Further information

A leading wealth manager is currently looking to hire a commercially focussed and practical hands-on lawyer to become part of this team of experts. With experience of working in a similar financial services framework a regulatory or commercial skill set, you will develop to offer first rate legal advice to the business.  You will work on the structuring of transactions and regulatory issues such as the FSA’s COB rules. Preparing the client communications and advising the business on regulatory change in relation to operational processes, account activities and products will all form part of this role. You will assist with corporate & employee solutions, flexible benefits, pensions and offshore bonds and associated tax efficient vehicles. As part of a small team, there will be the opportunity to get more involved in specific areas you are particularly interested in, such as regulatory change, policy and lobbying.

We are looking for someone with the potential to make a step up within a short time frame and someone who thinks the right way as an in-house lawyer is more important than an exact skill set. Broad financial services and regulatory knowledge would be the most suitable background with at least 6 years post qualified experience. Alternative backgrounds could be funds, financial services litigation or commercial contracts. This role offers the opportunity to work closely with the business, learn directly from leaders within your field and carve your own role according to your interests.
