Our client is a US specialist asset manager with a special focus on complex performing and non-performing credit on behalf of commercial real estate lenders and investors. Following the success of their UK launch, the EMEA Head of Legal was promoted to Managing Director, they now seek a mid-level real estate finance lawyer to join their expanding Legal & Compliance team.

The Role

You will report to the Managing Director and focus on closing major deals where the business is acting as the Facility Agent and/or Security Agent. This position is closely aligned with the EMEA Credit Administration team where you’ll both work with external counsel in relation to reviewing, drafting and interpreting relevant finance documents. You will provide ad-hoc pragmatic legal advice and assistance to the wider EMEA team where you’ll be required to work autonomously on exciting projects.
