Mid-Senior Funds Associate (Elite US Firm) - Hong Kong
Elite US law firm seeks Associates at all levels for its expanding funds practice in Hong Kong. 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.
Hailing from 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).
To learn more about this opportunity, please send your details in confidence to email@example.com or apply via this website. Due to the volume of applications received, only applicants that adequately match the job spec will be contacted.
