions, with a focus on the lender side towards acting for the alternative credit providers.


The successful candidate will have a great deal of exposure to complex and high profile deals and enjoy day to day interaction with clients.

The partners work closely with all of the team to provide hands-on mentoring and training whilst giving lawyers enough freedom to develop.

A great deal of support is provided to help establish and develop client relationships on an individual and team-wide basis.

Previous finance experience from a well-regarded City team is required.

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.
