I have been exclusively retained by a Piccadilly based boutique asset manager with £15bn AUM on their search for a new legal counsel. The successful applicant will be working directly with the Group GC and COO and will be part of a legal team that is highly involved in the day to day running of the business. You will be involved in all aspects of the business from corporate matters (restructurings, distributions, new office launches, tax) to funds work (fund launches, marketing of the funds, regulatory issues, fund strategies, trading) to ad hoc business matters.
Your Key Responsibilities will include:-
Advising portfolio managers on the launch of new funds and managed accounts;
Working with the investment team on fund strategy and marketing;
Advising on regulatory change that affects the business;
Negotiating varies fund documentation;
Advising on a range of corporate issues such as restructures, distributions, new office launches and commercial agreements.
This role is best suited to a lawyer with a background in either Private Equity, Corporate or Funds and between 1.5-3 years of experience. This is a very business facing role so the successful applicant will be dealing with the investment team and other business functions (Investor Relations, Compliance, Ops, Risk) on a daily basis. The role will require the successful applicant to work on a range of issues which will expose them to all aspects of this business and become imbedded within the day to day working of an asset manager.
