​Join a highly ranked Private Equity team within an international law firm.

The Opportunity

Our client is offering the chance to be exposed to a broad remit of funds work from formation, to restructure, transactions, and everything in between. There is significantly less pigeon-holing for associates and as such this will suit a lawyer looking to gain a wider exposure of work and the opportunity to contribute at a more senior level.

The firm boasts a growing client list of top funds which continues to propel the growth of this team, which is widely considered as one of the up-and-coming practices in London. You will be working alongside ranked and market leading partners who are experienced in developing high quality associates, many of whom have advanced internally within the team.

About You

You will have a minimum of three years PQE, either in the UK or a common law jurisdiction, with a strong background in funds formation, restructures and secondaries.

The brief is to seek individuals with a real willingness to get stuck in and contribute in an environment driven by teamwork. As such, you will be exposed to a number of partners across the team, as well as cross-functionally across the firm.

Bringing a strong attitude and proving to be a cultural fit is equally as important as the technical skills.


Work life balance is considered to be very good at this firm, with flexibility readily available, as well as number of benefits designed to reduce burnout and improve the longevity and retention of its employees.

This will suit someone who is seeking to be challenged by work that they may not have seen before, achieving both balance and career progression, without sacrificing quality of work, nor a very strong name to add to the CV.
