We work at the intersection of finance and law, providing counsel and advice that support activities across the firm. We handle litigation and arbitration, perform research and due diligence, aid in financing and legal filings, deal with contracts and intellectual property rights that show our commitment to clients, shareholders, and regulators. Whether you're an experienced attorney or a quick learner with a strong interest in financial law coupled with critical thinking skills, our dynamic group might be right for you.

The role is a specialist position in the firm's legal department focusing on the firm's separate account businesses across AM and will be located in the AM legal team in London. While the role would suit a candidate who has knowledge and understanding of the role of asset managers and the services they provide to clients this is not essential. The role includes acting as a member of the AM legal team involved in negotiation of investment management and advisory agreements and related documentation. The role would suit a candidate with experience in contract negotiation.
In addition, and given the wider AM business, it is expected that a key component of the role will also include contributing to the support of other legal issues that arise, particularly in respect of the ongoing development of the firm's growing international business.

  • At least 2 years of work experience in a financial services institution or a law firm.
  • Contract negotiation and project management skills, experience of investment management agreement negotiations preferred.
  • Understanding of the business of asset managers, with a particular focus on separate account services to clients based in EMEA.
