Private Equity Lawyer 2-4 PQE (carried interest option)
Our client is a highly profitable private equity fund with a focus on companies with an infrastructure or cleantech theme. Their 3-strong Legal Department comprises two lawyers and a Paralegal. The gradual introduction of fundraising and fund launch work to the Senior Legal Counsel has reduced his ability to focus on primary investment transactions, meaning there is now a need for a lawyer with 2-4 years PQE gained from a leading US or UK law firm to join in a role as primary coverage lawyer for the investment desk, supported where needed by the SLC.
This role involves the structuring, documentation and advisory work around transactions and is extremely front-line. An outgoing personality and strong technical skills are both essential for success in the role. Having recently got to exit stage with several investments, the business now aim to ensure employees have a carried interest in the fund. This role would be eligible for carry, which can be transformative, allowing you to participate in the profits made by the business in a way outside of base and bonus. The bonus itself is considered extremely generous at circa 50% even at this level.
An exciting opportunity to do front-line work, rely on supportive colleagues and a receptive business desk and to enjoy both autonomy and support where needed.
