Counsel - Asset Finance (7+ years' PQE)

Location: London
Job Type: Permanent
Reference: 01_160818
Sector: Legal Private Practice

A Mid-Atlantic US firm are seeking to a Counsel level hire to its expanding asset finance team. Historically, the firm is best known for its presence in the shipping sector although asset classes have been considerably expanded since the recent arrival of a well-known partner. The team’s current caseload is split between shipping and aviation finance.

In terms of culture, the atmosphere within the firm is very relaxed and things like working from home are the norm rather than the exception. The firm prides itself on being a lot less formal and hierarchical than the top UK and US firms. The overall remuneration package is excellent with the bonus structure being a stand-out feature.

You may have significant asset finance experience related to any asset class or perhaps you are a senior level general banking and finance lawyer who is seeking to specialise in asset finance.
