This is a private equity role with one of our key clients, a Top US Law Firm.

The Role

The new hire will join the private equity team in London. You will receive a varied workload and whilst working within a small and close-knit team in London, your individual input will be valued. The London private equity team also works closely with other departments in London and throughout Europe and the United States.

Training and Development

The firm has a sophisticated training programme that includes both in-house and external seminars and training sessions. We also pride ourselves on providing our lawyers with "on-the-job" training and constructive "real-time" partner feedback. The formal training programme includes:

  • Regular know-how meetings.
  • Weekly and monthly training seminars and workshops for all levels covering legal topics relevant to the firm’s practice areas and skills. These are presented by partners and associates and external specialists, QC’s and other professionals.
  • Regular group meetings for offices in Europe and Asia.
  • Monthly group meetings for all offices (by video).
  • Targeted training sessions (such as an annual, inter-active seminar on financial covenants from an external presenter)
  • Live video-links to seminars presented across our network of offices.

Pro bono

The firm strongly encourages its lawyers to assist, through pro bono work, those individuals and groups unable to afford legal services. A number of pro-bono opportunities are also available to our lawyers through our pro-bono programme. We are affiliated to LawWorks, a registered charity which supplies pro-bono projects to the firm.

The successful individual will have a strong career history to date and currently work for a well-regarded law firm. Excellent written communication and drafting skills are required as well as the ability to demonstrate initiative.
