As part of an international push to build out their funds coverage they are looking to hire a high caliber Partner (or Counsel) to join them at a time when they are looking to commit and invest significantly in the practice area.

They advise across the asset class on the full range of matters, going beyond fund formation and fund raisings, acting as true business partners to their clients.

The client is currently oversubscribed for PE work and whilst they are broadly asset-class agnostic that area of expertise would be to your mutual advantage.

  • Counsel with 7 years of experience in funds at a top firm who are interested in becoming Partner and growing a book of business.
