  • Presentation of these materials, alongside identifying issues of importance and providing legal advice
  • Work with and oversee external counsel globally on various legal matters

The ideal candidate will have graduated from a leading university and be qualified as a UK solicitor. They should have experience in a top tier law firm, in-house corporate or have practised as a funds lawyer, preferably with experience in FCA rules, investment funds and various foreign investment advisor laws and regulations.  Great organisation is a must; the appointee will be required to meet tight deadlines whilst managing multiple projects.
