Private Equity Solicitor, min 1 yrs PQE, required by an elite global law firm serving leading companies, financial institutions and governments worldwide.
Their Private Equity practice is a highly integrated, multi-disciplinary group of lawyers who know how to get deals done. Collaborating across their global network, they provide clients with seamless service and deep industry experience, often on complex mandates involving multiple specialties and jurisdictions. Recognized as one of the foremost practices in their field, they are trusted by private equity leaders -established institutions and entrepreneurs, as well as emerging visionaries - to handle market-leading transactions, from strategic add-on deals to ground-breaking, monumental acquisitions.
As an associate in their practice, you will be working in an exciting working environment, handling challenging, time-sensitive deals that demand a dynamic approach and a resilience of character. From the moment you join, you can expect to be working with - and learning from - partners within their team, as well as with colleagues in groups across the firm, including Banking, Tax, Regulatory & Compliance, Antitrust & Competition, Employment, Compensation & Benefits, Intellectual Property and Real Estate. Given the strong cross-border dimension to their work, you will also be interacting regularly with lawyers across their global offices, and travelling to international destinations as required.
As well as possessing excellent academic credentials, you should be commercially-minded, with an enthusiasm for the cut-and-thrust of international deal-making. A confident team player, you should enjoy working as part of a tightly-knit group within their diverse team, and demonstrate a willingness to do whatever it takes to help your colleagues get the deal done. Whilst they as a team operate in a fast-paced deal environment, it is also one where a candidate with the requisite drive and determination will flourish. This collaborative mindset should be balanced with an independent, entrepreneurial spirit that drives you to anticipate clients' needs, and to proactively develop solutions to their problems - both legal and business focused.
