White Collar Investigations, Senior Associate - Asia
We are under instruction from a Magic Circle firm to locate an experienced White Collar Crime lawyer for its expanding Asian disputes practice. Their team advises U.S. and international clients including multinational companies, financial institutions, and other financial service providers in criminal and regulatory enforcement proceedings relating to potential economic sanctions, export control, anti-corruption, and anti-money laundering, while also offering compliance with associated regulatory regimes, including data privacy and employee-related matters.
With between 5-10yrs call, applicants will be admitted to practice in New York or Washington DC and hold a US LLM or JD from a top-10 law school. Additional PRC/HKG qualification would be well received, but not pre-requisite for the role. Native mandarin speaker preferred, given the client facing nature of the hire, and while location is flexible in the short term (Hong Kong / Singapore would be fine) the successful lawyer will look to be based out of Shanghai long-term, becoming the POC for mainland China when it coms to White Collar matters.
Given the strategic nature of this appointment, our client is looking for an individual who is not just technically excellent but has the ability to offer strategic counsel to clients, taking responsibility for highly sensitive matters, often working closely with colleagues across international offices to achieve the optimum results. This is very much a leadership position and offers enhanced career advancement long-term.
A comprehensive financial package is available (New York rates).
