Job Description

A global investment bank based in Central London is seeking a senior lawyer with a background in prime services for a key role in the organisations prime services legal team. This role will report into the team head and will have the support of  3 junior lawyers within the team. 

You will be responsible for leading and supporting on all prime services matters and you will assist on other adhoc projects as required. The team focuses on securities lending, equity synthetics and prime brokerage agreements. There is a separate prime brokerage negotiation team so this would not be part of the remit for this role but they may call on you for advice should there be a tricky issue. You will also partner with the CASS team but a background in this is not essential. There will be a lot of exposure to very senior stakeholders both within legal and front office. 

As a qualified lawyer with at least 5 years PQE you will have some prime services experience, ideally at a high level. It would be preferable for you to have had some exposure to CASS but the prime services side is key. The client will also look at a candidate who has a derivatives or securities finance background with exposure to prime services. Strong private practice training from a reputable city firm is required and previous in-house experience in a financial services organisation is highly desirable. As this is a senior position, strong communication and stakeholder management skills are essential. This role comes with very varied work and a competitive  salary package.
