Vacancy Type
Lawyers, Private Practice
Full time

The firm is regarded as an elite US law firm with revenues in excess of $1 billion.  The firm has a number of lawyers recognised in the directories as market leaders. 

The firm is looking to hire a non-contentious financial services regulatory lawyer to lead the London practice.  There are currently regulatory associates in London, so you will be supported immediately.  Although the firm is building a bank side practice, at this stage a purely bank focused regulatory practice is not the ideal fit.  You will work with a leading investment management, private equity and finance team in London and be part of a global regulatory team.  You will provide pure regulatory advice and transactional support.  There is a considerable amount of regulatory work being generated and the firm is currently outsourcing this work to a few different firms.

This is a key area for the firm in London and there is a huge management commitment to this hire.  The firm would look to hire a lead partner who will be mandated to build or the firm would be very interested in an existing team.  In terms of following, the firm is not prescriptive, reputation is more important.

Edwards Gibson has a placed a number of financial services regulatory partners and we are very active in the London regulatory market.  We have a dedicated partner team which has placed a number of leading partners and teams.

Edwards Gibson is retained on this specific role, we have more information about the firm, clients and team so please contact SLOANE POULTON at sloane.poulton@edwardsgibson.com or +44 207 153 4903 or +44 7967 603 402 for a confidential discussion.
