Funds Associates to Counsel (Elite US Firm) - Hong Kong
Elite US law firm seeks Associates at all levels through to Counsel for its expanding funds practice in Hong Kong.
Hailing form a top tier international law firm, candidates will possess a superb educational background from the US, UK, Hong Kong or Australia/NZ (JD, LLM or LLB), excellent English drafting skills and a strong interest or experience in funds work. This is a great opportunity for junior lawyers to make the switch to funds and for more senior candidates to take a prominent position in the development of the practice going forward.
While candidates with fluent Chinese language skills are preferred, the ability to read, write and speak English to a high level of fluency takes priority (though expectations are that more senior lawyers will be bilingual English/Mandarin Chinese and take an immediate client facing position).
Offering applicants significant exposure to the structuring and formation of private equity and venture capital funds for Asia-based managers, especially in China and Hong Kong, primarily covering Asia-based investment advisers and institutional LPs, the successful candidates will become part of a growing team that looks to reward its lawyers both financially (full New York / Cravath package) and in terms of enhanced career development & progression.
To learn more about this opportunity, please send your details in confidence to firstname.lastname@example.org or apply via this website. Due to the volume of applications received, only applicants that adequately match the job spec will be contacted.
