UNIQUE AND DIVERSE IN-HOUSE ROLE AT LEADING GLOBAL INVESTMENT FUND'S NYC OFFICE [CLASS oF 2008-2013]

A leading global investment firm with a growing NYC office is looking to add a lawyer to their team.

The hire will support both the debt team as well as the M&A infrastructure team, and thus the work will be a mix of M&A, infrastructure, and debt finance. Lawyers in this firm are very forward-facing, sitting on an open floorplan and working closely alongside the deal teams they support.  In fact, the reason for the search is because the current lawyer has transitioned internally to an investment-side position, thus demonstrating how integrated the lawyers are with the investment professionals. The fund is in the process of raising a debt fund, so this lawyer will be integral to the growth of the fund and will occupy a very visible, prominent position working directly with the global head of debt who sits in NY.  

We’ve placed the two most recent legal hires in the office who are enjoying their experience. This is an opportunity to join a progressive fund doing high-quality, diverse PE work. The fund offers terrific benefits and competitive compensation. Furthermore, there is room for promotion given that this hire will be the most senior lawyer supporting the debt team.  The hours (no billables!) are more predictable than at a law firm, and the lawyers are largely able to control their schedules.

One of our premier clients is looking for a corporate antitrust lawyer to join its collegial and close-knit team. We placed an associate in this group who has loved the work and the experience she is getting on extremely sophisticated transactions. This associate will get the opportunity to analyze transactions for reportability under ex-US foreign competition regimes, monitor changes to merger control agreements worldwide, advise M&A members on various regulations and/or assist with foreign filings and HSR compliance, among other things. Excellent opportunity to get hands-on experience in the transactional antitrust space while working amongst the best and the brightest lawyers. For more information, click here.
