Job Description

An excellent and rare opportunity has arisen for a high flying senior Corporate lawyer from a reputable law firm (either Of counsel or existing partners would be considered) to join this award winning international law firm.

Candidates should be qualified to practice law in Hong Kong and currently be fulfilling an Of Counsel or partner role in a corporate team (either M&A or capital markets, or a mix of both). Strong technical and Chinese/English language skills are essential for this role, as is an excellent track record for running complex and high profile corporate transactions, and managing and nurturing team members. Fast track partnership opportunities can be made available for exceptional candidates currently fulfilling an of counsel or senior associate role. 

For senior associates ready to step into an Of counsel role, an exceptional common law qualified lawyer could be considered for this opening. However, for more senior candidates, Hong Kong legal qualification is mandatory. 

An existing substantial client following is not a priority. Of more interest are candidates who are well connected with intermediaries in the field of their chosen practice, with a solid business plan to build their practice into something substantial and the motivation to execute this plan efficiently and quickly. This firm is looking to hire ‘the next big thing’ in the corporate field of law, a rising star, and an excellent business connector/deal-maker.
