Corporate Partner - Head of Department - US Law firm
Our client is a mid-sized US law firm with an established London office that boasts a profitable and directory rated finance practice. Specific areas of expertise within finance include project and infrastructure finance, structured finance, general syndicated and bi-lateral lending, mezzanine finance, trade and commodities finance and receivables finance. They also have a strong disputes practice covering High Court litigation and International Arbitration with some notable specialist areas.
The partners in London all come from large international law firm backgrounds and have expertise in numerous established and emerging/frontier markets including Russia/CIS, sub-Sahara Africa, Maghreb, the Middle East including Israel, Asia and Latin America. They also have strong links in Europe to Italy, France and Spain.
Their clients include inter-alia financial institutions, trade banks, import/export banks, funds, corporate borrowers, VC companies, private equity houses, hi-tech companies, natural 2resources companies, smaller emerging market banks and trustees.
The firm’s Executive Committee has taken the decision as a part of its core strategy to broaden and expand its London offering. As a result, they are committed to hiring a partner/team to work closely with some of their key European, US and emerging market clients and affiliated law firms. You will have a background in corporate finance/ECM (AIM) and M&A. Equity Capital Markets experience to include AIM and other secondary market listings would be useful. The firm is in a position to plug you into their network where there are untapped opportunities. You will be supported in servicing and developing further your own connections and network. Candidates with some Israeli focus to their practice would be of great interest.
This platform would suit an ambitious corporate solicitor seeking to lead and develop a corporate practice for an ambitious firm with a gap in its London offering.
Outstanding opportunity to join a firm that is an attractive alternative to the usual offerings of the large international law firms.
