Job Description


International firm are offering a senior funds solicitor an exciting opportunity. The successful candidate can be based in either Edinburgh or London so the role might suit an exiled Scot looking to return home or a candidate from outwith who wants to work in the City. It is anticipated that the ideal candidate would be a private practice lawyer with at least 7 years’ experience of funds establishment and related work.

This is a wide-ranging role which will include a significant business development aspect in addition to being a client-facing role:

  • drafting constitutional documentation including limited partnership agreements, unit trust deeds and shareholder agreements;
  • drafting and negotiating ancillary documentation such as management agreements and administration agreements;
  • advising on carried interest arrangements;
  • reviewing marketing material and conducting verification exercises;
  • high level advice on UK financial regulation as it relates to investment funds (specifically a familiarity with AIFMD and the UK's financial promotion regime);
  • negotiating fund documentation with investors and dealing with side letter requests;
  • drafting LLP agreements in relation to setting up new managers;
  • dealing with offshore law firms and administrators;
  • reviewing fund documentation for institutional investors and preparing user friendly reports;
  • negotiating with fund counsel when acting for investors (either as cornerstone investor or as a minority investor) and ideally when acting for UK pension funds; and
  • discussing new funds with both start-up and experienced managers.
