Don’t let yourself become pigeon-holed in a specific area of finance law: retain a more interesting mix of complex banking & finance work by joining a firm that will keep you exposed to a complete range of mandates.
Unlike most of the number one ranked finance practices, this firm doesn’t divide its banking practice into specialist teams where you will focus on a narrower category of financing. Rather they keep life interesting for their aspiring and intellectually curious lawyers by exposing everyone to a complete breadth of work, whether natural resources project finance, leveraged finance, leasing & asset finance, or debt capital markets, amongst other things.
Acting for more listed clients than any other UK-headquartered law firm, this elite private practice attracts very high stakes borrower-side instructions relating to strategically important acquisitions, crucial restructurings, and otherwise fundamentally complex deals. The team also takes on a significant amount of lender work, but only the more demanding transactions that an institution would prefer to entrust to a top tier firm.
Given the technical nature of the work, naturally, you will be given amble training & support, yet you will also be offered plenty of autonomy so that you can show your potential.
Being one of the most prestigious legal brands, the salary is up there with the best of the City firms, too.
