Job Details

We're working with a US-headquartered firm which has an outstanding reputation for working with tech businesses at all stages of the development cycle, from seed stage to IPO and beyond. They have assisted several blue-chip high profile technology businesses with their first and subsequent IPOs. Their model in London is to offer "Silicon Valley-style" business and legal advice to UK and European businesses, with a particular focus on UK and European tech companies exploring US expansion, fundraising or exit. In recent years, the firm has attracted a great group of phenomenal Lawyers in London, and they are getting a lot of traction in the City - it is an exciting time to join.

Tax is a relatively new offering in their London office, and an opportunity has arisen for a first Associate hire to join an experienced Partner and assist in building out the practice.

In this role, you'll advise on Tax aspects of M&A transactions and venture capital finance. You'll assist internationally mobile clients with tax-efficient business structuring, and in conjunction with the US tax practice, assist on UK/US advisory work.

To be successful in this role, you will need to be able to work with a flexible mindset, enjoy resolving new and challenging tax issues and be solution-focused. You will also be able to explain tax issues at a number of levels - switching comfortably between explaining these in pure commercial terms to investors and founders, and engaging in detailed technical discussion with in-house tax team members.


In order to be considered, you will:

  • Be an England & Wales-qualified Solicitor with probably between 2 and 6 years' post-qualification experience of corporate tax (including international tax issues), gained in a law firm, accounting firm or in-house.
  • Have a very strong academic background.
  • Be able to, in addition to transactional support, demonstrate a commitment to and relevant experience of tax advisory work.
  • Be ambitious, self-motivated, hard-working, and a strong communicator, and have the ability to work as part of a team or as an individual contributor.
  • Enjoy working directly with clients and building relationships alongside providing specialist support to colleagues in other teams.
  • Have personality, energy, and initiative to take advantage of an exceptional opportunity.

Knowledge of tax issues relevant to growth companies would be beneficial, as would knowledge of UK/US cross border tax issues (but neither is a requirement, provided you have a strong interest in and commitment to growing your knowledge in these areas).

The firm pays top NY rates for Associates. This is a sensational opportunity to join an embryonic tax practice at an elite US firm in London.

Please send your CV in complete confidence to or call David on +44(0)786 077 4391 for a confidential discussion.

Please note that where a level of preferred experience or qualification is indicated, this is a guideline only and does not preclude applications from candidates with more or less experience.
