I am working with a top tier US law firm who are looking to hire a Corporate M&A Associate to join their team in Hong Kong.
The ideal candidate will be an England & Wales qualified M&A associate, with between five years' and seven years' PQE, looking to relocate to Hong Kong on a permanent basis.
Candidates should have strong M&A experience and be able to work across a full range of M&A transactions, joint ventures and private equity transactions, often involving complex multi-jurisdictional issues. They are specifically looking for candidates who are comfortable speaking to clients in Mandarin (the ability to read and write in Mandarin at business level is an advantage but not a pre-requisite).
They are looking for candidates who are committed, enthusiastic, versatile, highly collegiate and able to work well in teams in a collaborative environment. They place a high importance on excellent academics and candidates should also be commercially minded and comfortable dealing with clients.
In particular, they are interested in candidates from UK magic circle firms and from UK or US firms, with leading M&A practices.
Market leading salary on offer.
