Our client is a Magic Circle law firm with a well established and highly collegiate international network of offices.  Ranked in Band 1 in Chambers Global across all practice groups for 2017 including banking, finance and restructuring, its Moscow office is known to be a well managed, and pleasant place to work.

Following an internal relocation, it is now looking to hire an additional mid to senior level UK/Australian/New Zealand law qualified lawyer into the team.  Working alongside several other common law qualified lawyers on high level deals both in Russia and the wider region, you will enjoy a varied client-facing workload with high levels of autonomy.

Your profile should be as follows:

- English/Australasian qualified lawyer;
- Excellent academic history;
- From 3-6 years' experience in banking and finance at a well regarded law firm in London, Sydney, Auckland or another major financial centre;
- Russian language skills/prior Moscow based experience not required.

On offer is the opportunity to undertake a challenging career-defining role as a key member of the international team at a market leading international finance practice at a Magic Circle law firm in Moscow.  In keeping with market standards, you will receive a generous expat compensation package well above City levels, plus a full monthly housing allowance, gym membership and an annual flight home, all at the low rate of 13% income tax.
