My client is a Private Equity/Venture Capital investment firm based in central London. An opportunity has arisen for a senior level lawyer to join the legal team in a transactional role.

Working closely with the investment team and senior management, your role will be to provide legal support on range of transactions, including acquisitions and disposals, as well as ongoing maintenance and restructuring of the portfolio. The environment is highly collegiate and fast-paced, and the firm is undergoing rapid growth.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic record and at least eight years’ experience gained in the corporate/M&A team of a leading City firm with both domestic and international transactional experience. It would be beneficial to have direct experience of supporting private equity and/or venture capital funds.

The successful candidate must illustrate the ability to support transactions and fund formations in new sectors and/or new jurisdictions with ease. It is also essential to be able to develop constructive, commercial relationships internally and illustrate quickly a “value add” to the business.
