Legal Works are delighted to be recruiting for this world renowned practice currently in the market for banking and finance lawyer.


The firm now has an opportunity for an Associate to join this industry-leading and growing DCM & Derivatives team in London, with a particular focus on Derivatives. This is an exciting and challenging role and is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious Derivatives lawyer looking to develop their knowledge and progress their career within a global firm.

You will work across a wide range of OTC and exchange traded derivatives transactions for both sell-side and buy-side clients, offering an opportunity to develop a broad skill set.

The current practice is fairly diverse - there is a routine flow of finance linked and structured finance derivatives related matters, but this is supplemented by highly structured (and often complex) credit or equity linked transactions.

Therefore, being flexible will be an advantage. You will work directly with some of the world's leading Banks and Financial Institutions and collaborate with experts throughout the wider firm and across Dentons' international offices. As a result, you will be exposed to a wide range of structured derivatives transactions in Emerging Markets.


You will be encouraged to stretch yourself as a lawyer and to take an active role in developing client relationships from an early stage.

You will have the support of an excellent team of PSLs and comprehensive legal training. The firm also offers a excellent structured personal and career development programme.

Required experience, skills and attributes will include:-

*Technical Skills
*Solid derivatives experience gained within a top tier firm
*Experience in at least one of the following; Credit, Equity, Commodities, Rates, Islamic
*An understanding of netting and collateral is a pre-requisite. In addition, an ability to draft and review derivatives opinions (covering capacity & authority, and netting and collateral issues) would be beneficial
*A good working understanding of the regulatory framework, primarily EMIR. Knowledge of MiFID II would be beneficial
*Also a good working knowledge of the other industry standard master agreements (GMRAs, GMSLAs, OLSAs) would be beneficial
*Ideally English law qualified
*Strong academic record, including a degree or equivalent

EXCELLENT remuneration package is on offer.
