Your new company
A market leading professional services and insurance organisation in the City, with international reach and over 25,000 employees globally. The organisation's extensive infrastructure provides for excellent career development opportunities, and it works with some of the world's premier corporate, private equity and legal organisations. With revenues exceeding $5billion, this is a global heavyweight.

Your new role
A corporate sitting within the company's M&A and Private Equity team. The role would be ideal for a corporate lawyer looking to move in-house to a more advisory position. In connection with M&A transactions, you will advise on transactional risk, including advising on how M&A insurance products can be included to ensure commercial aims are met. You will guide clients throughout transactions, highlighting the benefits and mechanics of warranty and indemnity insurances and leading insurer negotiations to consolidate coverage position.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a UK-qualified corporate lawyer with 2-5 PQE or equivalent experience (applications from lawyers with more experience would also be welcomed). You will have trained at a top City law firm, and have gained excellent exposure to M&A and/or private equity work. Experience advising on warranty and indemnity insurance would be an advantage, but is not essential for the role. You will be confident managing internal and stakeholders, particularly the deal teams in the clients' employ. You will be a confident negotiator with a commercial mindset and excellent understanding of advising on risk.

What you'll get in return
The chance to work with some of the largest and most prestigious organisations across a range of sectors. You will be able to utilise your existing corporate M&A skill set in a greater advisory remit, with greater visibility on what difference your work is making. The company has an excellent sense of employee development, and will help you complete courses and training that will boost your professional profile. This exceptional organisation also offers exceptional benefits and a close-knit team culture that will contribute to a great first step into the in-house world.
