This leading brokerage house is looking for a bright, ambitious lawyer to join their small but growing team of lawyers. 

Working closely with the business, you will be exposed to a broad range of legal issues.  Key responsibilities will include drafting and negotiating customer-facing documentation and third party commercial contracts, advising on regulatory developments, litigation, assisting with intellectual property issues, and liaising with external lawyers.

This is likely to be your first move in-house, although you will have ideally gained some in-house secondment experience.  You will have trained and qualified at a top City law firm and have excellent academics.  A minimum of 2 years' PQE is required with a preference for candidates from a finance, corporate or commercial litigation background keen to transition into a broadly commercial role.  

The company offers great work-life balance in a supportive team environment that will give you autonomy and the opportunity to work with senior leaders in the business.
