Experience   3+ years PQE
 
Job Location   Bristol
 
Level   Lawyer
 
Description

 

We are looking for a private equity funds lawyer to join our highly regarded funds and financial services practice.  Growing our private funds practice is a strategically important area for the firm.   The private funds team is led by Jeremy Bell, who joined in 2017 having spent more than 20 years in a leading City funds practice. We are looking for a high-calibre individual with the potential to help support and develop the practice working alongside Jeremy and other members of the team.   

Our practice

You will be involved in a wide range of high quality work, advising on structuring and formation of private investment funds across the alternative asset classes, including private equity/venture capital, infrastructure and real estate funds. 

We are focused on making our practice a challenger to the established City funds practices including growing our directory rankings.   Your role will include helping grow the client base and this is an opportunity to be part of a developing practice.  

Requirements

We are recruiting in response to the growth of this area.  The ideal candidate will have excellent legal skills, good knowledge of regulatory fundamentals and have the aptitude to see and help develop the tremendous potential in this area in the coming years.   While a private funds background is helpful, we would also be interested in corporate lawyers who would like to convert to this area.  A corporate law background is often excellent grounding for funds work.

Unique proposition

We believe Burges Salmon offers something very different from our competitors, particularly in this practice area where many candidates will be looking to relocate from the City.  Our one-site strategy means our lawyers are permanently based in Bristol and fosters a sense of collegiality and a positive working environment that we believe sets us apart from other firms.  But don't just take our word for it, we were recently awarded RollOnFriday Firm of the Year, for the third consecutive year.

As you would expect we also take training very seriously and have a structured training and development programme for all our lawyers.
