Job description

My client, an integrated real estate asset management business, which provides asset management services for capital invested by a leading London based private equity fund, is seeking a Legal Director to join their team. The business currently has circa $3.5 billion of assets under management across the office, industrial and retail sectors.

The Legal Director will oversee all legal aspects of a transaction, from the due diligence, structuring, post-completion financing through to asset management. In addition to running transactions, this individual will also be responsible for managing the wider risks of the business as well direct management for a more junior member of the legal team.

The successful candidate will be a senior level transactional corporate/finance lawyer (ideally with real estate exposure within that) with at least seven years' post-qualification experience gained at a city law firm. In-house experience, through a permanent move or secondment, gained within a similar business (a real estate investment firm or other alternative investment business) would be highly valuable.

It is crucial that the successful candidate is experienced in providing commercial legal advice. They will be sufficiently experienced and commercially astute to challenge commercial proposals and devise alternative approaches that add value/reduce risk.
