An interesting position with an leading independent leader, who are looking to add to their global reach and hire a Transactional Risk Specialist in Edinburgh.
This is a key hire for my client who have a sizable client base in Edinburgh and are looking to grow further in this sector. You will work as part of the international team, working on developing the business locally while supporting the team across existing deal flow.
The purpose of the role will be to advise on and structure insurance relating to Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). This will include selling products including warranty and indemnity insurance which is an insurance product used by buyers and sellers in connection with M&A transactions to cover liabilities under the warranties and tax indemnity. The team works with a lot of corporate lawyers in the Manchester area and law firms of all sizes nationally and internationally.
Main duties / responsibilities
Deal Execution - Working with junior associates below you and senior support as required you will be responsible for placing insurance in relation to M&A transactions.
Business Development - My client has an existing network of clients and contacts that they will introduce you to after you settle into the role. You will then help maintain, grow and build their relationships locally, nationally and internationally as opportunities present themselves.
Administration / Management - You will pro-actively assist and be part of team initiatives and drives as the business grows.
I'm keen to see applications from candidates ideally with M&A experience who are bright, enthusiastic, keen to learn and adaptable. The team is currently made up of people with legal and non-legal backgrounds. The majority of lawyers have a background in Corporate law but we would also be interested in hearing from lawyers with experience in Property and/or Litigation. We would also be interested in hearing from accountants who may fancy a change a path.
