Job Description

Our client, a US law firm is seeking a paralegal to join their world-renowned Funds team on an initial 6 month contract basis.

This is a fantastic and very high-level role, and the successful paralegal will be part of a number of Funds deal teams at any time (from initiation through closing) and will initially take on the vital roles of transaction management, the preparation and coordination of closing documentation, and the tracking and coordinating of the KYC and other processes required of investors in advised funds. Paralegals showing initiative within their deal teams have developed into areas of work traditionally carried out by trainee solicitors and junior associates, and have become the 'experts' in the team in those areas.

To be considered, candidates will have passed the LPC and will also ideally have substantive legal work experience, within a 'deal execution' team at a law firm.

Flexibility is a must for this role, as well as being proactive and organised. In addition, candidate should possess strong interpersonal skills as they will be working under the close supervision of the associates.

Please apply now for consideration.
