Structured Finance / Leveraged Finance Lawyer – Major Offshore law firm – Hong Kong

An opening has arisen for a mid-senior level finance lawyer to join the Hong Kong office of one of the world’s leading offshore law firms. Working closely with key Partners you will advise Asia (predominantly HK/China) based clients on BVI/Cayman law in relation to structured/leveraged finance transactions. It promises high-quality work with every opportunity to develop your career.

The firm is happy to look at applicants from around three years’ PQE upwards, although they stress that senior associates looking for a medium-term path to promotion should also apply. You will be admitted in the UK/Commonwealth. Language skills and local experience an asset, but not required.


Life as a lawyer in one of the world’s most dynamic cities is rarely likely to be dull. In the office, you will be exposed to a broad range of high-value international work, often complex and challenging in its nature. You will work in smaller teams, enjoying more responsibility, and you will get plenty of client contact. Experience here is prized everywhere, making this a great career move whether you stay long term or return home. Outside of work, Hong Kong offers as vibrant a social scene as you will find anywhere, not to mention the opportunity to travel easily across the wider region.


The international team at Origin Legal has over 20 years’ experience of helping lawyers to make international moves. For a copy of our international brochure, to find out more about this role or to discuss your options in general, please contact:
