A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Funds Paralegal to join an elite US law firm in the City of London.
The Funds team at this firm dominate the big-ticket buyout space, advising on some of the largest European fund formation mandates. This firm offers fund managers a top platform for £multi-billion launches in London, along with innovative structuring solutions. Their enviable client list includes the largest private equity firms in Europe.
The firm are a very exciting place to be; they’ve gone through a real period of growth through a number of high profile lateral hires and their deals are some of the largest and most complex on the market.
They are a dynamic and agile firm with an extremely collegiate culture and operate a true open door policy (when they’re in the office – they operate a hybrid working policy). In terms of progression, the firm have just begun supporting paralegals in their qualification via the SQE. I know, it sounds too good to be true!
The role:
  • Preparing initial limited partnership agreements and registration documentation for new investment vehicles
  • Performing statement verification tasks for each new funds private placement memorandum
  • Drafting related AIFMD disclosures
  • Reviewing subscription documentation from investors investing in clients’ funds
  • Maintaining multiple trackers and checklists on various aspects of the funds process (including subscription documents, side letters and comment memos) for a significant number of investors in order to provide a continually updated status of each investor to attorneys and clients
  • Preparing and submitting Companies House filings
  • Drafting corporate authorisations, liaising with specialist regulatory counsel
  • Carrying out winding up / insolvency searches
  • Preparing opinion and closing bibles
About you:
  • Educated to GDL or LLB level, or equivalent
  • Whilst prior Funds Paralegal experience would be beneficial, applications are encouraged from those with more general transactional experience, perhaps from a non-legal role.
This Funds Paralegal role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to join a top team in this space. The quality of the work is second-to-none and the firm and there is also a generous salary on offer of £35,500 per annum, plus overtime. Please apply today to be considered!
