Job Description

Our client, a highly prestigious US law firm with offices in the heart of the City, are seeking an Investment Funds Paralegal to join them on a 6 month fixed term contract basis.

The successful paralegal will be sitting within the Investment Funds Group and will be an active member of a number of deal teams at any time. The candidate will take on the vital roles of transaction management, the preparation and coordination of closing documentation, and the tracking and co-ordinating of the KYC and other processes required.

To be considered, candidates must have a 2.1 or above Law degree, ideally the LPC and substantive legal work experience gained from the Funds department of a City or international law firm. Those who have worked in a 'deal-execution' team at a law firm will be particularly of interest.

The Paralegal will report directly to a number of Partners and the position will involve daily contact with other law firms and client contacts, therefore the ideal candidate must demonstrate strong interpersonal skills with the ability to build relationships.

If you are interested in the position and meet the above criteria, please send your CV in today for consideration.
