PRIVATE EQUITY/PRIVATE M&A/FUNDS COUNSEL OR SENIOR LEGAL COUNSEL
c.4-8 YEARS’ PQE
WELL KNOWN FAMILY OFFICE
4 DAYS OR FULL TIME
We are working with a well-known family office, looking for a talented lawyer with broad experience across PE, funds and private M&A to join the business. The role is a sole counsel position and offers strong career development prospects to General Counsel.
The remit will include a majority of venture backed work, mainly within the tech space: co-investments and direct investments, secondaries transactions, investments into fund vehicles and funds structuring as well as joint ventures and partnerships with sponsors, operators and suppliers, across a variety of jurisdictions including the US. In addition, there will be the opportunity to work on NDAs, supply agreements and advisory matters.
The successful candidate will have a broad range of experience across any or all of private equity, funds and private M&A and will have trained and qualified at a well-respected City law firm. You will have experience of leading transactions and be comfortable negotiating with counterparties. You may have already moved to a buy-side team in-house and looking for the career progression this role can offer. Alternatively, you may be still in private practice but looking to develop your career in-house in a broad, varied role such as this.
Cultural and personality fit will be important: this is a close-knit, non-hierarchical, collaborative team, where Legal has always been seen as adding value and being instrumental to the success of the business. You will be commercially minded, team-spirited and consensual and will enjoy taking ownership of your work. Work/life balance is very good as is the remuneration package.
