Corporate/Private Equity - Emerging Markets of sub-Sahara Africa
Our client is a large international law firm with full-service offering covering all of the main and emerging market jurisdictions. Their private equity team has extensive experience of advising sponsors and funds on their own investments and co-investments with other parties.
They act on behalf of a wide range of clients including sponsors, funds, alternative and multi-asset managers and family offices. They work strategically with their collaborators on fund formations and portfolio management, and buy-outs through to exit. Backed up by a team of specialist regulatory and investment fund lawyers, they cover a broad range of sectors in line with some of their other core practice areas such as financial services, energy & infrastructure, TMT and life sciences and healthcare.
In addition to their presence and activity in South Africa, they are developing their network in other key sub-Sahara Africa jurisdictions including key target markets in East and West Africa. As a result, they are keen to add additional lawyers into their team who can demonstrate both first class experience gained in the environment of a large international law firm or possibly those who are already on the ground in these key SSA jurisdictions with leading legal 500 rated firms and seeking to now relocate to London with their experience gained on the ground in Africa, coupled with their high-level network of clients.
Those at senior associate/counsel level or existing partners are likely to be of interest. Excellent opportunity to join a top ranked firm which is committed to further developing its Africa practice in London.
