An excellent and rare opportunity has arisen for an ambitious corporate IPO lawyer from a reputable law firm (either Of counsel or existing partner level) to join this highly prestigious and well known international law firm. Owing to a substantial level of incoming business, the corporate team is seeking a senior corporate lawyer to help bear the workload in the team and to service clients. At the same time, the firm provides a fantastic platform to enable you to grow out your own practice.
Candidates should be qualified to practice law in Hong Kong and currently be fulfilling an Of Counsel or partner role in a capital markets/corporate team. Strong technical and Chinese/English language skills are essential for this role, as are strong client relationship management, drafting and negotiation skills. Fast track partnership opportunities can be made available for exceptional candidates currently fulfilling an of counsel or senior associate role.
A substantial client following is not the priority for this role, but some would be desirable at the outset. Of more interest are candidates who are well connected with related financial intermediaries, with a solid business plan to build their practice into something substantial, and the motivation to execute this plan efficiently and quickly, whilst also servicing clients from internal cross-team business referrals.
