This international law firm has undergone somewhat of a major transformation and makeover over the last few years, expanding rapidly in all their core practice areas. They are seeking an experienced and well rounded corporate lawyer to join their sizeable corporate team. As a team that promotes the development of associates into good all rounded corporate lawyers, you would be slotting into an existing platform that gives you a genuine platform to work on the full spectrum of corporate work, from general corporate (drafting joint ventures and shareholder agreements, reorganisations, sale and purchase of assets), general listings work, venture capital, M&A, and equity capital markets deals. The corporate team is friendly, collegiate, and puts great emphasis on nurturing their junior associates.
To qualify, candidates should be qualified to practice law in Hong Kong with a minimum 6 years PQE in corporate law, ideally having had exposure to a broad mix of corporate disciplines, including ECM and M&A work. Fluency in written and spoken Mandarin Chinese and English is a must, whilst fluency in Cantonese would be an added advantage. Candidates should be outgoing, with excellent interpersonal and client development skills, and be willing and able to contribute to the team's business development efforts.
