Real Estate Finance - City - 4+ PQE
New, direct mandate from the hiring partners of a standalone Real Estate Finance practice at a major international firm. This is a rare strategic opening for a REF lawyer to join a leading team with a clear path for career progression. The team has an international, standalone client base and indeed many of the deals they act on are multi-jurisdictional in nature. Another differentiation is that the team deals in quality and not volume, acting on high-value (up to £1 billion) bespoke deals.
Whilst an understanding of transactional real estate is useful, this is a finance position with real estate as the defining asset. The role will involve acting on both lender and borrower side, for a broad range of clients including the global banks. You will get the chance to work right across the spectrum of the client instructions, from the original loan deal to syndicating the loans, and further potentially to securitisation and distressed RE/restructuring.
We would be expecting suitable applicants for this role to have at least four years' relevant PQE and currently be working at a top 20 City firm or leading national firms. We will also consider Commonwealth lawyers with suitable experience and relocating to the UK from top-tier firms.
Further key attractions, which we can discus in more detail, are the very competitive base salary and high bonus element of the remuneration package, a collegiate and welcoming team, and reasonable hours culture for a team of this quality.
To discuss this opportunity in more detail and in the strictest confidence, please submit your details or contact Philip Jennings, Global Head of Private Practice, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 02039500527.Jameson Legal is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
