Our client is looking to fill a Senior Associate role in their London Transactional Tax team.

The role will include, but is not limited to;

  • Advising on a broad range of Tax matters, including M&A, Finance and Real Estate transactions (with a particular focus and specialism on Real Estate Tax).
  • The ability to manage matters and work with minimal supervision.
  • Advising on the Tax aspects of private M&A transactions (and related transactions and structuring) from the perspective of a variety of stakeholders, including financial sponsors, corporate shareholders, management teams and finance providers.
  • Advising on financing transactions, real estate transactions, restructurings and management equity incentives.
  • Tax advisory work on IPOs, and other fundraisings and capital market transactions.

The work of the Transactional Tax team frequently crosses over with the work undertaken by the other sub-groups within the Tax team - being the Asset Management and Incentives and Remuneration groups - and Associates will have the opportunity to collaborate with other members of the Tax team in relation to work of this sort and where appropriate, to undertake work which crosses over into these areas. In addition, there may be opportunities for client or overseas law firm secondments from time to time.

Knowledge, Skills & Experience required:

  • A very strong academic record.
  • An England & Wales qualified Solicitor (preferably with experience from a City law firm).
  • Experience in transactional Tax (M&A, Finance and Real Estate), commensurate with PQE level.
  • Substantive Real Estate Tax experience would be seen as an advantage.
  • An ability to demonstrate proactivity and good transaction management.

This is a transactional role rather than a pure structuring role, and candidates would therefore be expected to have experience of and/or an interest in drafting and negotiating transaction terms and documents, as well as structuring and advisory work.

The firm places a high value on learning and development for Associates. This is achieved through structured formal training, including weekly whole department meetings and supplementary training for Junior Associates and also through the room sharing system, where rooms are shared between a number of Lawyers of varying degrees of seniority. Added to this, there is a programme of cross-departmental training, in which Tax Associates can participate and regular "milestone training" sessions, aimed at giving Associates training in a variety of skills relevant to their level of seniority.

The firm would also be open to discussing flexible and agile working arrangements for the right candidate.

For a confidential chat about this, or other roles which we are handling, please contact Laura Klass.

Please note that where a level of preferred experience or qualification is indicated, this is a guideline only and does not preclude applications from candidates with more or less experience.
