Job Description

An urgent requirement for an experienced banking lawyer is being offered by a trade finance team within one of the strongest names in UK banking.  The role will cover both commodity and non commodity trade finance, trade services for imports and exports, buying and selling down risk and contentious and distressed trade issues.  The role will be both transactional and advisory and legal risk management will form a significant part of the role as well as advising on lending secured on specific goods, discounting invoices and warehousing arrangements.

Although this role focuses on trade finance, general finance lawyers with a background in project or asset finance will be considered although some knowledge of invoice or trade instruments would be preferred. It is expected that the successful candidate will have a minimum or 4 years experience and a max of 8 years. You will be working in a large supportive team who can offer autonomy for mid to senior level lawyers.  You should have excellent academics, training and technical expertise for your level with a strong commercial focus.
