Superb opportunity for a senior banking and financial services lawyer with experience in complex lending transactions to join a top private bank.

I have just been exclusively instructed by a well-established private bank on a fantastic permanent senior legal counsel role.

My client is looking to hire a senior level banking and financial services lawyer who has a background in complex lending transactions relevant to the private banking/wealth management business. This is an excellent opportunity to join a new specialist legal team within the new Group Legal Function of the bank which is exclusively dedicated to the legal support of the Global Product and Services team, which includes credit products, including providing legal advice and supporting its various projects across the organisation.

The successful candidate will focus on providing legal advice on complex credit matters for the bank and will advise the Group Credit Committee on the credit structure and will work with colleagues in lending management, credit risk and with the lending specialists to draft the documentation and provide legal sign off on the deal.

The role holder will also be responsible for:

  • providing quality legal advice on a variety of structured finance/lending transactions as part of the normal lending business of the bank, as part of the Group Products & Services specialist legal team to enable the bank to identify, manage and report legal risk pertinent to such transactions/business;
  • managing their own workload in close collaboration with the Head of Legal;
  • pro-actively engaging with the business/stakeholders; and
  • working within a specialist team collaborating with colleagues across the Group Legal Function, including the legal teams across Europe.

I'm keen to speak with senior banking and financial services lawyers who have experience working on the relevant products and services of a private bank, with a focus on structured/multi - jurisdictional element lending. Experience in complex lending/financing instruments, other products and services experience - e. Distribution Agreements, Private Equity funds, UCITS funds, Alternative funds and products would be beneficial as would any exposure gained in international lending transactions, security arrangements and related documentation standards.

Please email me at for a confidential discussion about this exceptional opportunity.
