Finance Associates

Multiple roles for finance associates at a US firm that has an exceptional track record of making its London associates up to partner.

This US firm is entirely atypical in that it has what amounts to an in-house investment banking function that will see you work alongside analysts and assist with the origination of new off-market opportunities. With stellar revenues in London and the US and hires from the leading Wall Street firms, this US firm has multiple opportunities for finance associates to join its London office and to work with some of the most dynamic, vivacious and charismatic lawyers in the City.

These opportunities will see you involved in transactions as a leader and with the widest field of vision into all areas of finance. You will be encouraged to lead on deals, to be keenly involved in business development, to work on all aspects of finance (including securing and structuring senior and mezzanine financing, negotiating and financing debt buy backs as well as NPLs) and to understand what the deals are about at a macro level and why the client wants to do those deals rather than just enabling them to be done. Character is key. You will be dynamic, charismatic, energetic, spirited and with a sense of humour. Often referred to by those who have joined as “I didn’t realise that working at a law firm could be like this”.

You will be working alongside analysts and working so closely with clients (predominantly investment funds) that you will feel as if you are operating as in-house counsel. Opportunities for partnership or for secondments abound.

The successful lawyer will work closely with the hiring partners acting for large funds, family offices and developers that invest in or finance real estate and asset backed transactions.
