A top US law firm with a strong international presence and arguably the best Private Equity team in the UK has an exciting opportunity for a Paralegal to join their Corporate PE team.

The Team

The team is made up of four partners who are all highly ranked, a small number of associates and three paralegals. The team highly value the paralegals, so much so you will be named on deals and have a high level of client contact.

The Role

You will have a high level of responsibility and manage with limited supervision the private equity portfolio. This requires exceptional administration, organisation and attention to detail skills and someone who really enjoys client contact.

Duties the successful paralegal can look forward to include:

  • Preparing and proofreading documents
  • Distributing document packs to clients
  • Answering queries and sending follow up documentation to clients
  • Preparing share capital tables, group structure carts, company information tables, and checklists etc related to each portfolio company
  • Managing transaction bibles
  • Performing searches on Companies House and drafting and filing forms
  • Drafting ancillary documents such as board minutes, director resignation letter and stock transfer forms

The Requirements

Corporate paralegal experience is essential and it is anticipated that at least 6 months is needed to be able to hit the ground running. However the firm are open to if this has been gained at another US law firm, a City law firm, or a highly regarded regional or boutique firm. As this is a unique role, they will provide full training on the portfolio management side. 

A strong interest in private equity would be beneficial, and a willingness to work long hours where needed.

Alongside the opportunity to work on some of the most high profile and interesting private equity deals the successful corporate paralegal can also look forward to working in a supportive and friendly team, and be financially rewarded - it is possible to double your base salary with the fantastic overtime on offer.
