URGENT HIRE - Funds Lawyer (4-6 PQE) – Offshore Law Firm, Hong Kong
We are mandated to locate an ambitious lawyer with a comprehensive background in funds work for the Hong Kong office of a leading offshore law firm. This hire can be either permanent or on an initial fixed term contract basis (12 months).
Possessing between 4-6yrs post qualified experience, candidates will be admitted to practice in a Commonwealth jurisdiction and ideally a bilingual Chinese/English speaker (though this not absolutely essential). Due to travel / relocation restrictions, applications from those already based in Hong Kong will be given preference.
The work on offer covers the formation, structuring and restructuring of all types of open and closed end funds, including hedge funds, private equity and venture capital, real estate and infrastructure funds as well as a number of international family offices. This includes advising on a number of new investment funds for the largest and most high-profile wealth managers in China, as well as assisting with the launch of multiple investment funds in support of the Belt and Road initiative.
In return for your effort and commitment you will become part of a dynamic and collegiate team that offers its lawyers lots of responsibility and autonomy with no lack of support and practice development. Further, the financial package is very attractive while there are genuine opportunities for long term career progression.
