Senior Legal Counsel - Capital Markets
My client is a global investment bank, who are looking to hire a VP level lawyer, to join their growing team. The role sits in the front office, supporting the business on transaction execution for their capital markets and structured finance markets business. The role supports the corporate trusts team within the wider markets business, which provide trustee agency services on a variety of transactions.
This is an exciting opportunity, to work in a front office team, doing pure execution and project management on new and existing transactions. The role does not get involved in drafting and sits in a non legal team.
The role would suit a 4+ PQE lawyer, who has experience in corporate trust work, either in a law firm or in-house. The role is very commercial, so would suit a lawyer who is looking to step away from drafting and work in a quasi-legal execution role. The role is broad, covering both capital markets (ECM & DCM) and structured finance transactions such as CDO's.
This is an exceptional opportunity, for a commercial lawyer to step away from full legal work.
