This premier US and international law firm have an excellent new opportunity for a further junior- to mid-level Associate to join their busy and thriving UK Banking / Leveraged Finance team in London. Their pre-eminent and market leading practice acts for a stellar client-list of financial sponsors and corporates on some of the largest, most complex and innovative cross-border leveraged and acquisition financings across all tiers of the capital structure (incl. syndicated senior and second lien facilities, unitranche / private credit facilities, ABL facilities, Holdco PIK and fund financings). In addition to leveraged financings, a substantial part of the group's practice comprises infrastructure and real estate financings, restructurings and asset-backed financings, ensuring varied and interesting exposure to a range of top-level international deals. The team works closely with their leading financing colleagues in other international offices, particularly in the US, Germany, France and Hong Kong, with close integration across offices being key to their exceptional international client service. The team also works regularly alongside the firm's pre-eminent high yield practice (incl. on bank bridges to HY exits and SSRCFs sitting alongside HYBs) with their associates quickly becoming very knowledgeable about high yield financing structures and techniques (which increasingly inform the terms of European financings). The role accordingly offers a superb opportunity to be involved in top-level, London-based and international financing deals, working alongside (and learning from) market leading partners, and with the attraction of a premium rate NY salary package. Long term career prospects are also excellent within this thriving and top-level team.
