“Attack of the bean-counters” is how The Economist has described the Big Four’s advance into legal services over the last few years. Whilst not quite lining up an all-out assault on the London legal market their plans to grow have been ambitious and are paying dividends. The case is compelling - working with existing business lines in their current model, they offer a combined, more efficient service to clients. And herein lays the opportunity.

This firm is recruiting into its corporate and finance legal practice. Whilst the firm has previously focused on leveraging its real estate contacts and providing a more generalist finance service, the group is now broadening its outlook and are now looking to piggy back their PE, M&A and Debt Advisory teams to offering clients a combined legal offering in this area, building a leveraged/acquisition finance practice. This offering will be aimed across the market, providing its branded service to propco’s, investors, funds, mid-tier businesses and MNCs, HNWI, multi-national banks, startups, and other FS businesses.

To help to spearhead this, the team seeks a lawyer, qualified in England & Wales, with at least 6 years’ PQE with excellent borrower side experience across leveraged, acquisition and general finance. You will join a relatively small finance team, as part of the larger corporate group, and will be involved at every stage, from instruction to ongoing facility management. The role will afford you excellent personal development, access to clients and business development and an escape from the traditional law firm model. A compelling opportunity.
