Recent forecasts are predicting a sharp rise in M&A deal activity through the US and Europe for the coming calendar year. Expectations are that these regions will significantly outperform the APAC region. This team is ideally positioned to capture this cross-border and international activity. This is due to the significant profile of this global firm in these regions and also two of the direct report Partners spending significant stretches on the ground there.
Technically, the role will primarily focus on private M&A transactions, as well as privatisations and financing of a range of projects. Spanning infrastructure, energy and resources clients and their respective projects, it can be expected that you will be involved with ‘traditional’ energy as well as a strong (and increasing) line of green energy projects. Highly topical now, it can only increase, making this an invaluable skill set to add as you progress.
While a significant global player, this is not one of the highly crowded, log-jammed firms. Particularly at the Senior Associate level. This will allow you some ‘free-air’ to continue your own progression within the ranks. One of the direct report Partners has a managerial capacity for the firm too, putting you in a strong position ‘politically’. Recognition will come in response to making an impact here.
You will have 5-8 years’ PAE for a reputed corporate legal practice (ideally top-tier, global) and excellent academics on your LLB. Strengths in private M&A, ideally in the E&R / infra sectors expected.
