English/Australian/NZ Qualified Banking Lawyer - Moscow, Russia

Our client is a Magic Circle law firm with a leading Russian practice. 

For the past 20 years, its Moscow office has been consistently ranked in Band 1 in Chambers Global across all practice groups including banking, finance and restructuring.  It is known locally to be an exceptionally well managed, and pleasant place to work.

Notwithstanding challenging regional conditions, its dynamic Russian Banking and Finance Practice remains at the forefront of cutting edge cross border transactions.  Representing major European, and Russian banks, and multilateral institutions, it covers the full range of transactional work with a particular focus on syndicated lending, trade/pre-export finance, real estate finance and restructuring matters.  It is well staffed with a combination of Russian and common law qualified lawyers.  

Following an internal relocation, it is now looking to hire an additional mid level UK/Australian/New Zealand qualified associate 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 plenty of autonomy.

Your profile should be as follows:

- English/Australasian qualified lawyer;
- Excellent academic history;
- From 1-6 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 are 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.
